Day One

This morning I found that Ash was shedding and seemed very itchy and agitated.

I read that a warm bath can help soothe the discomfort so we gave it a try. It worked really well. Ash had a little breakfast and then settled in for some napping and basking.

The thing that attracted me to Ash over the other babies that were available was that Ash seemed very interested in people. The others were somewhat indifferent. I have discovered that Ash really likes being held and will climb on my hand at almost every opportunity and then wants to stay there.

We tried some beardie salad for dinner – butternut squash and collard greens. Ash ate some but liked the crickets much better. Ash standing in a bowl of squash and greens.
