I've been obsessing over the proper care for months! xD Keep reading breeder care sheets and comparing info, since the net has so much 'knowledge' xP

I'll prlly feel less anxious once he starts eating, but I imagine that might be another day or two from all the moving around.

=/ he did poop once though and half of it was the black substrate from the petstore. I'm really not seeing any pros to having sand in the future - I MIGHT switch to a reptile carpet later on, but paper towels are super easy to clean, and cheap. Easy to spot clean. Whole shebang. And he can't ingest them.

Grey Hairs

So~.........

Anyone here not get grey hairs over their pets? xD

Due to my anxiety over Pascel settling in, of course I've been watching his digital thermometer like a hawk, and have been researching more and more info for his best care.

But then the temp hit the high-end of the gradient and I kind of got nervous. Added more paper towel as an insulator, and even raised the tank a half inch to help with heat ventilation.

Which brings me to this;

Why wouldn't popular UTH companies simply build a thermostat into their UTH? Yes, it'd cost more, but I know that people who really want these lizards to survive long would be more than willing to fork out the dough to afford a UTH/tstat combo. Like, srsly. I HATE having to track one down separately because my "local" *cough* store *lethbridge, cough* doesnt have half the ****e I need, or brands I want.

So noooo gotta track one down online from the least shady looking online store. That still has to quote me a proper shipping price. -_-;

Cool o_O

Small update::

Aura died, so now ther's just Wrathion in with the Cories.

Styxx passed a few weeks after going blind in his left eye.

Artemis also passed - after pine coning severely over night.

The gerbils are still spoiled absolutely rotten, as is Pascel, who is now finally eating.

Not yet sitting in my hand, but eating and associating me with food.

Baby steps.

Also -- chances are I wont be around BF much -- so pleas,e please, PLEASE feel free to message me about adding to Facebook, Skype or DeviantArt!! Met some great people here, dont want to lose contact.

I was starting to wonder about you, I'll have to follow your page so we can stay in touch if need be.

I went and checked out your FB a bit- they are all beautiful, I found the whale on the moon (inspired at all by that hourglass painting by someone else I saw through you a while back?) and jellyfish particularly stunning.
