Leonard gave me fits a few weeks ago. I fed him and while he was yawning to realign his jaws, I saw what looked like black smears on both the top and bottom interior of his mouth. So, because I am a panicky boa constrictor owner, I dragged his still-tiny snakey self in to see DocRock the next available appointment.
And let me state now, if you haven't already figured it out, but I am an idiot. The "smear" I saw on the bottom of his mouth was his tongue, and the one on the top?
A freaking shadow. Yes, boys and girls, I am a complete genius. But $21.00 later at least I'm not panicked.
I've also upped Leonard, at DocRock's behest, to 2 ROAASes* every other week, with a single ROAAS on the weeks in between. It seems the little critter is growing. I'll weigh him tonight and edit this entry with the results.
Weight edit (I'm a little late -- it's Monday, 8/26 now): 115 grams!

*Rodents Of An Appropriate Size -- yes, I'm still trying to ignore the facts about what I feed my damned pets :P
