About 18'' or so. I haven't paid as much attention to his length since he was an adult when I got him and hasn't grown lengthwise. I can double check when I get home from work.

He's gotten to be a hefty boy. And now you know how big he is. :)

Poor little dude has a full body shed going. He is now known as rattledragon due to the crunchy rattle noise he makes as he runs around. The good news is that he hasn't had to go in his tank for a whole month and can drag himself along the cheap carpet of the apartment all he wants. His appetite is way up (a couple of bowls of squash and collards a day after picking off two containers of hornworms) and his weight is back to normal after his post brumation energy phase.

Also decided to be a - and sank himself to the bottom of his bath and just sat there until he was pulled back out and then played dead for a bit. He's fine, just being a brat.

Was he trying to drown himself to protest the running out of hornworms? Lol

I think he was protesting the shed. Poor guy goes between acting miserable and acting starved and following me around the house begging for yummies. :lol:

For the past week or so he has started curling up under furniture and falling asleep early. Around lunch time early. It's feast or famine with this guy :lol: I can get him interested in window time for a little while but he gets tired quickly. Appetite is still good and his weight is back up to normal pre-brumation level at around 560g. This is starting in a bit earlier than normal. I might let him sleep for a while and see if he gets energetic again late in the summer. Who knows. :dontknow:

He has still been sleeping through most days. He woke up yesterday so I took him outside for time in the sun and to enjoy his new playpen. He was really energetic and loved it! At some point something got his attention (no idea what) and he started arm waving which I've never seen him do before. Shortly after that he started getting tired and cranky so I brought him back inside and he promptly fell asleep behind the couch. Has been pretty sleepy again all day today. Hopefully he will wake back up soon to enjoy the summer weather outside.

That looks so fun for him!

I have often wondered - how does one tell tell that a dragon is grumpy?

I usually go by color and movement/behavior. I suppose it can be different between dragons but when Darwin has a bright orange beard and is either running from place to place with his tail up or sitting still but looking alert, he is usually happy/content. If his beard starts to go gray or his colors turn less orange and he starts pacing walls and moving in more frantic or darting motions he is restless or grumpy. Sometimes this shows in him hiding or looking for places to bunker down and sleep.

We went up to the lake/cabin in Minnesota last week. Darwin enjoyed it although temps were lower than usual (50s in the day) so he didn't go out on the water (or swimming in it) this time. We went on a hike around a small set of lakes one day and he really liked moving through the woods (which he's never seen before). He required some breaks from time to time to investigate the trail a bit. He enjoyed time on the deck getting some sun and I set up a more elaborate lighting system than usual which worked really well. He had a heat emitter on a timer to keep the corner warm overnight. His bag provided a comfortable hide. He had some basking pieces from his main enclosure with him. There was a MVB spitting out about 2.5 UVI and 100f and a halogen providing about 90-110 depending on where it was measured. He was spoiled by BSFL so now getting back into the routine of veges. He did really well on the long car rides both ways, as he usually does.
