Hey guys, just had a rescue dragon dropped off to me, she looks fairly healthy, accept for the fact she has 4 inch long nails, is just coming out of a shed, has a few bits still hanging off her face so will give her a bath soon, she is okay with being handled, but did let out a little bit of a hiss when i was trying to get the temperatures right in the viv, but was fine after i gave her a little bit of salad and some live food.
She did go for a poop about 30 ins after she got settle into her new viv, and i have to admit im not exactly happy about it, it was very large, the urate was a normal size but the poo was almost like she had diarrhea, so i might have to get a fecal test done if it doesn't get any better with her change of diet, she was being fed on iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and dried flower petal's, she gets fed live food once every two weeks, which will change to 2x a week, and the veg with switch to spring greens and dandelion greens with the occasional treat, will upload a picture of her later and a close up of how her claws look, she is loving the 3.5ft viv, rampaged around it as soon as she was popped in ^_^

i would love to sit and cuddle her if she wasnt such a stroppy moo haha she is lovely though, dont think shes used to having the viv at the correct temp though because she's hid at the cool end, and when i saw her at the guys house, her tank was 87.2 at the hot end, so i think the temp change is bit of a shock to her, she'll get used to it soon though

I wouldn't worry about her poo yet, it was almost certainly diet caused. Iceberg is practically 100% water and so her system was just running it straight through. A couple of weeks on 2~3 feeds of live food per week should sort that out nicely, but a fecal float wouldn't be a bad idea anyway.

Didnt think about weighing her ^_^ good idea, might have to keep that at a track record, atleast i can find out how overweight she is, will measure her too :)

she is a beauty, looks better in person than in pics, plus my camera is pretty crap, its on like a £20 phone lol but her marking go very distinctive when she has been basking :) she gets dark lines appear all over her that almost glow, and she was out for 30 mins today, storming around the bedroom floor like she owned the place haha i think she may have some eye problems though, because she doesnt seem to notice things so easily as other dragons, she see's me move around the room easily enough and she see's her live food perfectly fine, its either she is very unobservant or she is partially sighted :/ will get the vets to check her when i take her in

Great news, she has really warmed up to me, she even fell asleep on my chest tonight with in 5 mins of me putting her there, although she did hiss and black beard when i put her back in the viv to go to sleep half hour before lights out lol grumpy little moo haha

Sorry for it being blurry but you can get the gist of what her claws look like, and that after they have been clipped
