That face just screams "are you seriously going to take a picture of everything I do?"


Don't let it get to you, the correct answer is YES! LOL

If I sit on the couch I swear they watch me from their side of the room. It's maybe 12 feet away. They're pretty attuned to small movements and movements in general which I didn't expect.

I think they like having things to look at, and people watching. It's one thing I don't like about my setup. They are in their own room, so they don't get much enrichment unless we go in there and hang out. Despite how pretty I try to build the tanks, the wife still doesn't like the idea of keeping 1 or 2 in the living room :(

Lol I wasn’t excited about it really either. I really wanted this for my kids though, so sacrifices must be made haha. And it’s not too bad now. They’re fun to watch, even from a distance. My dog sits and watches them too. I’m glad we had them in the house for so long without anything in them because he’s so used to them now he doesn’t notice them unless he sees them moving, and then he’s learning not to crowd. If their cages are open he gets locked up.

Got the BSFL in and that’s the most enthusiastic Wilbur (formerly Elliot) has been about food. He would eat greens, but had kinda left the roaches alone. But he’s at his food bowl now and came down from his spot lightning fast when I put them in.

I think he will eat it all eventually he’s finishing up his shed now. CandyCane is now shedding on her legs it looks like and she’s been itching her face too so I’m assuming more is to come.

Wilbur is super bright now that he's finished shedding. He's coming down more and more, eating out of his bowl and getting acclimated to his enclosure. He will take food from the tweezers now, but if it moves a bit too fast he's off lol.

She's brightening up like crazy. Hard to get a picture of her colors but she's almost a neon peach on her sides. It's truly insane. And she stares. Obviously.

They are so cute when they are little -- and find the craziest places to get into --

Your dragons get cuter with each pic you post! Love their coloration, and glad to hear that they're settling in well. BSFL are a miracle food for dragons... I only wish they were larger, for when our dragons get bigger! Figment can go through 100 larges in one meal... he practically inhales them, and they go right in one end and out the other, which kinda defeats the nutritional value, but I'm hoping that SOME get chewed and properly digested! Keep the pics coming, and the stories of the kids and their dragons, too! :D

Link, our dog, likes watching them too.
On a side note, Wilbur (formerly Elliot) freaked us all out when he bulged his eyes, but I'm assuming it's because his head is going to be shedding soon. It was just...very unpleasant to see lol. Freaked out my son to say the least.

How long is typical for a baby bearded dragon to keep their stress marks after relocation? Wilbur still has his.

I don’t know if there’s a “typical” time; dragons are all individuals, so one could settle in within a week and another could take several weeks. As long as he’s basking and getting warm enough (stress marks don’t always mean they’re stressed; he could get them if he’s cold) and eating well, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. :)

Ok good. He’s basking, roaming around, eating. Even let me pet him this morning and closed his eyes and stayed. Usually he’ll run off after a second or two. I’m sure it didn’t help that he was in shed when I got him, but now that’s he’s out I was just wondering. Although CandyCane shed yesterday so she’s been a little...cranky I guess? Lol. Not nearly the appetite she had when she came either. Temps are good though, spritzing with water once a day for them to drink and stuff.
