Well, I havent checked with the airlines that I am taking, but it isnt a direct flight, so I would have to pay for 2 plain rides. And some one on a beardie forum who works for an airlines said that ony dogs, cats, and birds are allowed in the cabin, but i havent checked on that either. My grandparents condo doesnt allow pets anyway. We are gone for 8 days, but we leave early and get home late so that is 10 days worth of Wink-sitting.


I actually found someone good to take him. She has 6 leo geckos of her own, and she works at a pet store that takes great care of their reptiles. She sounds excited to take him, and she set aside a 40 gal breeder for him too. Wink is licking babyfood squash from a syringe, so I wont ask her to force feed him solid food. I just put his calcuim/multi vites in the sqaush, and he seems to be doing pretty good that way. He will eat a super or 2 every couple days too.
The vet tech would have been $80, and I really cant afford that for one lizard... I have 4 different pet sitters watching every one, and they need to be paid a little something too!

He's eating, that's great! Just make sure she doesn't get too attached to him and try to um....*ahem* extend her Wink-sitting.

You may want to be careful about how much baby food you are giving him. It contains a lot of sugar, acid etc... which isn't really good for reptiles. Also it can lead to MBD and other nutritional deficiencies.


Have you tried blending up his veggies with water and trying that instead?

The baby food Im feeeding him is just organic squash and water, nothing else.
Im still giving him his calcium so he wont get MBD. I have still have some collards and acorn squash, so I can blend some for a little variety... Or make a delicious super worm smoothie. Yum!

Guess who downed 11 superworms today?! He has never eaten that much, even before this all started! Geez, its like he woke up this morning and thought "Hmmm... I think Ill be healthy today." Hes a mystery, thats for sure He also grew a little bit too... hes about 17 inches now. I hope he keeps it up!

Wink threw up this morning or during the night. I didnt see it happen, but there were superworm parts everywhere and his little beard was dark-ish. I gave him a bath and some babyfood right away this morning, but he wont eat any more bugs for now. Ugh... One step forward, 2 steps back I guess.
I think he just ate too much. It makes me really sad, cause he was in such a good mood yesterday.

He probably just expanded his stomach too much, puked it up, and is feelin poopy.

Its good that he WANTED to eat the other day though, just if he wants to do it again feed him in moderation, probably less than what he was eating before.

I would try giving him less food. It like when you have a starving person you don't want them eating tons of rich foods right away, they need to eat small amounts of bland food to get their body use to food again.

Yeah, I know that thats what probably happened. It just freaked me out a little, since hes never done that before!
Hes not interested in his supers today either, so I think we are going back to normal now. He is still alert, happy, and kinda pudgey lookin, so thats good.

Yeah - I agree, he probably ate too much. Don't worry about it too much, just take it slowly.

He ate a worm yesterday, so thats good.
Im hoping it warms up soon around here... If I can get him outside in that natural sunlight, I think that would help snap him out of hibernating, if thats what is going on.
