Pancake & the Hooman

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.

Isn't it wonderful to be owned by so many lovely pets?


Thank you! They're just as spoiled :lol: Your birds are super pretty! It really is, I don't know what I'd do without pets

...I think Pancake is reaching a level of self-awareness...

When he was enjoying his explore time outside of his tank yesterday he paused to look around, then randomly turned and became fascinated with his knee?? :lol: He licked it then turned back around and started staring and tilting his head back and forth while looking at his front feet. He licked one of his feet and then went back to running around. Has anyone else's beardie done this? Or is Pancake just becoming more of a weirdo? LOL

I AM BACK.

I was trying to take super cute pictures of Pancake outside in June when his beardie glare got so intense that it broke the camera in my phone :shock:

The final photo before my phone was tragically ruined

... Okay maybe it was just because of the heat outside, but I just got my phone back and will be back to posting cute pictures!

As for some other Pan related updates, he has finally reached 300g!! I am so happy. Although he is shedding a lot, and doesn't seem very happy about it. He has also gone on a Repashy strike, he refuses to eat anything veggie related unless it is Veggie Burger :/ He's such a brat sometimes lol.

I got an outdoor enclosure for him so he can get his energy out outside safely, I will have pictures up soon :D

Thank you! :)

New Enrichment Stuff
I noticed that Pancake seems to have a thing for crawling through hoops or holes, so I bought him a crinkle tunnel. He was a bit nervous of it at first, but he eventually realized it can be a good place to nap during playtime.

He has also gotten MUCH more comfortable outside and gets a bit squirmy, but he's such a sneak that he gets out of beardie harnesses somehow. So the only option was an outdoor enclosure.

It's an extra-large ZooMed Repti-Breeze enclosure that I placed horizontally. It's not as fancy as what I had in mind, but it's probably more practical since it's easy to move around. I'm still deciding on what else to put in it. Right now he has two pieces of driftwood, his bathing bowl for water or to swim in, and a bunch of leaves which seem to be working well for shade (plus he likes to rustle around in them lol).

Here he is carefully investigating the new log.

And this is just a wholesome picture of Pancake and some flowers :D

The Pan-Fund

Being a university student, I always get a little nervous that something will happen to Pancake and I won't be able to afford the vet bill or that I'll have some other unexpected financial blow and not be able to order in all his fancy bugs from the Worm Lady. However, since I sometimes get tips from my seasonal job, I decided to make Pancake a trust fund :lol: This way if anything happens Pancake will be all good.

That outdoor enclosure is fantastic!!! I just started trying Norbert in a mesh hamper that zips closed. Your thing is way better! I love the PanFund idea - LOL
It's actually quite sensible. :0)
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

How is the hamper going? I've seen a lot of people use those but Pancake gets a bit too zoomy when he's happy so I felt like he wouldn't have enough room.

The enclosure is super light; the frame is aluminum so it's pretty handy to just assemble and then move in and out of the house when needed. It was around $174 CAD, which is fairly cheap compared to some other ones I was looking at.

:lol: Thanks, I keep the jar in the cupboard under his terrarium. It's hilarious because whenever I open the door he comes running over (expecting to get some bugs or a treat), and when he hears coins clinking in the jar instead he tilts his little head like, "Huh?? Hooman?? You are giving me the monies??"

LOL!!!
Tell Pan it's his bug money!

The hamper is good enough to just get Norbert some safe outdoor/sun time, but he does climb around its walls, and would probably appreciate a bit of running room.

I saw the picture of it on Instagram, the purple colour looks pretty cute :) It also looks like you managed to fit more stuff in it than I had expected would fit in a hamper lol.

Veggie Problems

Pancake's Repashy strike seems to be coming to an end, he tried orange bell pepper for the first time yesterday and loved it. Hopefully he'll go back to eating twice a day, but I think he's probably grumpy about the full body sheds right now. He has also been jumping all over my keyboard while I was trying to type this so he must be feeling less itchy today.

Trying the bell pepper with some escarole and dandelion leaves.

How often is it okay to feed a beardie bell peppers? On the beautiful dragons nutrition chart it says occasionally, but it doesn't give any nutritional facts on yellow and orange bell peppers.

Also, I will need to check out your thread for your beardies :D Tombo is such a cute name!

I do it once or twice a week if I have bell peppers on hand. They aren't something I buy regularly for them so when I have it, they get it :)

That face!!!! :-D
The purple in the pic you saw is a piece of fleece. The rest is extra accessories from early on. It's a handy setup for now, but I'm definitely considering one like yours!
Norbert is trying to train me to only feed him his favorite worms right now, so I totally understand the veggie excitement.
