In Reply to: Does my leachie look healthy? posted by ZPD on October 13, 2002 at 15:08:04:
Looks slightly skinny to me. I think that is usual for a leachie for that age? Mine are about the same.
Put your index finger on itīs hip, feel the hip and then let your finger run over the back. Itīs ok if you can feel the hip-bone slightly. Ideally you shouldnīt be able to feel the spine. If the hip-bone stings you index finger and you can feel the spine clearly then your leachie is too thin, you should concider feeding it more heavily.
In a welfed adult you shouldnīt be able to feel the hip-bone at all. In the hatchlings I have bought the hip-bone can be felt but is not very prominent.
just mu 5 cents.
:I have had him for about 4 months now. All he wants to eat is baby food suppplemented with calcuim. I see poop on the floor of his cage, so i assume he is eating. This is the only thing besides a snake that i have ever enjoyed as far as reptiles go.
