Thank you for responding to my post! Like you said I am recouporating the plated; why would I have him in the same cage??? It's basic knowledge not to put more than 1 animal in a quarantine cage. The plated lizard is most likely a wild caught animal that i bought from Xtreme reptiles(I wouldn't recommend them as a good wholesale source by the way). The plated does not eat from chronic dehydration and is very skinny. I'm syringe feeding the plated presently with chicken flavored baby food and miner-all. The plated lizard won't defecate until there is something in its system. Until then, it really can't pass anything to the collard. There are no visible signs of nematodes and/or parasites.
Currently, I'm nursing a severly dehydrated Henkel's leaf-tail, the plated, a Cuban Night anole and watching the collard lizard. I will put together an ESU medium habitat cage for the collard and seperate him/her. The only reasoning behind putting together the lizards together was because of the gergarious nature of my desert lizards. The collard is not dark, closing its eyes and/or not moving. As I said, its active, alert and inquisitive. But, I will quarantine him/her to be extra careful. All my animals recieve excellent care...I'm not about to start on the wrong path. I hope that reassures you:) Thanks for the response!
