This is bones my rescue with mbd , I rescued him on March 24 2020. He was in horrible shape and about to pass away . I spent hours everyday force syringe feeding him and trying to get the stuck shed off his deformed limbs . He was so fragile and so weak he would fall asleep while eating and I had to rub his throat for him to swallow . He lost a lot of toes and his body will forever be deformed but he is my beautiful boy! He eats and drinks all on his own now after weeks of syringe feeding I finally got him to eat a mealworm and from there he started running and catching crickets on his own ! If any of you end up rescuing a Leo or another reptile with MBD I’m more than willing to help, I did so much research and couldn’t find barely anything . He is thriving now and a inspiration to me :) his name is bones like the character in Mario cart . First photos are of him extremely sick and thin he changed colors too and got super bright 5D8970AD-F21E-499B-AABE-E080B10CBA8E.jpeg886A1578-3476-408E-8D99-2C2F934717E7.jpegAED2AA54-A9B7-4C07-9354-40928A264E81.jpegF63F2694-226E-47EB-AB77-2370D48E7652.jpeg4F37DBFB-0EF0-4295-BFA2-1419788C0DDA.jpeg4B83B899-1C8C-46B5-9399-7672BEDCF28D.jpegD89634B8-DF80-4CF0-AD11-B96DF838E020.jpegD92B05FA-E025-41D8-AA07-666362F453D4.jpeg20F9A6DD-B786-46F7-B351-CE38A5E82C85.jpegA2DA250A-B92A-45C4-BA0E-8E82A0142333.jpeg

Wow! That is truly amazing! You're a hero to that little guy!
Thank you so much, it was definitely hard and he was mad at me for a while for annoying him everyday he was especially mad for me always touching his toes because they were so sore from having so much stuck shed . He’s still got to fatten up his tail But he’s much better now and I’m posting to hopefully be able to help someone else that needs it :)
