Big blue bearded dragons...¿

Postby Darkoshi » Wed Jul 31, 2019 4:53 pm

Hello everyone. I am getting into breeding beardies and I have a female trans with pp blood named Chromie and this guy named Gary I got from petsmart in may... wondering if he is a specific type of dragon.. the 'store leader'at petsmart said their private breeder supplies all of canadian petsmarts and it's their only supplier. They are all tested and she says the breeder captures them from the wild in places they are invading like Mexico and Florida and Texas and have established wild colonies... anyways he is 4-5months oldish and 300g+(I spoil him :mrgreen: ) 16+ inches and has long spikes. Very vibrant bluey lavender purple sides. Cheers

He looks like a normal morph to me. No outwardly showing mutations! :)

Nice colors! I wouldn't be pouring ice water on him though. As long as they have both a basking area around 105*F and a cooler area around 80*F that he can go to in his cage, they are good at regulating their own temperature. Same comments for outside- if he has access to full sun and shade, you'll find him going back & forth depending on how he's feeling temp-wise.

He literally never moves out of the sun, he opens his mouth so I pour water on him and he chills out. I move him in the shade after an hour at most for breaks.

This is his spot. He has never jumped off this ledge, it's mostly sun all day.

Just what breeder is this? Because I did some research and there aren't any Wild bearded dragons in Mexico, Florida, and Texas. The environment just isn't right for them, AND beardies don't have wild colonies even out in the wild in Australia. They are solitary creatures and typically only come together to mate and then they part their ways. I'm sorry to say but I think your petstore has fed you some wrong information. He just looks like a normal morph to me.

Also I would never recommend pouring ice water on your beardie, It could drastically change their body temp which could cause many problems, just don't do it. The all black beard is him showing signs of distress because beardies usually aren't the biggest fans of water, and on top of that it's ice cold? Please just don't do that.

I know I found lackluster info about wild beardies in north america/she sounded like a coot.. that's just what the 'store leader' told me after asking where they get their dragons because I filed a complaint about a moldy looking one there and asked what breeder supplies them? She says she cant give his identity, But.... Good to know about teh water though lawl. I saturate the Gary like f00k whooopzidaizy.. he just closing his eyes for a sec and smiles slyly. I figured he enjoys it

The “wild” beardies could be people’s pets that they released.

Yeah... especially Florida--the humidity would kill them (from respiratory infections) in short order, assuming they weren't eaten by the invasive Burmese Pythons first.

GoHerping tried to get info on PetSmart's reptile breeders a little over a year ago.
