::Just when you think you have everything figured out these lizards will kick you square in the a$$. As a couple of you know I have had some crappy luck so far this winter. I lost my oldest female San Esteban Island chuckwalla and the female Baja Blue Rock lizard AR sent me at the beginning of December during hybernation. Although both seemed very fat and healthy they seemed to be severely dehydrated if that is possible. My adult male Baja Blue Rock lizard also seems to be on his way out. Attempts to rehydrate him seem to be failing miserably. Then my wife calls me at work yesterday and tells me that my yearling male cyclura lewisii hybrid seems very lethargic. Well by the time I got home he was dead. Also very healthy looking and was eating like a pig just the day before. I figure if this keeps up I will have no lizards by spring and will be free again. Since it's been kinda slow I figured I would just update you all.
:man tom that is bad luck and im sorry,you really took a hit. were they all down for the winter?hope things get better for ya.chris
