Aww, he's so cute, I love his little piggy nose! And it's sweet that you're helping the little guy out. It's very responsible to help the guy, as he was hurt flying into your human thing that they don't know about or how to avoid.

Have you spoken with your local wildlife rescue? Some of them will just put them to sleep, and some will rehabilitate them, or help you do so. It's also illegal in many states to keep wild animals like that- of course, I would do the same thing in your situation, but I wouldn't want you to get in trouble.

Also, I noticed you're using gloves, good stuff. They can def carry rabies, and shouldn't be handled with bare hands.

Sorry, I'm sure you've already done research and know all this stuff. Just putting in my two cents anyway. Best of luck and keep up with the updates!

Thanx willow!!.These will probly be the last pics of him. He is eating more crickets than my convicts Tonight I'm letting him go. He looks like he has put on a few grams of weight too.

I tried to snap the photo when he took the cricket, but he snatches it off the tweezers very fast so all I got was him chewing.

This is after he ate 4 more crickets today & getting FAT. :)
