silly boy is pooped

this is what he does every time after about 15 minutes of exploring. goes in his area I have setup under his tank so he can still get warm when he's out the cage.

He's not so silly.... I reckon he's pretty smart and he knows a good place to crash and burn after he runs out of beans.

oh yeah he knows where to go. took me a few days to make him realize this was his hiding and warm spot outside his cage. now that he knows it he goes straight to it every time

Lucky and Peppa were great at putting themselves to bed when they were too pooped to play on daddy or had enough daddy snuggles, they'd look at their bed-tub, and when I finally took the hint and placed it on the lounge next to me on the coffee table, they'd crawl across and into it and disappear inside their little hide.

George does something similar when he's had enough floor time, he'll crawl over to his tank and look at it then at me, and repeat this until I take the hint and lift him in.

Puff did the same and now Toothless is doing the same thing.

Not trained them to do this, this is self taught by them..... Lizards are much smarter than most think.
