I am so sorry to hear about Charlie- I know the devastation feeling all to well as well as others on the forum-- it will take some time to heal that ache and missing feeling - all I can tell you is let yourself grieve and in time you may want to try again -- :(

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a shock. It really seemed like she was doing better. But they are such tough creatures and they hide their problems so well, it makes it hard.

There is nothing you could have done in 1 month that would have caused this. She was most likely pretty sick before you got her. Like I said, they are so good at hiding that.

I know it doesnt make it easier but you tried your best and she knows that!

Oh, dear! I am so so sorry for your loss. It is not your fault at all. Beardies mask their symptoms before we even realize what's going on with them. You tried so hard to make sure Charlie was in perfect conditions and no one would blame you for her passing. Sometimes they have things wrong before we even get them and because you didn't have her for more than a month, it would've been hard to kinda get in tune with her behaviors. We just hope that you get another beardie down the road! And I totally believe you should totally be Toothless or Hiccup in memory of Charlie.

RIP little Charlie.

Oh no, I'm so sad to read this. :( My deepest condolences to you. : ( That last pic on the rock she looked sick with her mouth open, then she passed a large pool of diarrhea. Are there fake plants or anything in the tank she might have eaten ?

there is a fake plant, but it isn't possible for her to eat because its very sturdy, and i cut off the parts mimicing stems because they werent as sturdy. there wasnt anything else in her terrarium she couldve eaten besides stuff thats supposed to be eaten

Hello,

Oh no, I am so very sorry that you lost Charlie. :cry:
It is a heart breaking feeling, no matter how long or short of time you have a precious dragon.
You didn't do anything wrong at all & I am quite sure that she knew just how much you loved
her.
We are all here for you.

I may get another beardie soon, one that isn't from a pet store this time, and is a little older..
I miss Charlie a lot, but it hurts to wake up in the morning and see her empty terrarium... :(

Hello,

You never really get over losing a dragon, but with time, it gets a little easier. The
heart break never seems to go away though.
We are all here for you should you need anything.

Last night, my mom and I found a super cool exotic pet store. The animals there were SUPER friendly, and seemed to be very well cared for. The staff knew so much!! They even feed the beardies there a very healthy and varied diet, unlike other places where I live, like the chain pet store I got Charlie from. Of course, I decided to get one of the beardies. Meet Darwin!

He can't replace Charlie, but he's just as special. He is very active and healthy, I can already tell the difference. I'm confident that he's in good shape, as the staff at the exotic pet store were super knowledgable on everything. They were even able to sex him there, which I was surprised; I thought he was too young to tell! He's even already tame, he loves to be picked up and pet.

Hey, that's great !! What a cutie Darwin is , very healthy looking too ! A new pet doesn't diminish the love you had for Charlie but it adds a new dimension of excitement as a new little creature to take care of + become enamored with. Hope Darwin has a long + healthy life. :)
