    Damn what happened to the poor fella? Either way you've done a phenomenon job, he/she looks as healthy as a lacie can look :)

    Where's he going Richard?
     
  11. Off to Brissy, mate, with an experienced reptile handler as part of a reptile educational display. I'm sure he'll get plenty of "quiet time" too:).

    Richard, what's going on in pic 2 and 3? Force feeding, or something else?

    Love the last photo. He looks wide-eyed and alert.
     
  13. Spot on, Nick, though it looks more brutal than it actually was. He wanted the food item but it kept dropping from his dislocated lower jaw, so I had to place the item further to the back of the throat. A few days of this and he was taking small rodents on his own.

    Thanks, he's done well, all considering. An unforgettable experience and a real testament to just how amazingly strong willed and tough Lacies are. But I'm sure I don't need to tell you that:)!

    Just makes me love em more.

    Yeah, what he said! :) Flicker is looking like a girl, at this stage. Could still develop the secondary sexual characteristics of a male, but at this stage 'her' head is saying "female".

    Loving all the picture's everyone! Haven't been through the whole thread :s
    Anyone got any indoor setup's for full grown spencer's?
    Is a 6x2x2 big enough to keep 3 adult ackie's in?

    It would need to be big, lot's of floor space. I have my Panoptes pair (similar sized monitor) in a 3.0x1.5x1.5 with just over a tonne of sand in it at a depth of about 300mm. Ideally I'd love to give them more room.

    Yes.
