When Snickers runs off the carpet she has learned it's slick so she throws herself into a drift like a sprint car lol.
I was actually suggesting to put his habitat so that he can see outside. Two of mine absolutely love having theirs in the window. Enough so that the new habitat i just bough is out in the garage with the glue drying on the window I'm putting in lol.

That actually makes me feel a lot better. I figured he must be capable of understanding the surface was slick. The way he just kept slipping over and over I was starting to question though.

So hopefully he was either enjoying skating around or was just being stubborn and with practice will eventually acknowledge the reality that is traction.

Ah I see, that makes sense and I did see your plans for the windowed enclosure. Unfortunately my daughter's bedroom only has the one window and there's no way to really make it work so his enclosure faces it.

That window let's in way too much heat in the afternoon to do somthing like you're doing, and I don't think she'd want to lose it to Beebz anyway.

He does have a somewhat decent view of her television though. She used to watch stuff with him and said he'd pat attention sometimes. Now she steals the TV in my room because it is bigger! Maybe I'll put on something for him and see if that catches his interest.

I have to be careful with Sinatra's window to, it faces west. I only have 6 inches or so overlapping the window so he don't overheat.
Youtube has some videos that are 8 or 10 hours long of stuff like aerials from drones or hikes in the forest ect. I used to play them for my guys through the day. I just muted the "soothing" music lol.

Tried the drone video today. He did seem to watch it for a while. Later we went and played for a while.

He seemed to enjoy that, so I hoped he would be in a good mood come dinner time... :cautious:

He was mad it was roaches for the second day in a row.

And is now in his favorite sulking spot where i suspect he will remain until lights out.

I bet if someone had asked you before you got him if a little lizard could have that much personality and attitude, you would have said no way lol.

I certainly wouldn't have expected the pickiness. It's like having a 3 year old again where one day they love spaghetti and the next week they start crying when they see the pot.

He had a good day today and spent some time exploring

He's very proud of himself here as it took him a couple attempts to work up the courage to climb high enough to see out the window.

He's taken to spending about half his days in his hide. I'm not sure if he's thinking about brumating or is put off by the changing seasons and the storms we've had or if somthing else Is going on in his lizard brain, but for whatever reasons some days he just doesn't want to come out.

I'm hoping it's not brumation as I'd worry about him being so young but I guess he's big enough if that's what his body is telling him to do.

I've cut down his feeding to every other day and cut his portions back from what I was feeding before. Partly because even if he's not a year yet he's definitely adult size and partly because he's not been eating his greens very well the past couple weeks and I'm hoping he will do better if he's a bit hungrier.

I don't think he's overweight (opinions in the pics posted appreciated) but also don't think he'll suffer from missing a couple meals.

I've left his temps in the 105-110 range because on days he feels love basking he will sit there for hours without gaping and is more active than when I had them down around 100. I'm going to try to swap to a surface that holds heat better as I feel like when he lays down on the platform it cools under him. Thinking of gluing a sandstone paver across the top of what he has now.

Wow he is a big boy, he may end up giving my big ol boy a run for his money lol.
The sandstone is good for nail maintenance also, so win/win

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?
