Our beloved AWL bearded dragon Bobby, had to go to the veterinarian yesterday. I had found a fantastic reptile veterinarian only an hour away from our Animal Sanctuary.
Bobby bleeds from his mouth, especially when he eats grasshoppers!
I am the only one handling Bobby, and during his stay here for 3 weeks, nothing special has happened!
Veterinarian examined him and told me that Bobby got an old fracture on his jaw. The jaw is trying to heal!
We have no idea what or when this could have happened! The former person that cared about him said he thought he bleed from his mouth when shedding.
When rescuing animals, even with a story being told to you about the animal, bring the animal(s) to be examined by an experienced person!
When Bobby came to us a piece of his tail was gone, and several toes missing. We don’t know why…we can only guess. He has been in different homes before finally ending up with us.
For now, he will be without crickets for two weeks, and after that, another examination at the veterinarian!
Even if I feel good that we are recycling doesn’t help with the bigger problem out there.
Me and my children try to catch each other in every plastic moment. And Me, Mom, are trying to always bring our reusable cups/straws in my bag.
I know I say that about every one I meet. However, this little guy was (is) my favorite. Petting him was like strocking velvet. He jumped right up to my scarfs to check out who the biggest lizard was.
Big fear, I admit and I dont like it. But I admired her from distans. My daughter though petted and fell completly in love with Odot! She was found in a plastic box on the highway. Kind people brought her to the Herpetarium.
A fabulous day together with passionate students at the Reptile Herpetarium/Marine Biology. We learned so much from you all. Thank you!
Flying from Germany yesterday, into Detroit, Michigan went well. Kids and me made it easy to travel with only one hand luggage. We are only staying for a couple of days. I am not the most patient person to stay and wait for my luggage. I like to get off the plane and leave directly! The jet leg kicked in and I woke up 02.30 this morning. At 04.09 I went to the gym. No people, how strange !
At 05.30 thank Above Starbucks opened. I was their first customer!
They beauty is though, that I could sit in the quietness and write, while listening to the children’s deep sleeping. It was meditating wonderful start.
However, not at 09.00 when everybody wakes up, I am ready to go back to bed 🙂
