hi everyone and thankyou for your lovely comments. i got bernard 4 years ago. he was suposed to be 1 year old, i foloowed all the advice from the very knowledgeable shop owner. so he lived for 3 years in a viv eating bags of salad, cooked frozen veg and occassional dandylions. then i got a comp and somehow found my way onto all these great forums!!
stevie i have only had a few weeks, he was bought into a petshop but it was discovered he had no eyes so he spent the next 6 months in a viv at the vets, we are getting there very slowly and although things are not brilliant with him they are loads better than when i first got him. he is supposed to be about 2 years.
they are so lovely and so addictive, i am nearly finished building new enclosures in my garden so i can have more:2thumb:
bernard has one on the other side to match. he looks like he has horns!:devil:
i havent met another bernard yet and am real excited to find one. do you have any pics? what made you call him bernard?
my bernard was a rescue along with his wife dorris. we havent changed his name but occasionaly he gets called borris when my OH cant figure out who is who. this is the only pic of dorris(left) and bernard (right) that i have on this computer. will see if i can get on the other one tomorow.
they are both lovely. how old are they do you know there weights measurements etc? doris is not very bumpy, i wish i had done better for bernard and got him smoother, but we all learn by our mistakes.
