This week, we’re exploring the WHY behind why our Board of Directors got started with Archie’s Angels, so you can get to know the folks behind the rescue! 🐢

My “WHY” - Raija Hansen, President & Founder:

“In summer 2017, a Facebook post made its way across Wisconsin reptile groups, seeking to rehome a savannah monitor (Varanus exanthematicus). After an excessive number of tags, shares, and reposts, my mom and I reached out to the owner to see how we could help.

We welcomed Archie the Savannah Monitor into our home as soon as we could. Deemed "aggressive and non-handleable" by his previous home, I did not expect Archie to make a presence at outreach events through a local society at the time. A change in husbandry quickly moved Archie's demeanor for the better, revealing his true personality as a big, sociable lizard.

Inflicted with numerous health issues, Archie unfortunately met his early fate on March 24, 2018, having passed away in the loving embrace of our family. Only three years old at the time of his passing, this cut his life to a fraction of what it should have been.

When we first got Archie, he weighed a hefty 13 lbs, twice as much as his ideal weight. Due to a poor diet and inadequate space to exercise, he had no outlet to work off the excess fat. His body was forced to grow at an incredible rate, making him far larger than any other 3-year-old savannah monitor.

​Having been fed a strict diet of chicken gizzards for a majority of his life, Archie's poor eating habits ultimately ended his life. A necropsy was performed, indicating precisely what damage had been done.

Archie suffered from renal and visceral gout, a disease of the kidneys. This led to cardiovascular disease. His organs were surrounded by tophi (a deposit of crystalline uric acid and other substances at the surface of joints, in skin or cartilage) and excessive amounts of fat. This, topped with an underdeveloped immune system, all factored into why he passed at such a young age.

Savannah monitors are insectivores, meaning that their diet primarily consists of insect protein. Archie's previous owner fed him 10 lbs of chicken gizzards every week, and in turn, his body simply could not process that. Fat accumulated in large amounts, pushing organs up and forward. This made Archie's breathing labored and difficult for him to move.

Pictured here are two radiographs (x-rays) in the DV (dorsal-ventral) view; each animal is laying on their belly. On the left, we have Archie. On the right is Osiris, a savannah monitor of the same age as Archie upon his passing. The difference in diet is significant - whereas Archie was fed 10lbs of chicken gizzards per week by his previous home, Osiris has been given a steady diet of insects his entire life. The white portions on either side of the coelomic cavity ("abdomen") in these radiographs showcase the fat pads of a savannah monitor, most notable in Archie.

In memory of Archie, I started Archie’s Angels to use his story to educate about proper herpetological husbandry. Education is knowledge, and knowledge is the key to a happy animal. By properly informing others before they receive a new pet, we can prevent mistreatment and aid in the animal's happiness.

We want these animals to do more than just survive - we want them to thrive.”

This week, we’re exploring the WHY behind why our Board of Directors got started with Archie’s Angels, so you can get to know the folks behind the rescue! 🦎

MY “WHY” - Katrina Schlafer, Treasurer:

“The topic of getting reptiles for children can be sensitive. There are many factors that need to be considered for maximum success, health of the animal, and enjoyment for the child.

At Archie’s, we advocate for this decision being made with the parent understanding they will be the primary caregiver. In an ideal situation, the parent will be as excited if not more excited about the animal. This lends itself to lifelong care and love regardless of the child’s changes in interest (which are normal for growing, learning children).

As a child, I desperately wanted a reptile. Any reptile. I thought owning a reptile would be so cool. I saved up Christmas money and begged my parents to let me get one. I had $100. I imagined a scaly friend I could take with me around the house and sit and watch tv with.

Fast forward to the big box pet store. My money did not go far. I got a green anole and mesh arboreal enclosure kit. I was so excited. Little did I know, I unfortunately had not picked a pet that fit my expectations and imagination.

Green anoles are a very hands-off pet. They are territorial and do not like to be handled. They drop their tails when stressed. The crickets creeped me out. The mesh arboreal kit I got did not maintain humidity well.

These problems sapped the joy out of reptile ownership for me. I imagined a friend I could hold and hang out with. That is just not how green anoles are. She dropped her tail the second time I tried to hold her.

As I lost interest, my mother became the person who cared for my anole. She braved the crickets and did her best to keep my anole happy and healthy. Green anoles live 5 years on average. Mine passed away at the age of 2.

Why am I telling you this? This is my “why”. This is why I’ve dedicated myself to Archie’s Angels’ mission. Here’s why our mission could have prevented my situation as a kid:

1. MANAGING EXPECTATIONS

- ask your child what they’re imagining they’ll do with the pet they want. Are they imaging cuddling? Walks? Sitting on their shoulder? What size animal are they picturing?

- Compare the child’s thoughts with the animal they say they want. See if those ideas mesh. In my situation, my parents would’ve found out quickly that green anoles are far from cuddly.

2. RESEARCH (by parent and child)

- if you’ve found that the animal your child wants matches with their desired traits, it’s time to research in depth. Compare multiple sources. Find husbandry information, lifespan, recommended enclosure types and sizes, diet, and supplement needs.

- Find an exotic vet near you.

- A hard question to consider is the lifespan of the animal. Most reptiles will live 15+ years. With college attendance being at age 18, this leaves a big gap. Where will the animal go during this time? This is where the parent loving the animal and being as excited about it comes in. The animal will always have a place to be and a loving friend regardless of the child’s college plans.

3. COST ANALYSIS

- what is the startup cost to get this animal?

- How much is an office visit with my local exotic vet? Are you willing to pay that expense for a yearly visit?

- What is the recurring cost for this animal? That includes food, supplements, light bulbs, heat bulbs, yearly checkups, etc.

4. FAMILY MEETING

- now that you’ve got all the data, sit down with your child and discuss it. If they’re old enough to save up for the startup cost, discuss how much. Reiterate the animal’s traits, including lifespan.

5. CONSIDER ADOPTION!

- when you adopt a reptile, you’re helping a friend in need find a new home.

- You have the benefit of the rescue’s knowledge and resources for any questions you have!

- You can adopt an older animal! For example, baby bearded dragons can be a handful. They eat lots and lots of crickets every day and are very fragile. Older dragons eat bugs a few times a week.

It is important to acknowledge our mistakes and work to improve the future for other reptiles. Even though I was a child, I feel responsible for lacking the patience and knowledge to provide proper care for my anole. Knowledge and passion are the keys to successful reptile care. If I’d had a reptile I could hold, and watch tv with, I probably would have been more determined to feed it myself, research its care, and save up the extra money for the reptile I truly wanted.

Nysuuki was a green anole from a big box pet store. She was small and lived a short life. However, as an adult, she’s left a big impact on my life. I’m dedicated to preventing situations like hers and helping improve existing ones.

- Katrina S., Treasurer

Education is knowledge, and knowledge is the key to a happy animal.

Meet Oscar, our resident Bearded Dragon ambassador! 🐉

Oscar came into Archie’s Angels as a severe MBD case surrender. MBD, known as Metabolic Bone Disease is a condition caused from poor nutrition, low calcium and vitamins, and lack of UVB light. This is one of the most common conditions in reptiles and can and should be prevented by ensuring research on the diet and UVB light requirements for the specific animals you keep.

Why is MBD such a bad disease?

MBD can cause improper muscle and bone structure which leads to minimal muscle in the limbs, deformed skull and bone structures, increased bone fracture risks, potential defecation and urination issues, and difficulty with mobility.

In Oscar’s case, it has caused an extreme case of muscle and bones not forming properly. We fondly refer to this as Oscar’s ‘Peanut Butter Legs’ due to his legs being “mushy”, and unable to properly walk on them. Animals with severe MBD will need a lifetime of specialized care and support. This may include additional UVB and vitamins, and having to provide an enclosure that is more fall proof than a typical enclosure for the species. It is recommended to provide physical therapy as well to try to increase the little muscle that they have to help with basic movement and long term quality of life benefits.

If you are concerned your reptile may be showing signs of MBD, it’s important to get to a vet for evaluation. Not sure where to find an exotic vet? E-mail us at [email protected] for help finding an exotic vet near you!

*Please note there are photos of fresh sutures below, beware if you’re squeamish!*

This is Haydes the bearded dragon. He was relinquished to us from a private owner who loved him very much, and with a need to further pursue diagnostics & surgical options, we were contacted to take him in & see what we could do. His previous owner brought him into their exotic vet for routine care upon noticing an issue with his eye, leaving us with an extensive medical record to work from so we could get Haydes the care he needed.

On Friday, May 10th, Haydes was brought in to the Animal Hospital of De Pere to undergo physical examination & radiographs to review possible removal of a large, debilitating growth on the orbital region of his head. It was determined that the growth was within his orbital cavity & a globe was unable to be located at the time of the radiographs. Due to quality of life & confirmation that, without removal, this would lead to death, surgery was planned immediately.

Haydes underwent surgery to remove the growth at 1:30PM. The skin encapsulating the large growth was opened & the growth was observed to be a very large, fatty, non-vascular tumor. It was successfully removed at 2:00PM and Dr. Wolfe confirmed his globe could not be saved.

Surgery was successful and the remaining skin was trimmed down & sutured together. It was decided to allow a month for recovery before performing an additional set of radiographs to determine if a second surgery would be necessary.

Haydes awoke from anesthesia & continued to warm up & recover. Haydes was closely monitored visually & by live-view camera.
Recovery took a turn at approximately 5:30PM where breathing irregularities were observed. Our team began to work at stimulating respirations, ensuring airways were clean & open with intervals of holding the mouth agape whilst stimulating his toes with pressure to elicit a response.

At 6:00PM shallow breaths & pulse were no longer observed, so our team began to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This continued for 20 minutes with guidance from his veterinarian.

At 6:20PM, it was confirmed that Haydes was not able to be resuscitated & efforts were discontinued.

This has been a very large emotional hit on everyone involved. There was no moment that effort had not been at 100% to try and provide the highest chance of survival. We are all deeply saddened by this loss.

Recovery is the hardest part of the process for exotics. His foster team and Dr. Wolfe worked tirelessly through the night to monitor Haydes and ensure he maintained appropriate temperatures & hydration post-op. While stories like this are heartbreaking, it is important to showcase the not-so-pretty side of rescue. We are honored to have such an amazing medical team behind us; without them, we would not be able to provide the care we do. While Haydes' time was short with us, his story can inspire many to learn about amazing reptiles like him.

If you would like to support Haydes' story, Dr. Wolfe and her medical team, you can make a monetary donation to Animal Hospital of De Pere, mentioning Archie’s Angels, or donate directly through the Archie's Angels donation portal. Your support helps us provide care for animals like Haydes. As always, thank you from all of us at Archie's Angels.

It’s time for a fun-fact with Warrior the Sudan Plated Lizard!

A common misconception with Sudan Plated Lizards is that because of them being native to Africa they do not need high humidity. However, Africa is home to an incredibly wide range of habitats, not just the dry savannah desert people picture.

Plated Lizards thrive in an enclosure that can provide a range of humidity. One side should provide a lower humidity of 20-40%, while the other section of their home should replicate 50-80% humidity. This is due to their natural habitat being coastal woodland, thickets, and rocky areas. Average humidity for them should come out around 40-60% to provide ideal conditions for shedding! This range will vary slightly in the wild, and in captivity as well and we recommend monitoring with humidity probes and gauges.

Many of the rescued Plated Lizards we have encountered come to us with severely stuck shed from lack of humidity. This can lead to sores forming, as well as the loss of finger digits as seen in our rescued Plated Lizards we have seen come in. While we can not reverse the damage, we can prevent them from having further damage.

It is important to ensure proper humidity ranges for all reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates in your care to prevent health issues. We strongly recommend looking up the species you keep in Reptifiles, Savmon and other science and field research based sites to ensure a healthy, long life for your pets!

Keep an eye out on our page for the announcement when Warrior is available for adoption! 👀

Hank the Tank checking in! Hank is thriving in his new home. For those who have followed his story, Hank was quite the shy guy when he first arrived at Archie’s. Thanks to socialization efforts by his foster, he started to warm up to people.

Now, Hank is a total people person! His new family has helped him learn to trust people and he is now best buddies with them, even begging for shoulder rides and attention!

20/04/2024

Anna and Lara have been through a lot recovering from their respiratory infections. Their foster did an amazing job administering injectable antibiotics and tracking their improvement. They received the “all-clear” from Dr. Wolfe last month! These two have been together their whole lives and are being adopted out as a pair.

If you’re a veggie eater, these guys will love to snack with you! They’re wonderful laid-back companions.

Despite their names, please note they have both been identified as MALES upon visual inspection by our veterinarian. Please note their sexes are not DNA confirmed.

They are both at least a foot long and will need a large enclosure. The ideal home will have a secure summer enclosure outdoors and a large stock tank enclosure indoors (or similar size) for the rest of the season with appropriate heating and lighting.

Have a question? Drop it below or message us!

Vet update time! 👩‍⚕️

It's been pretty busy behind the scenes here at Archie's Angels. We've been working on a few things that we can't wait to share with you all - and as always, we appreciate your patience! Here are our February & March veterinary updates.

February's appointment was a small one - Hank had his final vet visit with Dr. Wolfe for wellness before heading off to his new home! He had just come out of brumation and we wanted to make sure he was on the right track of eating again. For those unfamiliar, brumation is a dormant period for reptiles that is very similar to hibernation in mammals. Their metabolism slows down to the bare minimum, allowing the animal to conserve energy in the cooler months, so activity and food intake slows dramatically! Brumation can happen naturally for some animals, and with so many unique backgrounds to each animal that comes into our care, some naturally go through this process on their own! With Hank feeling better than ever, he was welcomed into his forever home not long after his final wellness check.

March was pretty busy for Dr. Wolfe! Anna & Lara (the red foot & yellow foot tortoises) had another recheck. They have been undergoing treatment for a mild respiratory infection, then took a month of no medications to see if there has been any improvement. Their foster did an AMAZING job at administering injectable antibiotics, and we are happy to report that both tortoises are doing fantastic! Dr. Wolfe gave them the green flag for adoption. Because these two have been together for the last 12 years, we would like to ensure that they go to the same forever home together. Stay tuned for more information on adoption! (Shoutout to Jacob for the awesome hands-on help with wrangling these crazy tortoises for Dr. Wolfe's exams!)

Leo the ball python had a recheck as well! He came in as such a little guy and his foster Katrina has been doing an excellent job at helping him put on weight! His weight has doubled since his first intake. He's still pretty shy, but Leo is slowly coming out of his shell! Dr. Wolfe also gave him the green flag for adoption.

Beyond our rechecks, we had a few new faces for Dr. Wolfe in March.

Chrysanthemum (Chrissy) was in for a wellness after relinquishment. There were no concerns from the foster and Chrissy proved to be a super active and friendly gal! She did super well for her oral exam, too! It's important to check the oral cavity for any potential signs of respiratory infection or mouth rot. Reptiles are very good at hiding symptoms, so we want to make sure we catch anything before it becomes a problem. Chrissy's oral cavity was all clear, showing no signs of infection! Chrissy had undergone her quarantine period through us (which consists of a minimum of 30 days and approved veterinary clearance), then was adopted shortly after her wellness check. Her new home is happy to report that she is doing fantastic!

Warrior the plated lizard proved to be quite the stubborn guy. While he tolerated handling by Dr. Wolfe, he did not want to partake in his oral exam. Dr. Wolfe has her ways, though, as all veterinarians do! He provided a fresh f***l sample a few weeks prior to his scheduled appointment, so we dropped that off at Dr. Wolfe's office and she ran it through the lab for routine testing (something we like to do for everybody!). His f***l came back positive for pinworms, so his foster was sent home with some dewormer and a set schedule of when to administer it. He has a scheduled recheck in May so we can see if we need to do another round of dewormer!

Suma the leopard gecko had her wellness exam as well. She was full of personality for Dr. Wolfe and proved to be quite the social butterfly! She sat very nicely for the exam. There were no concerns noted by her foster or Dr. Wolfe, meaning she will be looking for her forever home soon!

As always, we appreciate your patience & support! Keep an eye out for updates! 🐍🦎

Let’s give a warm welcome to Leo the ball python! 👏

Leo is a male ball python with stunted growth. He is three years old but can fit in your cupped hands. He has made great strides to gain weight and is well on his way to gaining more. He’s the least picky ball python you’ll ever meet. He has never missed a meal for his foster! This month, Dr. Wolfe gave him the all clear to find a forever home.

The ideal adopter will have experience with calculating proper feeder size based on feeder weight and snake weight and sizing feeders up appropriately to help him gain weight.

Please note we will not speculate as to morph and breeders need not apply. Leo has been through a lot and we want him to have a home where he can relax and be himself. 🐍
