Hi,

The monitor has perked up immensely.
He was subjected to soaks twice a day just until I could see that enough shed was off that I didn't have to worry about his tail or toes being subjected to tissue death.
He is now being left the hell alone

He is basking/hiding now, when before he'd basically stick his nose down and stay where he was put.

He is also eating quite voraciously. He defecated several times in the first few days, I am betting it was old food that hadn't been digested due to ridiculously low temperatures before; as he hadn't seen food for a while up until I picked him up.

While I have grown to like this guy, I harbor no illusions- considering his sucky start to life, I'm sure he's got internal damage or will be more susceptible to issues down the road.

Right now, however, he seems as content as is possible under the circumstances. I base that assumption on the fact that he's basking, eating, hiding, and being a hissy jerk- all good signs, in my opinion.

Thanks for asking!
