Ducky - Sponsor
Ducky is our 5 year old, blue tongue skink. She came to us almost a year ago, when her previous owners living situation changed and there was no longer proper space for her. Ducky is very mellow and extremely food motivated. She has done a few events with us in the community to help educate and is such a pleasure to have.
Average adult skins measure 18 to 22 inches in length, and they make amazing pets and are great for kids because they are so easily handleable. They have smooth, shiny scales and firm bodies (unlike bearded dragons, iguanas, uromastyx and other pet lizard species that generally have softer skin), which makes them a bit easier to hold.
Blue tongues have tiny little legs and feet, so they aren’t going to go anywhere fast
Blue-tongued skinks are omnivorous, meaning they eat both plant matter and meat protein.
Sponsoring an animal here at Ashburn's is a big deal, and we're happy that you're considering it. To sponsor an animal means to help it stay happy and healthy on its journey to finding a "fur"-ever home! Your sponsorship donation will go towards the animal's daily care including feed, housing (like bedding), treats and enrichment, as well as veterinary care.
In addition, you get to become that animal's best friend! With your sponsorship, you will recieve a certificate of sponsorship with the animal's picture and autograph, opportunities to meet and interact with the animal, and high priority when registering for events at the farm!
