Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and Reptile Rescue.

Please pinch the back foot and see if the Dragon tries to pull away from you or moves the leg.

That's it?
Expert:  Joan replied 11 months ago.

Right now we have to see if the Dragon is alive. Once we know we can do some first aid.

Expert:  Joan replied 11 months ago.

I am standing by for an answer on response. Then we can start to help the Dragon.

He's dead
Expert:  Joan replied 11 months ago.

I am so sorry! That is what I asked you to try it before we did a lot of work to aid him. I am afraid the drastic temperature shocked the system and shut down the heart.

Please accept my condolences
