Thanks to you and your BF. Hope he is doing fine. I am learning to use my prosthetic leg and arm so hopefully I won't depend on the chair as much.
I hope that you will be able again to walk with your prosthetic leg. :) I wish you all the best.

I can't get over how lucky it was the way it worked out. Did Opo have any marks or scrapes or anything from his ordeal?

How much does he weigh?

Wow, I'm not sure how he would've fit in there. The marks on his plastron look normal to me.

The pencil is a little low. Do you see the nick above and the small separation running vertical above the pencil? Does that separation look alright there is no drainage coming from it?

I think that looks normal. Any other sulcata owners able to offer an opinion?

I'm glad you got him back, what a wild story. Is the rabbit cage locked? Do you think it's possible someone found him close by and saw the rabbit cage and just put him in there thinking that's where he lived?

There is only 5 houses on my street and I talked with them all. My neighbor who found him has a son but at this moment he is bed ridden with lyme disease. It is a crazy mystery. The only thing that might make sense. We have wild rabbits and now and then Opo might enjoy a rabbit pellet. Also Opo will smell something in the yard. He will keep poking his nose in the ground and then scrape his front legs a few times and then his back legs and then will circle around and do it again. I am thinking maybe he smelled the rabbit pen and maybe where the corner gap is he forced his way thru maybe lifting the fence enough to get thru. But not sure he would be strong enough to do that.

Is it better to post pics in thumbnail or full image. Those were full image?
Full image works fine - when you choose thumbnail it puts a smaller preview that you can then click on to view the full thing

I was wondering because sometimes when I click on a pic on a thread it will be super exploded. Wasn't sure if mine did that.
