    Thanks for the advice, I'll remove the bone today. Necrosis is like rotting/infection right? It just looks like a stump! No drainage or anything, last week he did bleed just a little though, nothing huge. I probably won't be able to get him x-rayed though.
    I couldn't do anything about the arm, I don't think he would tolerate any kind of splint and even if I tried to splint it he would probably just get more stressed.

    I'd see if you could somehow suture it. I don't what what kind of thread you'd need, but that would probably speed up the healing process. If you do leave a small hole because theres bound to be drainage from the damaged tissue. Let me know how the amputation goes! The best way I can think of to get an x-ray would be to ask a local vet to take one. Even if they aren't an exotic vet, you might be able to convince them just to get you some x-rays. I don't know if that would be too expensive though. Keep and eye for any sores on the arm.

    Awesome, thanks! I took the bone off with no problem. It didn't bleed at all. Some vets do help wild animals for free as well. He came out of his hide today! I'm going to look at the local vet's website and see if they can help. I don't know how they'd get him to be still during the x ray.

    Not yet, just a couple more weeks now! The bone being gone doesn't seem to bother him at all. He's exploring his habitat more too.

    Yeah, I couldn't get her to eat this morning. Maybe she isn't hungry?

    I think she's getting used to the tank and surroundings, she engulfed a large mealworm and a huge fat waxworm today!

    It looks really good today. She’s using it to limp around, she still looks pretty funny when she walks though
