Where we live, at our library, there aren't any herp-related books to rent out, which is quite unfortunately, and not even our local pet store stocks them.
Mygala ~ Thanks, that was very helpful. They are in the process of recovering, I just am worrying that i'll take too long. When they were born, we didn't know that they needed sunlight as much, all though the were kept in a pretty sunny room. I'm afraid that they will still be pretty sick all their lived because they didn't receive that sunlight as babies.
That's why I think anyone should research any potential pet BEFORE they get them. All too often, the owners lack of knowledge can translate into pain, suffering, illness or death for the animals.
Yes, I feel terrible at the moment. It's as if we put this disease upon them. I wish I could correct this instantly.
Our second problem is, where to find a herp-veterinarian. All our local vets don't accept reptiles at all, and I wouldn't know where to start searching for one. Another problem is, one of our babies's tails has fallen off because the skin that was supposed to be shed didn't come off completely and blocked the blood supply to his tail. We read on that skink caresheet that if their tails fall off you have to treat it with antiseptic stuff, which we did, but the site also mentions that if it swells up, you must seek veterinarian advice instantly. I am afraid we won't find one.
