So last night I had Zen outside. The neighbors kids rode by on their bikes. The little girl (6ish) nearly crashed trying to look at him. Her mom and boyfriend were setting on the sidewalk in the folding camping chairs watching the kids play on thier bikes. I could see her peeking around her mom still watching Zen. When my company left I walked over and asked if she would like to pet him. I've never seen a little kid light up so much. After a minute the mom asked if she could hold him. Zen for his part was loving the extra attention. The little girl ran off, after a minute she came back dragging her little camping chair. She asked to hold Zen also. She loved on him and talked to him. It was getting to be dusky dark, Zen climded under her chin and wiggled in. That little girl laughed with absolute glee.
Her bother has been asking for a puppy, but it turns out the little girl is allergic to them. I explaned that reptiles are great for people with allergies. When I left the little girl was begging her mom for a beardie. I heard her promise to do chores, eat all her food, do good at school. It was a riot lol. I did go back to tell the mother a little about their care and that I would be happy to help her get a habitat set up properly. I kindda suspect I'll be back over there soon doing just that lol. It's amazing to watch the nervousness turn to wonder when someone gets to interact with a beardie. That has to be one of my FAVORITE aspects of keeping them!

I remembered when I introduced Hazel to my mom's daycare all the parents came in like "Now they want a Bearded dragon" it's adorable when kids beg for things especially a bearded dragon.

I'd like to go to the park and set up for my cat...
Kamo The Dragon is still half asleep; So I can't be with him right now.

I'm kind of waiting for him, it's almost 3 mos.

So I could bring the cat out there this summer and set up and bring him a toy/bring me something to do sedentarily.
That's a good idea though. I'd do a tent with my Dragon & he could be chilling out in the sun. :blob8: :blob8:

My baby has been half sleep for a month now and it's kinda sad because I normally bring her out everyday for one-two hours.

Me as well, I haven't seen them back outside, but when i do I'll take Ruby (if she is awake) or Sweet Pea out and stir the pot a little lmao. I think if she gets to hold Ruby the mom will have to give in 😉

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
