Hey everyone! Just wanted to post a quick update on Rex, the 25 year old alligator that was kept in a 3' box his entire life before we rescued him. He is doing GREAT! He has gained weight, length and strength. He prowls around his room, basks, swims, and just loves his pool! I swear it seems like he never leaves it. He has grown about 3-4 inches since we got him back in March, and his mouth rot seems to have gone away about 90%. He is also target trained now! He has learned to follow a small target on the end of a pole, which is very helpful when I'm changing bulbs, bedding, etc. in his enclosure. My only concern is that he still has glassy teeth; a sign of osteomalacia or calcium deficiency. I've been dusting his food (fish, rats, chicken, whatever it may be) with calcium powder every meal and sneaking a vitamin B pill into every other meal, but it just doesn't seem to be enough. Does anyone know if it would be safe to sneak a calcium pill into his food too? Can you overdose on calcium? Oh, and he loves head scritches PS. Sorry the pictures are sideways! They somehow turned during the upload onto the forum.
