Hello
Hope your monsters recovered and thriving again by now.
I don't mean to pry in your business, but what was the gila impacted with? hair,sand,wood,bones,dirt......? What was its primary diet (adult mice, rat pinks....)

Just curious since I'm still a rookie keeper and not sold on any of the mediums the pros reccomend besides newspaper and I hear ear after ear of crap from a veteran keeper about feeding hopper rats only to avoid hair impactions...I figure a more mature mouse has more vits built up than something young but as I observe my gilas its pretty obvious they'd rarely be fast enough to catch an adult mouse unless it was trapped in a burrow or something. My gilas seem to digest very thoroughly but I'm always curious of others experiences.

peace n
Happy herps
