Hi Tom.I was talking to my vet in Tucson who treats the reptiles
at the ASDM about 2 months ago.We were talking about the varius he had mentioned that they have isolated a chuckwalla herpes virus.I don't remember all the exact details but I will be seeing him Monday,Jan27 and I will find out more details.It sounds to me you have some parasite or massive infection of some sort going on with your animals.I would difinitly have some fecals done on your remaining animals.I don't really believe the chucks truly go down.I have seem my hispidus out and sunning on days in the upper 60's lower 70's.They will be out for sure this week,as it is suppose to reach 80's. Anyway I will let you know when I get some info..
