Meet Donny...part 2

Postby lgracethompson94 » Fri Mar 01, 2019 6:16 pm

Hi my name is Lauren and I’d like to introduce my Donny for the second time. (UK)
I’m a first time beardie slave and after a few ups and downs he’s thriving and more characterful than ever. The day we brought him home we put together his Vivarium (my gut instinct was to set this up prior but I gave in to my boyfriend). We bought a starter kit by viv exotic which I can highly recommend apart from our missing bits (rare). We got it home to find we had no screws or instructions! 90 mins later...
At 6 months he acted strange after we moved house. Not having a reptile expert vet nearby we got some advice that he was healthy after a visit, turns out he had moderate levels of 2 parasites and excess yeast (so he’s most likely a girl!). Considering they did a substandard job they recommended the correct medication and rehab aids (avipro plus) and he was right as rain before we knew it. Never been so stressed and worried!
At 10 months old he’s 19 inches and approx 400-450 grams (haven’t weighed him for a while, and he was 350g at 16 inches). Mad to think he was 7 inches when we got him at 3 months! His absolute faves are dubia roaches and fruit beetle grubs. And despite him having parasites around Christmas time his reaction to the Christmas tree was priceless, if it wasn’t for the probability of him getting stuck I would let him nestle in!

I'm glad to hear he's doing well. Those vivexotic enclosures are nice. I wish we had them available in the US. At his size I'm sure we can figure out his gender if you post some photos of him facing away with tail arched up. You can use a flashlight like this as well https://www.beardeddragon.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=204533
