I got duped!

I am changing Ruby's name to Garfield!
He doesn't like me, she is a he, and now he's orange. What in the world?

Okay the first part is a lie!

You still love him 😄😄 anyways.
He will eventually bond with you, then he will be needy and you'll be wishing for these days back lmao 🤣

Oh my! Have any pics? I’d love to see a comparison
yes, click my profile and see earlier posts of Ruby. Just think of the sun, Garfield- orange. NOT RED- lol
I promise you he was red when I purchased him or was I buying him with pure love? Get it? LOL

Two of mine was like that, Ruby and Snicker Doodles were both red at the pet store. Snickers was so red i didn't think there would be any orange at all.
I think the red is an indicator of extreme stress, both of my girls were orange within the first day of coming home. I think all the people buzzing around and looking at them and stuff really stressed them out. Ruby clung to Christina for dear life all the way home, she ate like she had never had food and was bright orange within a few minutes of getting in her basking spot.

This makes total sense. WOW I didnt think of that. So this is why I AM RED these days. Well, fortunately he's living a stress free life. He and his brother just interacted again. Both were calm. One was still in the enclosure (Ruby)- Rocky was in my arms.
Ruby actually ran to the door- Ruby is sneaky, well so is Rocky- I dont trust them. They are probably telling each other telepathically, "Let's act like we are fine so we can harm each other."
Not on my watch!

Sounds like you've got their tricks figured out 😏 my two boys are kindda like that too. They are calm then all the sudden they are moving with explosive speed. Sinatra isn't to bad, but Zen, I have to watch him like a hawk.

So my family saw the video and totally didn't help. They said, "Yeah, he's orange." I said, "And guess who will never meet Ruby!" LOL
I am sitting here watching Ruby beg for bugs but he's on a greens and veggie kick today. If he could kick me, he totally would. He thinks that I don't understand his wants but he doesn't understand his needs. I know I read somewhere that their bodies need to wake up- wow, he just shut his eye on me, lol- okay, not wake up but bask a little before they eat. Ruby wakes up and runs to the food dish. Ridiculous.
I just said, "Hi"- he closed his eye again...oh he's mad MAD (no black beard).

Oh you think I am crazy CRAZY....I am just crazy.
I think Ruby is going to open his mouth and get me like a snapping turtle. I don't trust him yet.
I do but I don't.
Tickle his back legs...HA!!!
I touch it and he's so dramatic...he holds his leg in the air afterwards. It's in this video:

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?
