Lady Vox is Sick

She was sleeping on the ground of her tank when I got home on Sunday. She never does that, she spends most of her time in the tree. She was breathing, and she moved a little - only a little.

She was still on the ground yesterday morning, but also still moving a little. I don't think she's eating. Or drinking.

By the time I got home late last night, she developed those post-orbital spots that Naggy had before he died. Because of where she is in the tank, I can't tell if she's breathing, but I can tell she's still alive by the color of her skin: dull green with brown splotches - a sign of stress. Naggy turned completely and beautifully green when he died, the natural color of a green anole.

I don't know what I can do for her, but I hope she can hold on today for me to get home. For some reason, I feel like she'll be ok if I'm there with her. You know finding a vet for a tiny lizard is near-impossible? I can only do what I can.
