I will have to check out the facebook page again. I mostly go there to see everyone's pictures. I check this and the repticzone uro page every day though. I just love seeing everyone else's lizards. I also love to watch beardie and uro videos on youtube. I just love lizards I guess! If you haven't seen it yet.. you have to watch the uromastyx belly tickle / belly rub videos on youtube. It's SO cute.

Porcelain tile sounds perfect. Put up some pictures when you have it all figured out!

I will have to check out the utube videos and I will definitely put up some pictures once I have it figured out.

I have a question about flowers. I have roses here and I read that they like them. Do I just feed them the pedals or do I take the whole head of the flower and give it to them? They didn't seem very impressed about the pedals. Same thing for other flowers of course.... do I feed the whole flower or just the pedals?

With roses, I feed him just the petals because the green part of the rose is very tough. Hibiscus you can feed the whole flower. Dandelions you can feed the whole flower. Pansies - whole flower.

I found that Gordo was not much interested in rose petals either. He likes dandelions and pansies. I have not tried hibiscus because I don't have any. You have to make sure that there are no pesticides. That's why I don't feed him anything that wasn't grown on my property. I also avoid the rose bush that's in the corner of my yard because I don't know if the neighbors use pesticides.

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
