If you were to follow Toothless and Peppa around with a little webcam, you could probably collect enough material for a YouTube sitcom entitled "Beardies Behaving Badly". :lol:

Hook up tiny gopro cams to them and broadcast over Periscope. Would be quite a popular channel!

I think Toothless's rampant hormones are finally settling. He's much more settled the last few days , had his longest ever daddy snuggle yesterday for over an hour , even pancaked and spread out and nodded off on me like Peppa dose.
Long daddy and mommy snuggles today too .... mommy of dragons was very pleased.

He's back to casual visits to Peppa's tank but not obsessing over her as much now. We survived !

Might just be cold wet weather yesterday and today making him lazy , the BTs and Peppa were all very lazy today and yesterday.

Dragon snuggles (and snake snuggles as well) are much enjoyed at our house too.

So far we've been lucky that our beardie's hormonal craziness doesn't last very long -- a few hours of blackbearding and headbobbing on a few afternoons, usually in the spring, but you can't set your clock or your calendar by it.

At least you know they're reasonably healthy. The first time our beardie went hormonal after he'd been sick, I had to remind myself that it was a good sign because I'd almost forgotten what a normal healthy adult male bearded dragon was supposed to do. :wink:

Toothless has finally decided he really enjoys snuggles now .... Only took 2 years for him to become smoogy , like Peppa always has been , and Rex and Puff always were.

LOL I am picturing grumpy cat type beardie snuggling in saying - fine, but I'm not going to like it! :lol:

That reminds me of a little cat I had over 20 years ago. I once sat down on the bed and picked her up and put her in my lap. She squirmed out of my lap, walked up to the foot of the bed, then turned around and walked back to me and plopped herself back in my lap. Her meaning was perfectly clear: "I'll sit in your lap but I have to be sure that you understand that it was MY idea."

Lots of people say that a bearded dragon is a dog in a lizard's body, but I think that many of them are more like a cat in a lizard's body. :wink:

I tell people who have no idea about lizards as pets that the beardies are my SPIKEY CATDOGS and the BTs are my SCALEY SAUSAGE DOGS.

Spoke too soon, Toothless is really GRUMPY today, wouldn't even sit still long enough to let me feed him much , he's in mega shed (arms, hands, legs, throat, belly all at one and hot happy today) , and he's really all over the place (hormonal again today !!).

Poor guy. Major shedding project and massive springtime overdose of hormones all at the same time. Can't blame him for being grumpy. He deserved a silkworm treat. Glad he's feeling better. :)

Peppa is just about to do a major shed on her back and tail and tummy very soon, and she's still mega sweet , never get any agro or dramas from her .... two totally different dragons personality wise.

George did a major shed last night, woke for find skin here there and everywhere in his tank.
