I don't have any pics. We started him on Fluckers First Aid and that with daily baths are helping. He is so thin and there is no fat stored in his tail that you can see the bones on top of the tail. He is down to 325 grams, so he lost over 50% of his body weight in the past 3 months, and was continuing to loose weight. He just would not eat anything we tried. With the First Aid which is full of vitamins and protien, etc. he started to pee and poop again. Yeah! We also have not gotten a few super worms in his mouth (they were his favorite) and he did swallow them! Yesterday he ate two rasberries on his own, which is really a good sign. He is still too skinny to go into brumation right now. If he can start to put on some weight before winter sets in he may be OK. It is going to be a rough winter for him.
