Dang things can change. Before and after pics.

This forum is specifically for people who want to share day-to-day stories about their beardies... the weird or fun stuff. This is not a forum for seeking help, but more just for sharing the cuteness that is your beardie.

Dang things can change. Before and after pics.

I cannot believe Just how much a Beardie can grow in a little over a year.

This was the day I got my wee lad Rocket, basking on his log. At a small 39 grams and 8" long.

Then this was Today, a little over a year and a half later, chilling on his same log. The lad is less small at a nice 280 grams (last I weighed) and 20" long. It's insane just how much he's grown.

I'd love to see other's before and after photos!

Wow! I showed my daughter, who "knows" what's going to happen in the upcoming year with Mario, and even she was impressed!

Yup. The things that will most likely happen for you within the next year will be:

•Mario will get nice and big with the proper care and steal the hearts of everyone in your 8-bit family.
And;
•There's a HIGH chance you will soon get a Luigi now that you have been infected with the love of beardies. It's like potato chips, Ultimately you can't have just one. :lol:

As for this, I hope not! :shock: We don't have the room for two 4x2x2 enclosures :( But after following along with everyone's adventures on this site, I can certainly see that happening!

Nice! And I definitely agree, Logs are great for really discovering how much they have grown. :)

Aww, these are bittersweet. I always miss them as babies, and seeing those old pics always makes me miss their small phase lol.

I have a similar picture of Tombo, but on a rock. I agree, keeping the same furniture piece is fun for things like this :)

Yep, I saw some tiny dragons in the store yesterday and it really made me miss when Rocket was that small. The baby stages are so fun :love5:

All,
Fantastic shots of all your before and after beardies. Yes, they change A LOT in just a year. Here's a before and after of Lannan. First shot is @ 6 weeks, 7" and ? grams in the bathroom sink 2nd shot is tonight @ 11mo., 21" and 420 grams. Geesh! :lol: It's hard to believe this is the same BD from August of last year. I'd try to take a pic of him in the bathroom sink, but...I don't think he's gonna fit.
