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:

Thanks Tammy, it was a big surprise not to get a call that their visit was cancelled! I hope it happens again, but I won't hold my breath.

Thanks Jolene, it's time to get back to work, I miss the people. I also have a lot of training to get done, as a lot has changed on our floor in the 3 months I've been off. I'm taking it very slowly, 4 hours this week and next to see how I manage. The blood tests I got still how very low white blood cell counts and higher than normal liver counts, so something has gone out of whack just his past year. My counts in Dec/12 are all normal. I see my family doc on Wed am and have a lot of questions.

Hi Esther, isn't he just the bomb? I'm hoping I'll see him again soon, but won't be holding my breath :roll:

Titan's memorial, long on pics:

It took me forever to put this together, computer froze a few times, darned thing. But finally got it done, it's a pictorial of his short life.

And thanks again Gina for the beautiful tribute to him.

Rest in Peace my beautiful Titan.

What a nice memorial. He looks very happy living with you and his brothers. You gave him a good life. When you find yourself grieving his lost look at this memorial and celebrate his life.

Thanks Robinlynne, that's what took me so long to put it together, I wanted it to celebrate his life, not his death. It made me feel so much better, seeing all the pictures, to know that I did give him a good life and for awhile he was a dragon with no worries. There are no pictures of him when he was very ill, I decided not to remember him like that. And it worked, I had my cry & now he'll always be embedded in my heart, like Sweetie, Loish, Issy and Angel.

Deb, that memorial is so beautiful. You chose the perfect pictures of him. I especially loved the one with his mouth open, quite a smile going on there.

I know how hard this was and it took a long time, but you should be proud, you now have a memorial that you can read and view whenever you feel the need.

Wanted to wish you good luck at your doctor's appointment tomorrow. Starting back by working just 4 hrs a day sounds like a good plan.

Deb, what a beautiful tribute to Titan and I love all the pictures of him. I am sure you miss him terribly and I know he's looking down on you smiling his beardie smile and watching over you.

That tribute to him fits him so perfectly. Very regal, but has silly moments too, just like him. I was incredibly lucky to meet him when he was healthy. And we are all lucky to have known his story too.

I just got a chance to look at Titan's memorial. The pics you chose were great! Some of them made me laugh. I am sorry you lost him but it for the best for him.

Thanks so much, everyone, for checking out his memorial, now I'll have all his good pics in one spot that I can check on him. I'm grateful for the time I did have with him & I do miss him.

HI Mike, long time no see, you'll have to let me know if you want your thread re-opened. How's Zeus and the cresties? And yes, Puff has made herself known, Gabriel is in love with her & black beards ALL day, until he just exhausts himself. He really thinks it's spring, hardly eating, I love watching him, so much energy :lol: Lonzo likes her, too. He's still got an eye for the ladies, even at 10 1/2 yrs old :D Puff has finally started to eat from her dishes, so that's really a good sign that she's getting more comfy here.

I'll let you know, Diane, what the doc says tomorrow. I managed the 4 hours, but I'm now going to take my pain pills & relax as I was very late getting home.

I also talked to my sister, I'm going to her office after work on Thursday, we're going out for dinner, then to my niece Tehya's photography show, then clean up & I'm staying over for the night. I have a vet apt with Puff at 10:30 Friday, so having my sis get me up early so I can make my way home, then I still have lots of time b4 leaving for work at 2:30. It's a lot more to organize, even working 1/2 a day. At least I got my vacation in for Mondays in July/Aug, I love my short weeks in the summer. They gave me all my vacation time I missed out on in Dec, instead of paying me out, they transferred the 2 1/2 days & added it to my vacation time this year, so I have extra, yeah!

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?
