Update On Opal!

Postby beardeddragonnewbie » Thu Oct 31, 2019 7:37 am

Hello! I recently got my baby fancy Opal, she is 6 3/4inches long and I believe she's Hypo, as all her nails are clear, I posted a thread on her in introductions, so this is an update! She's been eating her mealworms, and FINALLY started eating her veggies which I'm SO happy about! She has been doing really well. She started shedding on Monday, and I always give her a bath on Mondays. So when I gave her the bath, it really loosened up her skin, so she ended up shedding ALL her skin that day!! So I'm also happy that there was no problems with her shedding. She has a specific sleeping position that she stays in every night, she'll go up to the wall of her hide/tank and keep her bottom half on the ground, but rest her top half up on the wall :lol: its really cute, I'll try to get a pic. But this morning when I went to turn her lights on, she was in that position, except IN her water bowl! I was scared at first, thinking she would have drown, but fortunately the water was only about 1/2 inch deep, so her top half was above water :wink:

I would take the water bowl out at nite --- and please no more meal worms -- the exoskeleton on the worm is too harsh on the baby--- you can feed super worms as treats only or to get them to salad bowl like 3 tops and you can feed BSFL to get her to the salad bowl as well and use as many as you like as they are a good staple feeder --- feed first thing and staple feeder like dubia roaches after about 30 minutes or so -- make sure you add worms to salad and she sees you doing this----- you want her eating her salad too

That's great news! :)

I'm glad Opal is doing good and settling in.

Since you introduced her, you should start her a thread in the beardie tales section of this forum so that you can have all your updates in one place. It's nice to be able to look back on stories and pictures of your dragons like that.

I could move this thread over there for you if you'd like, and then you could continue to use it as Opals journal of sorts :)
A bunch of us have threads over there anyways, you should too for opal :)

Awesome! Now just make sure you post lots of pictures and keep us updated on your little one! It really is awesome to be able to look back and see old pictures of your dragon, and relive old memories. This is the best way to do it IMO :D
I'm glad I did this with my past dragons, and it's why I continue to do so with my current :)
