    Dianna & I went to one of the local Petcos last night & were shocked by what we found! Baby INDOS and larger ruggies, too! We haven' seen Indos at Petco in about a year. And larger sized rugs have been hard to find, too!

    One of the Indos I brought home is in DREADFUL shape! He/she has only ONE walking leg & a BP. He/she is missing both legs & the feeder pincher on one side. I am encouraged that this poor baby can live though ~ he/she has the BIGGEST gel limbs I have ever seen! Apparently he didn't recently drop these limbs, because the gel limbs are so large, he looks ready to molt very soon. I really don't have any idea how this poor thing has survived this long! How does it eat and drink? He can't use his BP to eat, because he has no other way to support himself!

    I offered him some honey & cuttlebone, but he wasn't interested. He is now trying desperately to dig down, but I would expect a semi-surface molt at best. I have no idea if this poor thing will be able to molt at all, but what a victory it would be if it could!

    And so, I have name this poor pity-buy of mine, "Victory". When it is well enough to sex, he/she will either be called Vic or Vicky for short. This is the only picture I could get, without adding stress. You obviously can't see the gel limbs in the pic, but believe me...they are HUGE!

    And I also came home with a apparently healthy baby Indo. This is the only boy of my Indos, so I am wondering what my Indo girls will say.

    "Dazzle" is so named for his dazzling coloring. The right 1/2 of him is normal Indo purple. But from his BP over, he is a dazzling array of bright pinks & purples:

    And three ruggies came home as well. All three are males. Two are smalls, and one is a teenie.

    "Opie", so named because of the shad of red he is~~~
