I haven't written much about the lizards lately. They are pretty low maintenance animals, and Andreas has been heavily molting and therefore spending more time than usual in his hut. Days went by where I didn't see him, but I knew he was alive because food was missing!

Elsa is also doing some molting. I tried to get some pictures of her head, but she didn't want to stay still for the camera, so they were blurry. Above is a picture of her -- completely relaxed, with her head under the log. Look at her arms lounging next to her body!

Here she is again, but a view of her head. You can see some excess skin hanging there. After taking these pictures, we helped her remove the excess skin from around her face!
The parrots are now used to the lizards. In the beginning, Beeps was scared of them and Rocky liked to go to Elsa's cage and tap on the glass, scaring her. Rocky has not done this for over a month now, even though his cage is right next to hers. I think they realize they're not a threat in any way!
