We never expected to get another dragon, but our neighbours next door wanted to give away Cleo, as he was called. We'd babysat him before, he's such a sweetheart. We nicknamed him Velcro because when he snuggles he never wants to go back to his viv, he hangs on as if he's made out of velcro.

So here he is. Today was his first day with us. He ate 13 supers and ate some squash, not bad for the first day he was here. He's only in a 30 gallon tank, which will be ok for now. He's 18" long but weighs only 200g. We figure he's probably 2 yrs old. Our neighbours rescued him last fall, they found him and a female (which they named Puff) on Craig's list. They were in a 30 gallon dirty tank, with sand and a huge log that took up 1/2 the space in the tank. Leo was at the bottom, he was sooooo skinny. He's gained weight, but never got the attention he deserved. I took some pics today, but will take more tomorrow. I think he remembers our place as didn't get stressed as I expected. No stress marks at all. When we let him run around the living room, he noticed our girls and immediate black beard, so his hormones are working!

He had a bath this morning, had a big poop, no smell, so not worried about parasites.

So here are a few pics, he's a yellow & dark gray, light gray colour.

Under the communal power sun in the living room:

Discovering there are girls in those tanks up above, he has a great black beard for such a skinny boy:

On the couch, he's got a pretty diamond pattern on his back:


Hope you enjoy
Deb and my six dragons :D :shock: :shock: :shock: :cry: :cry: :( :love5:

Yes, Liz, that's the look I get all the time, just wondering how he's going to manage when Titan gets his own set up. I can see it now "No, No, NO, that's my ramp, put me BACK" :lol:

Thanks Lindz, they've been eating well and keeping their weight up, even Titan wasn't too fazed with me feeding him. Leo hardly fought me this am when I was doing his meds in his mouth and Titan gobbled down the Baytril as usual. They all had baths yesterday, so today it's only Titan for baths. I'll just give the rest their Acidophiluz before eating. So not a rushy morning for once.

Once again, great pics of the boys!

Titan's head looks great! You can hardly see the horrific burns anymore!

Brittani, King Didi is a good title for him :lol:

Thanks Gina, Lori and Holly, it was wonderful to see that awful gray stuff come off of Titan's head. And I'm hoping, with his next shed, the rest comes off, too. Tomorrow is the last day of Baytril, YEAH, so hopefully that means his big appetite comes back and he gains weight again. I fed him 20 roaches this am, then Didi helped himself to a few once I got Titan back into his tank and I left the rest in the bowl but Titan didn't eat anymore today. He pooped in his bath but it was all urate, which is understandable, he's not eaten a lot the last week. And the bleeding is almost done, just a drop and nothing hanging out, which is great. I think I'll keep doing his bath later in the morning, see if he'll start pooping in the bath regularly.

So I didn't realize it was going to be cold today, it was nice and sunny this am when I left, so left windows open a crack, but the wind was wicked, when I got home the temp in the living room was down to 68F, so now the heat is back on, hadn't used it for a few days. Oh well, spring is still roaring!

Yay, another nice, sunny day... And not near as windy!!
Hope you get to hang out outside with your guys today.

Wondering if I could add you as a friend on here?

BlueMorpho, do you have a thread here, too? Just send me the link, then I'll be able to talk to you there, too. If you have a Facebook page, friend me there, too. Deb Buss is the name on Facebook. I'm not sure if there's a way to friend on here, like Facebook, at least I'm not aware of one. We use PMs to send messages back and forth that you don't want on a thread.

And Liz, isn't that the cutest little beard? He's been like that ever since he started Baytril, but he had his last dose this am, so I'm hoping his tummy will recover. Haven't seen a poop yet, but his eating has been so much less; I'll be feeding him again tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes. He's supposed to start Panacur once they get it into the vet's office, I haven't heard, but I'm wondering if the Baytril did the trick. May just wait a couple of weeks & get another fecal before doing panacur, I'll see how it goes.

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

Just Hazel in a filter I need so not posting on forums.
On a quest for pristine beats, I struck gold during a casual coffee shop jam session. The music maestro there ushered me to VOLUMO — New generation electronic music store for pro DJs. Revel in its vast array of tracks and rejuvenate your playlists!
I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
