Our loveable leguaan, Lazarus
First of all, we would like to say a massive THANK YOU for supporting our loveable leguaan at DAKTARI.
Although we did not reach our target of $300 for this micro-project, the money that you have donated will go a long way towards Lazarus' food and care.
Lazarus is eating well and is enjoying the warmer weather now that summer is on the way. He has also been attracting the interest of another leguaan who has been spotted around his enclosure. A potential love-story?
We had yet another leguaan with us recently who had been hit by a car. After a few weeks at DAKTARI, he was back to full strength and we were able to release him along with a beautiful Pearl-Spotted Owlet.
Due to the injuries that Lazarus sustained before coming to DAKTARI which resulted in the loss of his claws, it is unlikely that Lazarus would be able to survive in the wild, but he has a comfortable life with us and we work hard to keep him happy.
Thank you again for your kindness and consideration towards Lazarus and to the work that we do here at DAKTARI. Without the support of people like you, it would be impossible for us to provide a safe haven for the many injured and orphaned animals in our care.
Love from Michele, Ian and all at DAKTARI.
A potential love-interest for Lazarus?
