Lizard tummy trouble

So my little Ramses is having tummy trouble. I went on line and got some info regarding my concerns. I also consulted an exotic vet tech and then went right to my wildlife Vet friend from the WRC. The all advice lead to keeping track of his weight, feeding him pumpkin 4 times a day to loosen things up and soak him in warm water 4 times a day for no less than 20 minutes at a time. Increase his heat for his light bulb and keep an eye on him.
Or maybe.......... He is a she. Upon further examination, this is a VERY likely possibility. The tummy problem might be infertile eggs........to be continued. K~

he/she looks like the pumpkin is very agreeable to him/her.

will pray.

Oh good grief. Hasn't this very thing happened before with a turtle?? Can't wait to see what happens next.

Karen said...

Oh, and "upon closer examination" really got me thinking. And not in a good way.
