    Re: Frank - The Blue Tongue Skink

    I tried a new food for Frank.

    https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcos...-flavored-food

    It's freeze dried and smells terrible (so I figured Frank would love it), but also has a resealable and small bag and should last a little longer than the big bag of regular dried food.

    Frank did really like it, but even though I soaked it, the pieces were a little big (I broke a few of the larger ones) and kind of dry inside. I plan to crush or cut into smaller pieces and soak longer and I think it will be a success.

    At first he didn't know what to make of chewing them!

    Re: Frank - The Blue Tongue Skink

    A couple of updates on Frank.

    First, he ultimately was not a big fan of the freeze dried ferret food. Even when I broke it up more, I don't think he liked the consistency. So, I went back to the normal ferret pellets (dry then soaked in water) with his veggies and fruit and an occasional canned or live insect.

    Secondly, he started brumating a few weeks ago. He hasn't eaten much at all, but I still offer weekly now, not more. He's also hiding most of the time and occasionally will come out to drink and he's had a few urines in the past few weeks and only one poop.

    He did this last year as well and it's normal as they mature for this to happen. I let him do it and do not force the issue either by bothering him too much or adjusting temps to encourage it.

    Frank Shed. Thought I would share. He's looking dapper.

    Re: Frank - The Blue Tongue Skink

    Frank shed and since then has been picking at his food weekly. He's not as hungry as in the summer, but he's slowed down, but not officially brumating yet.

    I got a cute video of Frank drinking today.
