Oldest Beardie?

Postby TUPilot » Wed Nov 25, 2009 8:10 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I've only made a couple of posts on here over the years, but I've been wondering for some time how old a bearded dragon can be? Spike, my beloved beardie, recently passed away shortly after his 13th birthday. No one I've spoken with has heard anything more than a rumor of one older, but I've always wondered how many dragons make it to the 10+ range, and how far past that some have gone?

Spike was a great boy, and I take a lot of comfort in the fact he lived a good long life. I'm curious who else has been as fortunate to have such a long-term companion?

Wow Lance that must be some kind of record! Gizmo is only 3 so i hoping there will be many more years of fun in her!

Did he/she suffer with any kind of arthritus etc at such a ripe old age? It just shows how well you take care of them!

Thanks, yeah he suffered from arthritis and was partially blind! I hand fed him the last year of his life as he could barley move. He got up in the morning came out and basked until I picked him up. But he was in good spirits and not in any pain. He loved to sit on my shoulder but the best is when he propped his head on up next to mine! Ill have to dig out the old memory stick and see if I can find pictures of him. Miss you ol boy!! :roll:
