    Others may be able to offer more positive advice, but personally i would cull it.

    It has full fuction of its toes and legs, im thinking this will become my indoor pet. But I just want to help it. Even if i have to carry it around. Just wondering if anyone has advice besides slaughtering it. I seems sensless to me to kill something because its not the same as the others.

    i was told that this condition is the result of hatching without enough moisture and my experience is that it wont get better
