@AHBD Luis was hissing at my brother when he was housesitting him while I was on vacation. Unfortunately Luis was starting to want to brumate in week two and my brother kept oulling him out of his hide to put Dubias in his face, that he didn't want 🙈

@acidburn01 Nubbys weight sounds fine though. Luis is missing like an inch or so of his tail too. He's 16.5" at 350g.
How is he doing without his back legs? Isn't that really affecting him quite a lot??
Why don't you want to let your girl brumate if she likes to?

If she actually tries to brumate, we'll let her. I just stress a lot over our beardies that something like brumation would stress me out.

We're thinking he lost his feet when he was newborn or maybe even born that way. We got him when he was about two months. According to the pet store, this lady breeds them and then just dumps them on the store but the store is bad about taking care of their animals and keeps like 10 babies together in a 40g tank. So we think he might of gotten into a fight and lost his back feet. Hes missing one whole foot and one foot with maybe a chunk of it and a single toe.? It doesn't bother him at all, he is unbelievably fast, it's ridiculous. He has a slight disadvantage with climbing and gripping things but he uses his bag legs well, he uses them like spider legs, if I hold him, he'll curl them around my hand. It's wild.

Well personally I think he is precious. I remember when you got him, I knew he would live a good life.

Good to know he has adjusted and manages without his back feet :)
Brumation is very natural but I agree with you and my boy scares me still. It's always a reliev when I take him out and his weight is constant :)

Yeah, we thought she was sick because she stopped eating almost entirely but the odd thing is she's still gaining a little bit of weight. Not much, like only a handful of grams but we figured she'd be loosing weight.

And now, Nova has been real dark and streaky and just kinda laying around the last few days. She'll eat a few worms but not like she usually does. 😩😩 I can't win with my scale babies 😅😅

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?
