so Boggle has been at home for 1 day now!

we've been through quite the range of things in that time - not long after getting home we had some arm waving (possible cutest thing i've ever seen?), there was a few seconds of eye bulging, plenty of stink eye (or in our case "boggle eye"), some one eye closing, already discovered what a pain crickets are, and already made a little boy angry by chasing a rogue cricket round his house.

as soon as his lights went out last night he discovered his hammock and promptly fell asleep flat out with his little arms and legs spread out - and he was in exactly the same place when i came into the room this morning!

basically - we love this little boy.

by the way - anyone know where to get dubia nymphs in the uk?

Blessings & Love
RD.

Awww! So great! Enjoy it they grow fast I hear. Lots of shedding. 😃
I missed out on the baby stuff since my boy was grown when I got him, but he's still amazing.

so, today we had our first calci-worms - which he loved.

and, importantly, we also had our first poop!

now, i am no expert, but to me it looked perfect (of course i took a picture of it).

i also have some dubias - i ordered the smallest ones i could find but actually i think they are probably a little big for him.

If I can give a gross suggestion. Roaches have an interesting nervous system, say if you cut them half they would still wiggle their legs. I know that's awful to say but a dragon has to eat. Boglarka is so tiny and precious

Boggle has been at home for one week now!

he loves his crickets and his calci-worms, he picks at his greens when he thinks no one is watching and he will eat from my hand.

we had a little breakthrough this morning, it was the first time he sat on my hand (even if i did have to bribe him with a couple of worms):

my little one has the most amazing, beautiful pattern and colours:

this is the best pic i have at the moment to show his colour:

do you think he could be a "tiger" morph?
(i don't know anything about this, i was just having a little look on google).

Tiger really isn't a morph, more so a pattern or a "trait". That being said, since it's not an actual morph, everyone has their own opinion of what patterning constitutes a tiger.

Traits and patterns get confusing for that reason. There is no set standard like their is for actual morphs. Like, a leatherback is clearly a leatherback. And a hypo is clearly a hypo. But citrus, tiger, tang, etc.. those are up to interpretation.
