In Reply to: You don't have to take them off the sand............ posted by bradley on May 10, 2003 at 21:25:25:
I purchased these two about 6 weeks ago. Their tails were both lost and started growing back when I brought them home. A boy and his father brought them back to the pet store, because the big one "Leo" walked funny and the little one " Herracio" lost his tail. "Leo" barks every once in a while, very cute.
I feed them out of a bowl with calcium powder in it, so they don't have try to grab anything off of the sand. I usually put 12 - 15 small meal worms in the bowl at night and in the morning there is maybe one or two left, but within an hour after I turn the lights on, they are also gone. They just look so cubby.
Thank you both for your posts.
