Hello all. Hermes is doing okay overall minus his accident a few weeks back.He has been gaping more than normal since BEFORE the accident. However, when he opens his mouth wide and swallows it looks like his epiglottis breathing but in addition there is another BIG bulge I see not sure if it is normal or not? Drache613/Tracie, Diane, Barb,--help me out here since you know his life story

Hello Julianne,

How swollen is his throat? Do you have any pictures?
Do you use the Herptivite vitamins, right?
Could he have injured his throat area when he fell?

Sent you a PM but he gets herptivite on the food we force feed him and cant tell you how swollen or if it is swollen as I dont know what it should look like on the inside of his mouth and throat to start with. HE still gets critical care.I have been giving your calci blast every other day and the serraptase daily
however he didnt get the serraptase since this past weekend as the care taker was concerned that it smelled fermented--is that a normal smell?

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

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?
