1st vittata casualty


Was having a nosey through the glass and noticed a sling in the death curl ,

At first I was hoping it was another moult but alas it's the first casualty of my Vittata.

I like to think he was a boy so I could call him Frank Vittata .

Can only think it was stress related due to the postage and move to a new home as everything is fairly stable .

So I'm down to seven till the other pokies arrive

I'm so sorry, fingers crossed that the others thrive.

Sometimes you get a sling that is the runt of the litter and it fails to thrive. I have found no counter measures to boost it's strength and power.
