Oh holy crap. I am so sorry, really. I don't think any of us thought he was as bad as it looks like he was. I know I didn't. Stuff like this makes it hard to give advice, really.

Unfortunate update

woke up to Tucker totally stiff and lifeless, not even soaking him did anything; im pretty sure he's dead. I want to wait at least 24 hours before deciding, but im fairly certain he is gone.. :(

I'm so very sorry. Sometimes this happens, and there was nothing you could have done to save it.

There's a good chance this baby was not started correctly. I would suggest that next time, you get one directly from a breeder on this forum, and avoid the heartache you're suffering now.

I'm so sorry. I would have responded sooner the site has not been sending me notifications. this imo was not mbd not at that stage and size. I hate to say it was related to the bumps but most likely was. and if so was not your fault. again I'm so sorry for your loss.
