i didn't even know there was a "story section" lol, i have no problem adding it there, in fact i agree that it is a very touching story, but i think you should clear it with james... he may be too modest about having it up there, but if he gives it the green light, i will type up a friggin essay for you man...chapters and everything lol.

Do you mean Chuckie is about normal size?
I've been feeding him extra food and he's walking around my room now because everyone says the more room they have the bigger they grow and I'm trying to make him bigger! (I'm so pathetic :sad3: :nono: !) Maybe I have a dwarf lizard! Yes, that's what I'll tell myself to make myself feel better... I have a dwarf lizard :crazy: !

It sounds to me that the size is about what you would expect of a scincoides of that age.

I had a young guy once tell me his 6 month old scincoides was 35cm total length. After he explained to me that ever since he got it (as a juvie) that he had fed it every day of the week. Blueberries, blackberries, rasberies, any sort of berry, mango, everything, 7 days a week. No wonder it was 35cm long!!!! Grown to fast. Boy that cant be healthy for them!!!!
