V shed his skin last night, and had his sutures removed today. The incision is closed, clean, and healthy! Dec 14, 2016

      OK, I'm really interested in knowing about the "Mississippi Map Turtle"! LOL

      Just wanted to send you a personal thank you for all your help. I really appreciate your insight and it has really REALLY helped me to understand some things that frankly should have been kind of common sense (for me at least). Oh and I'm sure Gomez thanks you too. ;-)

      welcome! nice to find a space to share with fellow herpers. The herps in my household outnumber the people about 5 to 1 (and I expect that to increase...) started with the basics, and the collections just seems to grow... you know how that goes, when you go to the herp expo not intending to get anything... We have been taking on 'refugees' when we have the means to do so. People talk about animal abuse a lot, but they tend to think of greyhounds, and horses, and the likes. Not very many people speak up for herps, and there are not very many herp shelters, even here (Florida) where they are needed. I know I can't take on every abused snake and lizard and turtle, but if I could, I would. I hate to see animals suffer from human negligence or abuse. So far, we have taken on two permanent additions, one severely abused ball python. He came with cigarette burn scars, rodent bite scars, respiratory infections, etc. He is the sweetest and most mild-tempered of all of our snakes (see Sáhail in my album). And one Water Dragon (see Willow in my album), who was near-starved, also had respiratory problems, eye lesions, layers and layers of accumulated unshed skin, and was too weak to even chase her crickets (had to be hand fed when we brought her home) Both are doing 100% better now. Both will have permanent eye damage, but they are not totally blind, and are able to function normally.
