    Eye prob....pls help!

    If you just got the wee guy on Wed. Id think its likely still adjusting to its environment was it Shipped to you? or did you pick it up from its previous owner? shipping stresses the animal a bit more in the end and could make it take some extra time to "come out of its shell" so to speak.

    Names ?

    My young Sulcata's name FredRick was chosen by my fiance.. as he was a birthday present for her. The spelled FredRick (rather then Frederick ) is more of a joke and to be different. Freddy is what we end up callin him now anyways ;)
