Sayonara Clayton

After much deliberation, I decided that being a full-time mommy and pet owner to 4 lizards was too much. So I started looking for people who I could trust to give a few of my cold-blooded babies a good home.

A couple weeks ago I met a friend through another reptile forum and decided that he would be a good new papa for Clayton. So I packaged Clayton in a sock in a padded box and shipped him of to Minnasota.

He is now co-habitating with Lily, another collared lizard, and he also might be a papa. I am still waiting for confirmation from Clayton's new owner.

It was really hard to let him go, but I think it was the best for both of us. Someday when Thomas is older we will have another pair or more of collared lizards.

Liz... I'm sorry you had to part with one of your babies, but at least you made the right choice & found him a good home! AND... with him being in "Minn-e-snow-ta" j/k Minnesota maybe I can go see him for you! ( Hey I tried )

Cool

Tough decision to make, but I know that you gave it a lot of thought before you made a move. Doesn't keep you from being sad though.

Will his new family send you pix so you can see him in his new home?

Clayton's new owner doesn't have a digital, but has friends who do. So eventually I will probably see pictures of him. I know that he is being treated very well.
