i have been leaving Zulu outside for almost a week now and i feel it has been doing some good for him:), temps are good and has water and i feed when i come back from school, still misses from his tongue but recently he shot his tongue the longest ive seen in a awhile, though he misses..went to the vet and he said he was fine and was clean from a fecal, his appetite is every two days and he eats decently, just needs my help, i might start placing a cup for him...the marks he has is what the vet feels are most likely burns and happens to be healing well...he has no other physical problems, and actually ESCAPED:eek: from his larger outdoor cage while outside(fixed the issue), we were looking and looking for him and i found him in the mullberry tree chillaxing and as if i wouldnt worry -___-

anyway here are the pics i found him after his escape and some shots of him at night, i hope you enjoy them:)

Now that is a nice looking panther right there!!

Outside will do him great. I wouldnt cup feed though. If you have the time and he will hand feed make him try to shoot as far as possible for the feeders. After a couple missed attempts go back to the normal feeding procedure. It is a muscle and it would seem to me that it would need "worked out" after not using it for a while from an injury or calcium issue.

Thanks Cain:), i will d oas you suggested and was against cup feeding all together, just worry about not eating by himself, but i think with sometime, practiice, and beign outside hopefully he would regain his tongue mojo, like it used to be


AND thank you Theresa, TeX Ranger, and Ken for the wonderful compliments:D, Zulu is quite the quirky cham indeed:p, although he hasnt shed in like two months lol

hi Ace, Zulu looks so beautiful. I wish the day pictures were better though. It is hard to see him. Sorry to hear you are having all the problems. Glad you found him outside! Lucky for you!!! I think the sun will do him a world of good. There is nothing like it. Romeo spends a good portion of the day out in the natural sunlight. I am not as brave as you and would never leave him outside! I won't even let him sleep on my patio at night! I guess I am just a paranoid mom!!

Im with Jared I wouldnt cup feed him either. When I got my mitsio Hulk. He had a tongue issue. Now almost 9 months under my care he can shoot it almost 6". It was only able to go out about inch maybe two when he first arrived. I got him on a well gutloaded feeder diet. I dont supplement him hardly at all except plain calcium. He only get d3 once month and he gets a multi vita maybe once every 5 weeks. He had a little bit of edema also. He was overweight too. Well the edema has almost cleared up entirely. He looks like a nice muscular pardalis male as opposed to a bloated swelled up pardalis male. It really is amazing what a good diet and proper supplementation can do for them. I hand feed him exclusively so that i can make him excercise his tongue at feedings. I feel the combination of the good diet and making him excercise his tongue is what has helped him to date. Now I just wish he would breed with my female. :rolleyes:

Thank you Texas Panther Man, this does reassure me that with alittle patience and dedication, i'm sure my cham's tongue will be like Hulk's. I am really amazed by how a few days outside with proper husbandry can do for them. thank you for sharing your experience with a similar issue as mine. And as for Hulk, im sure he'll come around for the ladies,lol, he has too, Mitsios are another locale we need in the U.S more often:cool:
