Every centimeter on this horribly abused bearded dragon is
nothing but skin & bone; for one who loves rep's, this was
very disturbing to come across! He had no heat source, no
water & the only food I saw in his tank was f*cking POPCORN!
So I did what I had to do, and stole him; right in front of
a group of peeps & ya know what? Not a single one of them
noticed the pathetic lil' critter I was holding with my hand
upon my shoulder.
Not sure he will make it thru, so we have tentatively named
him/her "Saved". He is so weak he can't support himself, &
his jaw is so soft, he can't eat. It makes me angry & ill!
I have fed him 6 of the soft square bites made for beardies,
squishing them between my fingers to make them soft & then
opening his mouth as I gently put the bites in. I attempted
to give him 2 more bites earlier today, but I ended up taking
them out, as he did not seem to have eaten the bites I had
already given him. (I discovered this to my horror as I could
see down his throat as I opened his soft jaw!)
Sooo, I dunno if popcorn has become impacted & he cannot eat,
or if he's just so far emaciated that there is nothing I can
do for him at this point, but try to make him comfortable..
Ugh! HELP! I'm open to any suggestions!!
Thanx & please say a prayer for Saved!!
