Meet Princess Zelda!

Postby mrussinovich » Mon Apr 06, 2020 4:11 pm

Hi there! My beardie's name is Princess Zelda, but Zelda for short. I just got her a few days ago, and based on a *very rough* measurement, she is about 2 months old. I'm a new beardie momma so I'm having to learn as I go, but hope to find some helpful questions and answers here! I also say "she" but I can't tell what her gender is yet because she's so young, and I'm trying to handle her as little as possible for the first week or so. I can't wait to join this community!

This is my best photo of Zelda, she's very small, about 6 inches long!

Well, I haven't had her for terribly long yet, but she keeps scratching her head against things like her basking perch and flooring. I know this means she's trying to shed, and I've given her a soak a few days ago, but I can't see any shed (yet.) I have a few beardie groups I'm in that I can also ask, but I wanted to see y'alls opinion? Thanks!

She is probably going into a shed and it just has not appeared yet --- let them shed on their own do not pick and you can mist her - shes probably having relocation stress so its best not to bath her as it adds more stress to her - misting her will help along w/ a soft tooth brush when she really goes into shed then you can put her in a bath to help soften and loosen the shed -- and use the soft tooth brush on her then it will help loosen what is coming off

Things are doing pretty well, but I have the wrong sized crickets for her! I ordered 1000 small crickets and the shipment was messed up so I got 1000 adults. I am making due at the moment, and am re-ordering more crickets of the right size, but probably less at this point. I'm starting to train her to get used to me, but she keeps trying to scamper off and she is FAST. Just a day at a time at this point...

Too bad about the crickets!

Yeah, they can be quite flighty when they are young lol. But they warm up to humans eventually :)
