Bugs suffered from severe brain damage, which was the reason his eyes bugged out that much (you can see the pressure on them in the closeup shots). He was born normal, but due to circumstance, became quite ill. Prolapsing, regurgitating, etc., and he never grew from that time on (He was about 12" or so, the perch in the pic is a plastic coathanger). He passed though many hands in his 4+ years. He was in my care for one year and doing fine the entire time I had him, not a problem until he started to go downhill right towards the end. You can read more about Bugs at
