Richard's enclosure in the context of our apartment

It IS possible to have an enclosure that enhances the look of your home. :-)
(For the most part)

I dug up this old photo of Richard. :-)

Richard is no longer wearing his brace. His bone has healed, but he has a new problem... Somehow, he managed to develop an abscess, which caused some swelling in his hand. He is on Baytril and expected to make a decent recovery.

"4 to 6 weeks" is a looooong time.

Richard went to the vet a few days ago to have his arm checked out. The wrist was swollen, and Richard had trouble getting around, although it didn't slow his pace.

Our vet suspected a break and x-rayed Richard for us, free of charge. It turned out that Richard's ulna was broken, near the wrist.

We couldn't understand why he performed the x-ray for free, but we thought it was very nice of him.

Richard will be wearing this brace for 4 to 6 weeks, and we must return weekly to have it changed since Richard spends a lot of time in water. He has been trying to remove it, to no avail.

We're hoping for a speedy recovery. It's not nice to see him having trouble getting around, even though his pace hasn't slowed.

We've been away

Well, it's mostly that I've been lazy about taking pictures of Richard. He's in his no-longer-cute phase. Don't get me wrong: I think he's still beautiful. I just don't think adult lizards are most people's definition of "cute." :o)

This is Richard's most recent photo. He's sitting underneath the fogger of his enclosure.

"Mama's legs. Comfy."

"Do you mind?"
