It's been awhile and some people might not even know how Iris is but here's Iris it's been 6 months since she was born! Were getting a stool check up soon and she due for a new Repti-sun. Unfortunately she's picky and she has a bunch of superworms she wont eat and crickets she got bored of so now I have to buy her Dubias again since we gave away the colony. Well here's a couple pictures!

Thanks all, I was hoping she get bigger but it doesn't seem like she will. Unless beardies are capable of a dramatic growth spurt after 6 months of age still?As of now she sits at 16 inches, we also bought some new stuff for her enclosure, i'll post some pictures up when we're finished!

They don't stop growing until they're a full year old, then they can still grow in length some & that's when they really start growing in width, too, their 2nd year. Most of my dragons, they're all over 2 yrs old, grew another inch in their 2nd year and put on alot of weight. So no, she's not even past her full growth yet. She's going to be a really big beardie :D

I just saw Stella she looks great and huge :shock:

She's such a beautiful beardie & love the driftwood!

Thank you!I actually thought she be really bright orange but she pretty much did the opposite and all the spots I thought wouldn't gain color became orange and all the parts I thought would be orange turned almost yellow :shock: The driftwood I got a good deal from my local exotic reptile shop me and him sometimes trade superworms, silkworms, and driftwood. The one I really want their is going for $150 though!

It's funny how that works. I have a beardie that was more red, then turned yellow, more a burnished gold, but a really pretty yellow when he's sleeping. I also have a bright orange/yellow/red beardie, my little Didi, who's 6, but he's not as bright as your girl!

I am just smitten with Iris! I want to snuggle her so bad, LOL. :oops:

I love the look on her face in this pic - she looks like "DIS FOR ME?!? I LIKE DIS. I SITS ON IT."

Finding the perfect piece of driftwood is SUCH a challenge! It's definitely not one of those things you can just buy off the internet. First it has to be the right size, then it has to be sturdy, not look stupid, and have acceptable basking angles, etc etc etc... Not to mention how EXPENSIVE a dead hunk of tree is! I need to find another sizeable piece for Stella, but I'm just not sure I'm up to the challenge yet!

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!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
