Good i’m pleased, you had me worried there for a minute.

You shouldn’t intrduce a new reptile to another until it’s had a cool down period. Quarentine (sp?)

with cats and dogs and other "normal" pets - you can usually tell if they’re ill, or at least that there’s something wrong with them. Reptiles HIDE their illness, it’s so they don’t get picked off in the wild for looking like an easy kill. My last WD Killer, died in a matter of days :( Thursday morning he looked and acted normal, Thurdsay evening I come home from work and I realise there was something VERY wrong, Friday i get him to the vets and start medication, but sunday evening he was gone.

sorry for the essay, but I’m just trying to explain why it’s so important to keep them separated to begin with.

TD.x.
