Mario's Super World

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.

It looks like you have a nice enclosure set up for him too.

BTW, what kind of a thermometer do you have? Those kind that stick on the wall are usually inaccurate. Hard to tell from the photos if that's what you have in there.

Wow! It's been a while!

Mario is getting HUGE! He is 13 inches and 122 grams.
The most he's eaten so far is 435 bugs in 1 week, about 62 bugs a day! :shock:

Roach breeding is going well, but the 1/2 inch bugs are elusive! We ended up getting a 3rd container so we can get the tiny babies out of the big bin and grow them in a different one.

He's also big enough now to roam around the living room under CLOSE supervision. And, his first set of wings almost fits!

Also, dubiaroaches.com is still (IMO) the best place to order bugs from. Mario eats dubias, BSFL, and mealworms for treats. I've never had a problem with them, and their Instagram is hilarious and transparent when it comes to their business practices. Can't recommend enough. :headbang:

Hope everyone else is doing well!

Sounds like Mario is doing a good job eating and growing. :blob5:

..And it also sounds like you are doing a good job raising your own roaches. We played around with the idea of doing that but decided against it -- not sure how it would have worked with a breeding colony and one beardie, so we're still buying our roaches at the pet store, as well as crickets and the occasional hornworm splurge. They don't always have everything, but they usually have something that he'll eat. :)
