Update on Miracle/ New Edition

Some of you may remember my leopard gecko rescue, Miracle.
If you don't, check 'er out: You won't believe this....a new rescue....

Anyway, her tail has been growing in very nicely!
Here's a few pictures of her:

AND I decided I'd get another leo. Sooo here is my new girl, who doesn't have a name yet. (Well, I think she's a girl, but I won't know for sure for a while still). She's somewhere between 2-5 weeks old. She's adorable! Was so skittish, and still is when you try to pick her up, but once I do, she settles in and just loves it! She might go live with her big "sister" when she's older, or she'll get her own tank(if she's a boy she'll have to get her own tank).

^ She's got a smiley on her head! :P (she was just finishing shedding here)

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.
Dishing out the truth one post at a time

I went back and read a lot of the other thread. Poor baby. That's why I don't like people as a whole, just a select group. I mean come on, how hard would it have been to find someone else to take her in the first place. Animal cruelty, in my opinion, should not be taken any more lightly then cruelty to people. If anything it's worse since the poor animal has little to no chance of defending his/herself. Stupid friggin people! *swearing rant in my head* Grrrr!

So glad she has you to love and care for her now.

I went and read the thread and was... Just horrified. If you don't want an animal, find it a home with someone who will give it some tlc! She's looking great, though! Bet she's a happy lizard now! And I'm insanely jealous of your little one! So cute!

Congrats on your new addition!

I read the beginning of the old thread before seeing this one and the whole ordeal was just awful. I am so very glad that the neglect and cruelty she was subjected did not damage her permanently and she was able to bounce back and live a great life in your care.

Gah! They're so freaking adorable! Reptiles are so cute (well, snakes kinda scare me, but that's probably just a defense mechanism type thing). I really want a bearded dragon, but we have no room for a tank that large.

Oh wow. I just got choked up reading your rescue thread. I'm not into lizards or reptiles but I could not resist something with that face that was suffering. Gah!!

Love the new girlie with her big smile :) :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

The new girl looks great! I got freaked out by Miracle's tail before I read what it was lol! Looks like a snail decided to get stuck to her! Good progress though :D It will get skin like the rest of her right? :/
