Hi Kim,

First, I just wanted to say what a rare and special person you are and that Dill is very fortunate to be under your care.

VERY IMPORTANT. I need Dill's weight. If you can get that to me today. ( A postage scale will do). I can contact Ron Tonight (He's not a computer user and get his opinion for you. But I need the weight to get a proper response.

Part of Dill's eating inconsistency may be partially stress related due to lack of climbing ability. As I have stated before, on a heavily climbing species such as this, A PTS w/o toes is like a fish w/o fins. Once the health issue is passed, We'll work on this problem. I promise.

It is normal for PTS to pass turds on an inconsistent basis. It is a fact that they are stimulated to poop during a heavy rain shower; both in the wild and in outdoor enclosures. They love a good rain. I suggest you simulate a rain shower every so often to achieve this.

I hope to hear from you soon,
Sincerely,
Brian
SFCRC
