Hi,

Well it's been so many years since I've had a Dragon and been on the forum but discovering it again after my guy Irwin passed away.

RIP Irwin

Been keeping reptiles since the 80's.. everything from newts and lizards collected locally as a kid to a leopard gecko and even an Iguanna in my teen years raised to a 14 year old adult from hatchling. Until recently I also had an Oscellated Skink pictured below named "slick" who far exceeded his lifespan and just this year passed away as well. I had him for 32 years!!

A few years ago just having just Slick wasn't enough and was feeling nostalgic of the days i had my LG so I decided to get another named Sahara from David's Fine Geckos.

BUT the main reason you are probably here is that you like bearded dragon.. so here is my latest addition...

Here's a pic of the little guy..born Aug 29th. He is a zero leatherback from https://andrewsreptilesllc.com

His name is Jackson. This pic when he was 5 weeks old or so.. he's growing so fast... as they do. Look forward to sharing my journey with him. Currently working on his forever home... yeah it's pretty big!

Thanks. It's OK death is part of life. Yeah Jackson is a cute little guy. He really likes his greens too so I'm thankful to be off to a good start with him. Now just trying to tame him down. Don't let that cuteness fool you.. he loves to bite! Err :-(

When I first got Sinatra he was a biter, but he hasn't nipped at me in months now. Jackson will get there 🙂

Absolutely. When I got Irwin he was 5 months if I recall and never behaved this way so I was lucky. Jackson is the youngest I've started from and at this age i syspect they are very insecure. I swear he thinks I want to eat him lol. No buddy.. I want to feed you! I hand feed him his greens and I've can entise him to run out of cafe onto my arm to eat a hornworm.. so making progress. My gecko was the same way when young and grew out of it.. obviously I don't want an adult dragon biting on me.. now it's cute but later that is really going to hurt! Yikes🤪

I startled Sinatra awake about 2 weeks in, he laid the entire side of my thumb wide-open lol. He was 8 month's old at the time. It was entirely my fault though. Now he is a snuggle bug. He is 20 months now.
Jackson is still insecure for sure. I've raised 3 from babies, it took 2 of them a year/year and a half to really calm down, one was bold and comfortable within a couple months. With patience though they all come around. 🙂

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
