Mufasa and Norberta

Postby MufasasMomMakayla » Thu Jul 02, 2015 9:41 am

I already introduced me and Fasa, but I thought you all might like to see his cuteness, lol. I also have a question for you professionals: do you have any idea what morph he is?

Here he is sleeping in his new tree, slept in it all of last night.
Mufasa will just sit on my chest and nap or watch whats going on. ;)
One last question: Half the time he doesn't eat his crickets, is there anything I can do to help him eat?
Well, I think that's all for now! :) :)

I'm so excited! :) Mufasa was eating and I heald out my hand with a piece of apple on it and after he had eaten a meal worm and sat around he (hesitantly) climbed on my hand for the first time!!!

He's a cute little guy. So tiny! He looks like a standard dragon to me. Probably no morph unless he has all clear nails or something like that. It's not unusual for their appetite to fluctuate sometimes but you may want to try feeding crickets in small batches of just a few at a time. They may be easier for him to track that way and not be as overwhelming.

He is rather small atm! :) Ah, thank you CooperDragon, Standard it is. I usually give him one cricket at a time, so I'll try more at his next feeding and we'll see how that goes. :-)

Another thought is that he may like some variety. Try picking up some Phoenix Worms for him and see how he likes them. They are nice and small so they'd be a good option as an alternate feeder bug for him.

Oh yes! I have meal worms but I know they aren't that healthy for him so I don't do them often. Phoenix worms, gotcha, thanks again.

So Mufasa and I have been doing great!
I've started letting him run around my room (always super supervised!). I set out his rock with a lamp over it and let him do whatever. I'll get a pic of that soon.
We also have a "bed time routine" where I wrap him up in his blanket ( a scrap of soft fabric ) and sit with him on me for a while before I head to bed, he falls asleep all most right away and seems to enjoy cuddle time.
He is shedding big time, slowly, lol! He has been eating pretty well and seems to love clover!!
I also thought I would share a pic of his cage set up atm.

It sounds like he's doing well! I'm glad to hear it, thanks for the update. His tank looks very good. Nice basking spot and shade area.

Just thought I'd share this picture I just took of Mufasa, lol. It almost looks painful!

You'd think so, but it's pretty common. I think it's comfortable for most of them to sit like that.

Well, it turns out Mufasa might be a she, not a he. :) I'm pretty sure actually, but am going to be taking him to the pet store I got him from and having them check. That'll be next week, when, if they affirm that he is a she, I plan on getting a second little girl. :)
So today me and Mufasa hung out while I organized my bookshelf (I'm obsessed with books and organizing) and I finally remembered to get pictures!
[Click image to enlarge]

Here he is exploring.

Must. Head. Towards. The. Light. That's kinda my basic setup for when he's out.

Close up in his rock warming up.

And Mufasa just relaxing while I worked.

So this is how Norberta slept all last night. XD

And my confused little Mufasa slept with me in his blanket until I went to bed.

All in all, we're doing good!

Lol. Norberta's pose looks worthy of the thread https://www.beardeddragon.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=141955 I think Mufasa had the better idea =)

That thread is hilarious, will definitely put it up there! I agree, Mufasa enjoys bedtime. :) I have a blanket for Norberta and put her on it not wrapped up, but she ran off and on to the glass, silly lizard.

Hello everyone!
I haven't posted in a while, so here's a update, lol!
Norberta has settled in really well! She's turning out to be quite the amusing dragon. :-) She eats a ton, anything that moves is hers, even if is Mufasa's. She sleeps in the weirdest contortions! This was last nights, on top of the tower.
[Click image to enlarge]

She has some gorgeous colors when she's not all moody, all sandy brown. She HATES bathtime and acts as though it's the end of the world and climbs up my arm to escape the water and gives me pouty eyes. :-D
[Click image to enlarge]

She's shedding on her head a bit at the moment.
One last picture of Norberta from today. :)

Mufasa is doing better than she had been! My gorgeous little girl was getting super super skinny and I was starting to get really worried but she has started to eat a bit more and is filling out again!! Here she is today.
[Click image to enlarge]

She is shedding a bit on her sides and her head as well. Exploring after having salad today.
[Click image to enlarge]

She's still my snuggle bug! Here is a size comparison of Norberta and Mufasa.

Norberta exploring today.

Norberta us not a big fan of snuggles and loves to jump and run away, lol.
I hope you don't mind if I introduce my other critters that aren't BD. :)
Butterscotch is my eight y.o. big girl, I've had her since she was a kitten.
[Click image to enlarge]

[Click image to enlarge]

She looks a bit possessed in this pic, lol, she never holds still for good pics.
This is a stray cat around my place, Midnight. He comes around almost every morning for food, so I count him in as part of my pack. ;)

Then comes little Newt my scuttley little hermit crab.

And the newest member is my big hermit crab Peeta. :)

Sorry for the epic!
