Dark days for the little prince

His new skin has turned dark

...especially from the back view.

He lost a foot in the shed somehow. This by itself is not really too serious. In fact, it's possible that he could at least grow a partial foot with his next and final shed. But at this point, I'm not even sure if he will make it that far. He is still very weak and not eating on his own. He has taken a couple of tiny bites of fly innards, and a droplet or two of honey. I don't know if I can feed him enough this way to get him back to strength. Maybe his "lost time" has damaged him beyond recovery. But I'll keep trying.
