The Loki Thread

Postby JessPets » Mon Dec 12, 2016 10:21 am

After seeing a lot of threads about people's dragons, I decided to make one for my little Loki.

This is him:

He is about 3 1/2 months, and I bought him at ReptiCon last month. He is extremely goofy and sometimes...well, not so bright :wink: He's tried attacking a plastic container of dubia multiple times and uses his basking platform supports like a way to slide down to the ground :lol:

Now, my thread probably won't be as good as Saphira's or Skipper's, but I'll try.

So Loki just went through a big shed, and is pushing 10.5 inches! He is close to 5 months old, and will eat about anything (crickets, roaches, greens). He is still very tentative and defensive around me though :?

What are your personal experiences with taming? How long did it take?

He's a cutie.

For taming it's just a matter of the two of you getting used to each other. Each animal is different. A consistent routine is the best for them to get used to you.

Dunno why I didn't see this before Loki. I'm glad to see you shouted out my thread :) You are one handsome little dude.

In my dragon opinion, I think you should talk to Loki a lot. I like when my slave speaks to me, and I like to make him think I understand spanish! Also, try not to approach Loki from above. We have the instinct to think it may be a bird or other predator.

Try hand feeding Loki some bugs. We dragons can rarely resist bugs... even from a human hand.

All dragons are different. It took me a few months to get used to my human, but I know a 2 week old dragon who already loves interacting.

Are you talking about my Saphira? Cause if you are don't tell him. His ego is already to much.

Thought since it's been so long since I last posted on here, I'd do an update:

Some pictures taken this morning:

He is almost 7 months and is pushing 13" (full length including tail)! He seems a little small though... what were your beardie's length at this age?

He is incredibly adorable!
Those big beady eyes :lol:

All dragons of course grow at different rates. I'd say Loki is a little on the smaller end, but could always hit a huge growth spurt!
My older girl is quite little, being almost 2yrs now and only 16.5" long. I'm unsure if there's anything I did wrong or if it's just genetics. My younger guy just hit about 6 1/2 mo old and is already 16.25" long and going at a pace of .5" per week (2"/mo)! I keep referring to him as my little alligator due to size, but there's always the likelihood he could stop growing or even get a large growth spurt still.

I'm sure Loki will become the champion you need regardless of his size :D

Looks like Loki's happy and healthy to me! Handsome, too! :)

Seems he's filling out nicely, but still got some of that baby-face going on, too cute! Gotta love the beardie gut. :P Thomas is around 16 inches right now, and he's 6 months old. I also had one dragon that seemed to stop growing when he hit about a year, then had a massive spurt and shot up 3 more inches in a month and a half!

They are definitely all different, just like us people, and it's the love and health and happiness that matters! :D
