    Hi Guys/Gals,
    I just thought i would let you know about my new diamond!!
    I take my diamond to the vet to get her probed, check a few scars on her to make sure they are ok and healing well and to check for any other problems.

    1st the probing- its a big girl!!
    2nd check the scars- healing well just continue to treat with bedadine...
    3rd check the poop- Loaded with worms and parasites!!!

    Had to get an oral injection and a needle injection into the skin and have to go back in 2weeks for more!!!! I felt so bad for the gorgeous thing but im glad she is now in good hands!!

    Does anyone have any idea of a name for her?

    Nefertiti, an egyptian queen,

    You could look up a meaning for her nature as kandi said "bella means beautiful," or if she is a snappy snake you can call her CAB short for Cranky Arse Bitch (a friend told me that one), or something that you think explains her.

    My girls names are cleopatra, venus, sasha.
    My boys names are ramina, rajah, thor.
    I made up the name rajah as the god of snakes name was Ra so i came up with rajah.

    I hope she gets better soon and i wish you and her a happy recovery. =)

    Regards
    Cleo

    How about Bijou, pronounced beezshu.

    It is French for jewel and a Diamond is a jewel after all.

    Diamond... so colloquial jargon would dictate the name "ICE".

    hope all goes well with her mate she's a ripper !
    as for a name do a search for "reptile names" and have a look at the web site 20000 names.com you might find a name you like there.
    Cheers.
