That's so awesome - I love the story behind Warrior!I named mine Hazel be because She is a Hazel color. My other one who I just rescued is Warrior and the reason I named him Warrior because he was fighting for his life And he was gonna be a warrior and fight for his life and I knew that he will make it.
What a heartwarming story- ALL THE WAY AROUND. I love it. Thanks for sharing.My male is Zen. He is the most chill creature on the planet, so he lives up to his name.
The 2nd id ruby. I was taking the girlfriend to get a big stand up jewelery box for xmas. We stopped at a reptile store for supplies and they had a rehab. She was in bad shape but the gf fell in love and they let us take her. She was dark red was we called her ruby.....
Got her home and she turnex tbe most beautiful orange. Not red at all now lol
The 3rd is snicker doodle she was red also with a huge dusting of black. The gf commented she looked like a snicker doodle cookie and it stuck.
Got her hone and now she is orange with blue bars.
I think stress causes them to turn red, 2 in a row was dark red at the reptile store and turned orange at home.
Just fyi ruby is recovering very well she has regained use of her rear legs, is quite alert and eats well. Sadly she does show some mbd but its slight.
But it isn't bad enough to hamper her. Now she is just spoiled!!!
he's a super trooper champ as of his last vet visit a couple weeks ago! weighing in at a chonky 475g today, he's just about to turn 2 and we got him at 6 months at 11g. he was totally a case of someone buying him as a gift for her mom and not thinking things through mixed with thinking the pet stores would be correct in their information/sales. i'm glad they knew enough to tell they couldn't provide for him correctly and asked if i wanted him after only a month of having him. "YES! give me that baby!" this site and the people on it are truly the reason he is alive. i love watching the community help babies (and adults) in rescue situations.Hopefully he is doing good now.
I never understand How people can bring these guys home and not do enough research to at least give them the basics. It's sad. But it makes ne happy when they find a new good hone
IHOP is so creativeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee- I too always name a pet but call it by a nickname LOL. This is why my pets are always confused!Mine was originally a house pet at the residential treatment facility I worked at and was named IHOP (International House of Pets) by one of the residents. We had just gone to eat at IHOP as an incentive. The name never quite felt right though, so when that resident left he was renamed Smaug, after the dragon in "The Hobbit." I adopted him when the facility closed down, and I usually just call him "Duder" or "My guy."
