 Gordo update!

I stopped tube feeding Gordo on the 24th. He has had antibiotic injections every three days since the beginning of the month. He has been back to normal uro behavior for the past few days. He wakes up an hour after lights go on.. he runs, basks, runs some more, basks some more.. he does this all day and slows down around 6pm and then goes into his hide about 30 minutes before lights out. He did not eat for the first few days but I did see him eat a few bites yesterday. Things are finally looking up. I will post a few pictures as soon as I can get to my pc.

 Gordo update!

Gordo is getting better every day. He eats now.. and even poops every other day or so. I am hoping that the eating and pooping keeps increasing as they days go on. I have been sprinkling everything I feed him with mazuri tortoise pellet dust trying to get some extra nutrients and fiber into him.

I promised pictures as soon as I could get them. It has been very hard to get a decent picture of him. If hes awake... hes running! Here are a few that I got of him the other day.
