snow enigma

So some of you may remember Pegleg, the snow eclipse enigma that was very thin and missing a hand when he came to me. Well this little dude has filled out (and nearly doubled in weight) and is looking great! He could still gain some weight I think, but he’s eating like a pig and has been cleared for parasites. Seeing Pegleg make such a great turn around is really a big part of why I enjoy keeping reptiles and animals in general. I love watching an animal grow, thrive, and explore it’s habitat knowing that I’m helping it live a good enriched life. 

*Please note that I do not support the breeding of any animals with neurological issues such as the enigma gene. This leo will be pet only and I urge you to think twice about buying an animal that expresses a gene linked to a neurological abnormality.

Here is the Mack Snow Eclipse Enigma pity purchase that I got for cheap. You can clearly see in the second and third photos his stumpy leg. I was told by the vendor that he had received the animal that way and the previous owner said the foot had been bitten off by another leo. He seems to be a sexually mature male so perhaps it was during mating? Who knows. It’s fully healed, although fairly squishy and odd. Besides that his enigma syndrome is not bad; he circles if he’s stressed out but I think his body condition will rebound quickly. He wasn’t interested in mealies or supers, but the moment I brought out the grub pie he ate it, so that’s good! He’ll be treated for internal parasites, and fattened up ASAP.
