    I just rescued this blue tongue and need to know what type it is to give the proper humidity. We were told it is female and that it was born this way. It looks like mbd to me. I've been giving calcium soaks and there is a mvb for her basking site.
    She is very shy and doesn't like handling at all compared to my merauke.

    So you think she has mbd? That's not good. Does she have a hard time walking? Do her legs look almost broken or frail? I am not an expert by no means, but I am not sure how good the calcium soaks will be. YOu might just be wasting the calcium. I would just make sure to supplement her foods with the proper calcium and vitamins.

    Also, for the bulb, make sure its UVB. I am not sure what an MVB bulb is.
    How is her appetite? Is she eating?
