Just an update - the monitor (nicknamed "Stumpy") is ready for release! The vet said that his leg healed up really well, and though there is a pretty big scar he uses it fine to climb and such. I will note, the toes on his injured foot don't splay as well as the toes on the other foot, but I find him stuck to the walls of his enclosure often enough not to worry.
I moved him to the bigger enclosure when his bandage came off, and I'm going to hide a bunch of pinky mice around it as a last meal/treat to get him back into foraging.
I've had some really good advise here, and found the experience really, really rewarding. Thanks everyone who helped calm my nerves and gave me excellent advise that allowed me to experience this excellent animal, and do my best to get him better!
(I'm just so excited I had to share!)
That's awesome news, great work.
Awsome news. Well done.
Nice work!! Older mice with more mass/ fibre/ nutrients might be better than pinkies though
