Sorry to hear this has happened! I can tell you love your girl! With that being said I would still take her to the vet before it becomes a bigger health issue :( At that point it might be too late and you'll feel even more guilty if it's fatal :(

I had just begun to think for sure that Zeussy didn't eat the plastic baggy because she showed no changes in appetite, digestive schedule, behavior.

Lo and behold, today she did her usual ritual of jumping on the lawn, eating a couple of her favorite weeds (dandelion greens), and then she had her normal afternoon duties.


I could not believe my eyes! I noticed her stool was a lot larger than usual, and when i went to pick it up off the grass i noticed it was no normal poop. It was in fact the entire sandwich baggy encompassed in her stool, neatly wadded into a cylindrical shape.

She didn't really struggle much to get it out, but boy i could tell she was happy that was out of her tummy.

It has been nearly two months since she ate it!! The poor thing.

I have been feeding her soft food (A mix of Oxbow Critical and Carnivor care) with the occasional few crickets once a week. The first week i thought she ate the baggy i gave her about a half a teaspoon of olive oil before any food.

She passed stool every day since then like clockwork and showed no signs of distress, so that was very odd seeing as she had that in her tummy the whole time.

Well, in closing i am very happy she passed the baggy and i hope this doesn't happen to anyone else but if it does i recommend a soft wet diet with olive oil to start.

Sorry for the gross pictures i just wanted everyone to see the result of this incident and also if anybody didn't believe :wink:

Thanks guys, yah it must have been so unimaginably uncomfortable for her those past two months but its out!!! haha

Heres a couple shots of her now, first was a little while after her ordeal she was chilling getting some sun on the deck. The second is her new favorite spot on the window sill in the living room. She loves looking out the window for hours with Athena (my other beardie not in the pic) and now she learned she can just fit on the sill so she can catch the last rays of sun.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
