Moro is all over her enclosure. That's awesome. And of course Tombo is being the king lizard he was destined to be :D

Moro did her first poo on her sand. Quite a large one too I'm surprised. Glad to see her system is working at least lol.

My shipment of mealworms and supers came in today. I keep telling myself to stop ordering 1000 supers at a time, because it's such an ungodly amount to dump out of a bag and see just squirming around in their bin. Almost wish I would have bought more mealworms instead. I think I did 1000 supers and 500 mealworms. I would have done 1000 mealworms but I can't seem to keep them from all wanting to pupate and turn into beetles.

At one point I was fine with this as I wanted to try to breed mealworms. But they are so cheap, it's more work than it's worth IMO. Maybe I'll give it one last go. I have been successful, but it just doesn't seem worth my effort.

Glad to hear Moro is well. 🤗
Ya know, it's not like Supers have a limited shelf life. 😜Like you told me, you have to TRY to kill them! Lol! 😆 I would have never ordered 500 just for 1 adult if they were delicate or didn't stay worms for long. Rather safe than sorry right now. 👍
Was your order good? Nice size and active? I'm gonna need a larger container I think. The 1 I have is not quite as big as a shoe box but several inches taller. Might be ok with another inch of oats.

The supers were extremely active. They always are though. Nice pump and healthy.
Mealies were a little less active than I've had before, but none dead. I don't think they were larges like I ordered. But oh well, not like I needed to feed them off instantly. I can let them grow up a bit. They are so cheap you can't really complain lol.

They are all eating away at their carrots right now. Everyone got BSFL for dinner except Tombo. He got some supers :)

Another thing I'm trying is wheat bran. rainbow sells it for 2 bucks a lb, so I bought 4 lbs of it. I didn't know how "far" it would go. They came in 1 lb bags. 1 bag was way more than enough for the mealies.
and 1 bag seemed about right for the supers. I might add a bit of oats just because the supers mass is quite large when compared to the container they are in. But we will see how I like the wheat bran over the oats.
I've used oats for over 15 years now. But I'm not one to get stuck in a rut of things just because it's what I've always done. I like to experiment every once in awhile. EG. Moro's sand :)

The supers I got at the store came in the bran, I added half to the oats and then when I had to replace it all, mixed the other half with oats. Wonder if Pet Co has any? With the price of shipping I didn't want to add anything else to the order. Even though the price was much better than the store or amazon, it was a bite I really couldn't afford. I have some 100% organic whole wheat flour, prob wouldn't hurt to add a couple teaspoons to the oats. Also read somewhere about pulsing the oats a bit in a blender to break them up some, easier for tiny worm mouth but they don't seem to have any problem eating. 😆 mine have been getting fat with no deaths since the original order in Dec. Lost a few to cold weather and or long shipping, took like 8-9 days!
Feeling a little relieved that your supers came in well since I ordered from the same co. 🤞

I've ordered from rainbow quite a few times and always been happy. They are a relatively new company to me, I've always used mulberryfarms. I have order history going back to the late 2000's with them LOL. But for what I mainly buy now, which is supers, mealies, and BSFL, rainbow is usually better. And of course symton for BSFL.

I think you'll be happy with your order. Karries was unfortunate. The first I've heard of rainbow not delivering well. But it was silks, and they are notoriously delicate bugs.

Thanks hon. I do feel like the co dropped the ball on Karrie. Word of mouth can ruin your business. But hopefully it's all good, would like to have a dependable source with good prices. 👍
I had already clicked the order button! Lol! 😜

I don't believe you! And I won't go back and check to make sure you're right! LOL

Geeze time has been flying apparently, and it seems the opposite.

I'll try to get some pics up today. But I suppose no news was good news lol!

Moro has been doing well, she's looking a bit fat actually. Been cimbing her big branch which is nice to see!

Kiki shed and is about to again.
Tombo looks like hes filling out again.
Suki is starting a full body shed. She looks to be hitting a growth spurt.
Mei has been kinda lazy and just lying around. Although her tank is very bare bones. I would do well to enrich it for her a bit.

Pics later today hopefully once I'm done working on the garden boxes I'm building! :)

I was thinking of doing some bearded dragon cage projects while we’re all stuck at home too. I have a bunch of leftover cork so I was thinking of making them a mountain in the corners of their enclosures and a hide on the other side.

Have you seen kids and dragons new dragons up for sale recently? Some super nice ones. I totally understand why you have so many now lol.

I might do that. Currently I'm still working. But if I end up stopping, I'm definitely going to have to figure something out. I'm getting bored just on my 2 days off LOL.

Yeah, I follow a few breeders sale lists just to stay current on what projects are being worked on, and prices.
A few I follow quite regularly are kidsanddragons, phantom dragons, KPS, Fairytail dragons, dragintails, and Dachiu.
It at least gives me fun pictures to look at lol.

Just 1 picture today. Saw Kiki lying in a super weird position. Can't say I've ever seen it before with any of my dragons.

[Click image to enlarge]

Maybe it's the poo on her spot, and her being the dainty lady she is and all, is disgusted by it, and trying to keep her hand away. LOL.

Probably the poop in her spot lol. My husband took some time off because Louisiana is pretty bad and my kids and I were alll recovering from various illnesses already.

Oh that's hysterical!! Looks to me like she is expecting you to make it disappear. NOW!! 😠 You do NOT expect me to get up there with THAT?!?! 😆
Love it!❤ She's pretty. 🤗 Neat colors.
Maybe after you finish your garden boxes, we get some new pics of the others? 😉

Feels like I haven't been on in decades. Guess I've just been distracted with all that's happening in the world. Glad to see that the crew is doing well! Hope your fam is doing well and you're all staying safe. Crazy times happening all around us.
