I have adopted for the summer a milk that my bio teacher kept. Here is the setup he uses for a 4 foot honduran-
A 50 gallon wood tank with no heating. I am using a lamp by clamping the cage over th lamp wire to get it inside the cage. It provides some heat, at least.
Gravel that had not been cleaned in two years. It is thrown out, and I am using reptile carpet.
He never fede the thing(I had an order of 200 hoppers that was supposed to last me a year, but I am feeding him 5 on feeding day.They are ever growing less.
Now, how do I get him to change his husbandry? I will be taking him my junior year for AP(college level, hard enough w/out bitter teacher), so nothing that will piss him off to much. He has a problem with arrogance,, so it cant be to acuusatory. Maybe I could buy it? If so, how to broach the subject? I might be able to get mom to pay for it even, since it is in such bad care with him.
I need help form teachers, since they might know howw to talk to one of their own.
The milk had not had a cpmpleat shed all year under his care. It hadone about a month ago, all nice and neat, finally. Some of the last piecemeal shed was still on when he did that.
