Hornworms are friends, Not food.

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.

Hornworms are friends, Not food.

I Decided to feed the dragons some more hornworms as they were getting quite large, Everyone quickly and aggressively ate their worms, But When I went to feed Mulder, instead of him quickly eating it he was apparently fascinated by it instead.
Here's how things turned out:

Mulder Gazes at this green thing in awe and confusion, What could this thing be?

Ya know, I think I like this little green thing, He shall be my new buddy. I will call him Tom.

Rocket tries his best to break through the invisible force field to quickly lap up Tom for Mulder, as apparently he doesn't know how to eat them. Rocket should give him a demonstration on how to. Mulder doesn't like Rocket trying to eat his little buddy.

Nope. Tom is my hat. Hornworms are friends! Not food!

Hilarious! I think the thing I'm looking forward to the most is discovering little Mario's personality. I think a "hornworm hat" could be a fashion trend for sure... 8)

It is fun discovering everyone's personalities because they definitely all have distinct personalities.

Like Mulder is my Sweet but grumpy old man who mostly likes to bask and head bob at the other darn dragons making all the noise. That and search for the existence of aliens and other paranormal phenomena. :lol:

Loki is my Bigheaded chick magnet who loves snuggling and showing off his awesomeness, He's only slightly super self centered.

Daisy is my chill and proper Queen of the crew who enjoys sitting on her royal hammock and judging the other dragons. She's my most laid back and chill dragon.

Rocket is my hyperactive and very food oriented dork who cannot sit still without trying to eat something near him. He's a goofball.

And Phoenix is my Tiny kingpin who is probably slowly planning all of our impending dooms, But in the meantime she's a hyperactive and grumpy adorable little thing.

And Yep, Mulder is definitely going to be a fashion Icon now with the latest Trendy Hornworm hats. :cool:

Ok. I gotta ask. Did it ever dawn on Mulder (love that!) that his 'hat' was lunch? Just curious. 😊

Ya, me too. I've looked at this thread several times to check to see if Mulder's hat was a magic hat and, suddenly disappeared!!!

He didn't end up eating it so I gave it to Rocket, who practically inhaled it immediately.
