We just returned from vacation to find Beta, one of our Rankins clutch from 2007 had passed away suddenly. Our lizard sitter said he was alive and well yesterday when she called in. This is a very sad ending to what had been a fantastic few days away.

Rest is peace sweetheart. You are with your Mum and brother now. We will always remember you with love and affection.

Mark, Jo and Sam

Thank you Sam.

This has been a horrible year for us. Every one we lost has been without warning or any signs of illness. I suppose that's a good thing in some respects, but it makes me feel helpless because there's nothing I could do to help them :( :(

Rankins are quite scarce over here in the States right now, so it really hurts to lose one.

All the best,
Mark

Its been an unusual night tonight, ive thought about many things and wondered what your lizards looked like and how they where kept when i stumbled upon your early photos in the photos section TLB and I found my way to your website....

Its taken me a bit to get through the page and I can honestly say im thrilled, upset and happy all at one time, each story for each lizard has made me feel "moved" (especially darel and spot).

You don't by any chance have the folowing image in as big/high quality as you can do you?

My heart goes out to you and your family for all your losses!
