Bobtail mothers progress

After coming into the refuge over a month ago  with a wound from a possible bush rat attack and the bobtail flu  mother reptile is now off all her medication and treatment and will be under observation for the next 2 weeks to make sure there is no sign of relapse.  Once we are happy with her progress and weight she will then be taken slowly off all heat  allowing her body to go into her natural shut down over winter and returned to the bush.

Her wound has healed beautifully.  For those who attended our training day on Wound Care and Managment this is the result you can expect using the techniques discussed on the day in regards to Reptile Management.

The baby reptile that was born at the Refuge has been named Rodney and we are hoping he will be staying permanetaly with us as an Education Animal under our Special Licence.
