:looks better. his color andall looks better and he is a little less lethargic. me and dad tried toget him to eat again but he's not interested.
:i found a syringe i needed years ago unopened and pushed some water to his mouth...... he was -thirsty-. he has a water dish at all times he goes to but I am thinking he may not be drinking as much as he should. he _really_ liked the water from the syringe.
:so i put him in a little container and have him under a heated lamp again so he can get very warm, hopefully o encourage eating the mealworm in his container.
:my dad said we'll give him a little more water every hour to be sure he's not dehydrated. if he was, i am _relieved_ because we can rehydrate.....
:if he will not eat by tonight i'll have to force feed him. this is a 'there are no other options' scenario. i really, really don't want to force feed him.... but, we are fighting for him.
:i am much calmer now..... last night... scared me and my parents.
:he looked sooooooooooooooo horrible. his color is much better now
:(and no, it isn't a shedding issue)
:Iguanabelikejesus, you mentioned baby food before. what kind?
:i never imagind i'd do this but i'm thinking of puret some mealworm and feeding him that with a syringe also.
:but... he looks better than he did!
