    I think they bore Chameleon for the most part lol . Septiceye will eat them but Frances won't and she eats like she never ate before . One would think I starved her .

    Ugh, my stupid email didn't give me notifications.

    He must have been desperate to eat those other dubias the other day, because he was not putting up with it another day.

    Not much news on V today, normal V stuff. He only seems to have eaten 1 cricket from the dish today, but I know there were a couple escapees that I'm hoping he nabbed. He hung upside down from the screen today, and I finally saw his reaction to the mist which is basically just sitting there, not running. I'll take it.

    Big update, though, is my little pet family grew again today. I took in a rehomed beardie that has disabilities due to MBD. I'll spare repeating myself and just link to the beardie forum where I go into detail

    She actually does not look to bad . She should be a Quick turnaround for you . Will you brin her to vet ? Or do you think you have her under control ?

    I'd like to get her in for a wellness checkup, but I'll let her settle in and assess her condition first. The inside of her mouth looks a little puffy, but not worrisome

    Just made the realization V has been munching on his pothos leaves. So cute!!
    I noticed bite marks, but I just assumed it was loose bugs chewing until I checked on him at lunch and he was hugging onto a very chewed up pothos leaf, looking all adorable, and finally it connected.

    He practically has that entire leaf gone.
    So, so cute.

    Like little v shaped missing pieces . You might Thule some greens offered to him . Red bell pepper and dandelion is a big hit with Miss Grumpy Butt .

    Good to know, I'll have to give it a try!
    I'm stopping for some baby food for the rescue beardie, I'll pick up some bright veggies. If V doesn't like them, maybe the dragons will. If they don't, maybe the bugs will...

    I'm sure you already know but if she is backed up organic pumpkin purée works really well .

    Ya, I've done baby food squash in the past, but I'm going to look specifically for pumpkin when I go, mixed with a bit of olive oil

    Just gave her soak. About 2ml of pumpkin into her and a few drops of olive oil.

    I really broke up a lot of the stuck on shed. Her colors are coming out
