Well i got home from college on friday, and went to drop off some stick insects for my god children, when we arrived i was approached by my mates next door neighbour and was asked if i would be interested in rehoming 2 corns and an iggy,
well we went in to have a look and assess there status, and their over all condition is ok apart from being underweight, they both came with vivs which have unguarded, bog standard household lightbulbs for heating, no thermostats and the uv was too high to allow the iggy to get any benefit from it.
the two corns were being housed together, with only a water bowl and a large cermic tube (way too big for them both) and nothing else, have now tubbed them on heat mats with 2 hides each.
below is pics of the iggy and his viv (4x3x2), the trellis, food dish, bulb guard and thermometer were added by me, im going to add another large log and a shelf up near the uv tube,

well we found out that the iggy is about 6 years old, he has perked up a bit, as he has now shed and is getting the benefits from the uv bulb and heat lamp and is eating a balanced diet, instead of lettuce, heres some upto date pics and of the finished viv,

that iggy has really changed, well done

he looks a lot happier and you can see by the colour of his spikes that he is improving, well done for taking him on, looks a little small for 6 years old, but that will be down to the conditions he was in
