    Runt loves to soak !

    I mist down his enclosure once a day , and like to soak him at least once a week ! It helps his shedding quite a bit and he seems to like it ! I even put the top on so it is like a little steam room !

    Maybe a dumb question ?

    Speedy has been eating Mazuri pellets since we have had him , and I have always soaked them . Recently I have tried feeding him the pellets dry. The first time I gave him one and watched as he bit it into hunks and munched it down. I thought "cool , he even gets to wear his beak down a little !"...

    Crazy idea or not ?

    In my never ending quest to keep Speedy from pyramiding , I bought this little "electric simmering pot" . It is supposed to be used for scents in your house.
