Yup, just as I suspected, he's already contemplating his demands, lol!
Quite handsome !!!
SLAVE TO A KIND BUT, DEMANDING MASTER "PEACHES"
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon?, Ha Ha....guess again..... Like it or not, you are now a slave, lol!

Looks great, very alert + healthy ! He is a good size, not over stuffed like some dragons are that become couch potatoes at 2 years old. Keep him strong, healthy + active by feeding him enough but not stuffing him.

Good point AHBD.

For reference- Skipper's average adult weight is around 560g. She does not look stuffed but has filled in fat pads and hips. She has been this way for years now. She gets bugs less often than most people reccomend, but has always been healthy (blood test confirmed).

Every once in a while she likes to pig out and can hold around 600g for a while :lol:

I would reccomend encouraging greens as often as you can. If you start early it makes for a very easy adult transition. But don't force her off bugs by any means at this young age.

Today went well! He's so calm and alert. We ventured to take him out. He did great. Cuddled up under a blanket on my daughter and fell asleep. He was alert too and getting to know all of us. What a great first day. I am officially in love

You made a good choice, he's young enough to seem like a baby but he's already a decent size and has a good temperament. :)

Be sure to leave him bask whenever he has a larger meal, they need good heat to digest things properly.

So the lady at store said he may not eat a lot today due to new environment which was true he didn't eat much. Couple greens that's it. Should he be better tomorrow eating?
