Des' my first dragon. He is really a good boy. Great attitude, loves to come out and explore, sit on my shoulder, just all around the kind of dragon I wanted for my first one.
He grew up on my lack of knowledge, has always hung strong. Mostly ate crickets when he was young, with the occasional reptiworm or silkworm. After he hit 16 inches he wouldn't touch another cricket since he had a taste for superworms.

The last few months he had given me a scare, as he has been really picky on what he wants to eat. Some days it will be superworms other days he only wanted hornworms. Then I found butterworms. He will eat these worms almost any day of the week. He is still spoiled and thinks he is king as I went through allot, babying him by hand feeding every morning and evening. This is really the only way he will eat on a good basis. He had dropped a few grams from 335 to 325 when I tried to induce tough love.

As of today, on the beginning of his own thread, I am proud to state he weighs 350g. Still @ 17.75inches in length. I believe Des to be about 1 year ~2 months old.

Here are some pictures of my oldest boy Des-

Two things:
Firstly, I put a picture up of Norris doing his best Des' impersonation. Although he lacks the muscles....don't tell him I said that..

and secondly, you need more Des pictures! We are only on the second page here! :D

Des is da man! Even his spikes have spikes! He would absolutely not be invited to a balloon animal party! But who needs those clowns any way!

Des is starting to shed today. Got and getting some more picture. Scared me when I walking into the room this morning and he looked very strange, both of his eyes lids had shed and he hadn't rubbed them yet, to get it off. Will post the pictures later. :wink:

in the first post you made on this thread, in one of the pics i noticed you had the same log/tree type thing that i have in my tank, what did you use to cover it? its becoming a pain to clean the thing because it has bark on the outside.

I went outside and scrapped all the bark off with a knife, careful you don't cut yourself. Then I had some extra reptile carpet, I cut it to fit, wrapped in around and used staple on the bottom. If this doesn't make 100% sense I can go get a couple pictures to show you. He loves it, he basks on it and hides under it. I love it cause there is no mess. :wink:

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
