I know! I couldn't believe it! I mean, think about his/her day. S/he wakes up in his home, tubbaware bin, etc. that the breeder kept him/her in. S/he is scooped out and taken away in a truck to petco. Then s/he and his bro's and sis's are dumped in a new tank with sand in it and food crawling around. Then I come along and I take him away in a cardboard box and put him in his new home, which is a little on the cool side. Working on it! The lamp is getting warmer. And yet he eats, walks around, laps at water! Now he is sleeping. :)
Sorry! I'm just so excited about my new little baby, I have to post some more pics. :) I added two fake silk plants from around the house, and I pur a little old washcloth (dry, of course!) in his hidey cave, to keep him warmer. :) Here is his tank now. ;)
Thank you! Haha, I can't get over his/her adorableness either! Pepper is sooooo cute. :) I never thought I'd ever want a reptile, but after seeing my bro's Spike... now I have my own dear little Pepper! Soooo cute. I just put a heat lamp in, and he is being much more active now. He was so cold, poor dear! My bro gave it to me, because Spike has a heating pad. I can't believe Pepper is already eating! He's eaten 3 mealworms today. ;) Hehe, he just licked his eyeball. LOL. I lufs my new guy!
Thank you! I know! I measured Pepper and s/he is barely even 3.5". :) I lufs Pepper already! S/he just ate 4 mealworms for breakfast and is now walking around under the basking lamp. Very active and healthy!
