Hello everyone !! My name is Abigail and I am the mother of a beautiful silkie named Charmander.

She was a present for my birthday and met her at a reptile shop.

I found out about her story of not having a family that can care to her very specific needs and I immediately felt the need to take her home.

She is too boujee to eat on her own so when I’m gone for work, she spends the day leaning against her log or basking on her rope.

Charmander also makes sure to get to the highest point of every Croc each time she finds one.

Hi !! That means that she is too entitled to eat on her own. She chooses to ignore food unless I’m around her 😂. In terms of lighting, I bought the full enclosure set up from the reptile shop. I have an exo-terra compact top canopy with two 75W bulbs for UVB.

She is very beautiful 😍
Silkies are a whole life style, my hats off to you.
As far as uvb the compacts are no good, she needs a long tube, work with @KarrieRee she can help you get your lighting on par.
Welcome to the forum Abigail and Charmander 🙂 ( The name suits her to)

I just bought her a new and bigger enclosure so I’ll definitely post on the forum when I start setting it up so I can get more assistance and feedback for my baby 😊

Welcome to the forum Charmander and Abigail.
She is a beautiful dragon. Feel free to ask anything, Silkies will need a little bit of help with shedding sometimes, so that is to be expected. :)

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
