Can you identify these please!

Post by Paulapoo » 19 Aug 2019, 12:59

Hi I’m Paula, I have recently rescued these guys and could you possibly tell us what breed they could be.

I’m friends with bex and she is advising and that your the best for advice!

I am aware of there nails and beams and will get them vet checked ASAP, but until then would like to know what breed

Hi guys, just to let u know these guys r approx 5 and have been kept in a 3 ft Vivarium all there lives! They haven't been out I don't think, the lady didn't even want them in the 1st place so glad Paula saw them!

They didn't have the appropriate heat lamp, uv, substrate, food etc but now they will etc... Paula is seeing to that as I type!

Once we know what they r we can make sure they live happy healthy lives :)

Thanx x

Hi Paula (and Bex, who we must thank for the recommendation)
This is a lovely couple of Horsfields (note only one 'e' in that spelling - :lol:
They could do with a bit of a beak trim but wow, thank you Paula for finding these and taking over their care. I am pretty sure that under Bex's wing they will do great in your hands.
If theres anything we can help with just give us a shout Paula.

Thank you Lin! Can you sex them if we send pics plz?

I have sent Paula the care sheet to read through and they are in very safe hands now 8-) the smaller seems to be more dominant, should we split them or see how they go?

Thanx x

I would see how they go Bex. The more room and hiding places available for them will give then a good chance of escape and to sort their differences, so to speak.
Yes, send in photos for sexing and we will do our best.
