he's on the left hand side of the wood, u can see his head quite clearly if u look close enough, snuggled into the woodchip.

he's a bit shy at the moment but he'll soon get used to us :D

Looking undernaeth he seems to only have one bulge, so he may actually be she but when he is getting bigger i will have them both probed properly to see what I have got :D

yeh the viv should be coming someetime soon, though im having second thoughts about putting him into it now because of the size of him :p thought he mightve been a little bit bigger so i think i'll wait til he's got slightly bigger, though the viv is a birthday present so my mum wanted it here anyway for me.

My boyfriend thinks im crazy getting another animal, never mind a bosc but he didnt shout, think he's got used to me getting them now lol.

and 2 boscs isnt greedy :p i'd happily get another :D

that wood chip is far from idea (unless you plan feeding him out of the viv) he would be far better off with a peat and sand mix so he can have a good dig around, if he swallowns a piece of that wood you could be back down to 1 bosc :(

sterile soil is great for them, they natrally dig and it keeps them fir if you chuck a hand full of morio worms in for them to dig up and eat !

Well i just got my new viv, when i put it together I will move him to soil. My mum doesnt want me to mess up the viv he is in temperarily :p.

he'll be fed out of the viv for now, i have a food dish for him though but anything wet like pinkies or egg will be fed out of it cuz i know what woodchip are like for sticking to it.
