Adopted another mastiff. They are slowly going to eat me out of house and home! Came to Animal Control weighing 50 pounds. Is now up to 90 and is still skin and bones. I'll be putting at least another 20-30 on him. Either Neo or Cane Corso.

I love seeing everyone’s other pets. My sister’s getting a house rabbit on Friday so looking forward to having a cuddle when we visit her. We’ve never had rabbits but I’ve always wanted one, we live in the countryside and they sneak into the garden and eat everything so dad was never keen!

I don’t have any photos on my iPad, I’ll try and get some from my phone later. We have a puppy who’s a black fluffy thing and 11 months old but a lot bigger than we expected him to be. It’s looking like he may end up Dalmatian sized weight wise and we were expecting border collie sized! Also I have a little old gerbil. He’s 3 and super friendly but too quick to catch on camera most of the time.

I might be getting an Australian Water dragon. One appeared on preloved for rehoming close to me for a reasonable price with vivarium and everything but I’m just unsure as I’d rather he was in a bigger one and it would probably be the end of the year by the time I had a larger one ready for him. So tempted though!

Meet Godzilla the hatchling G.Hyra Gecko ( I had to check my sources (Brown's Guide to Australian Geckos & Pygopods in Captivity) and believe it is a Gehyra dubia about a month at most old.
My wife was greeted by it on the kitchen stone benchtop late one night about a week ago , it scurried off to hide in a roach bait in the back corner of the benchtop and I coaxed it out and deposited it in a spare 600cc insect tub and gave it some baby mealworms and teenyweeny woodies which it ate in very short order.
It is about 40mm long and I've decided to make a pet of it while I study it and watch it grow as I'm curious to see what it looks like when fully grown .

The species is native to my local area and much of my region of Australia , and are nocturnal , so rarely seem by people.

My wife has started calling It Godzilla and I think the name somehow fits = it is a ferocious hunter. There is nothing wrong with it's appetite, it's eating 6 - 8 teenyweeny Woodies a night.

So far so good, it has settled in and seems quite relaxed (is eating , pooing , and quite active) in it's tub everynight after my wife goes to bed and turns off the lounge room and dining area lights.

I've ordered in some 4mm long crickets and some small BSFL to feed it when I run out of my limited supply of teenyweeny woodies. I'm also hatching about 1000 silkworm eggs from my stash and will feed most of these to Godzilla when they start hatching and are small enough .

Godzilla ontop his first hide - yes it's a permanent marker lid.
Seems to have to ability of changing the skink colour (to blend in ?).

On top his new house


Godzilla is very expressive with the tail wriggling , it's like the tail has life of it's own.
