My Dragon Dozo was hatched on 7/02/12. I was able to bring him home on 7/31/12. Up until now I always measured him from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail so I can't really give you his body length. Dozo gets weighed daily, usually right after his morning poo and before he gets to eat. So, he's literally weighed without anything in his stomach or his intestinal tract to get his true body weight. Every single day since I brought him home we have logged his temperature when he wakes up and periodically throughout the day, we log his weight, we count and log the quantity of bugs he eats at each feeding, we estimate how much greens he takes in and yes, we log every single time he poo's, bath's, sheds, Vet visits (he's had 3 fecal tests) everything on this little Dragon goes into his log book!

We have 4 dragons, have had them for a month, except the baby we have had her since Dec. Her hatch date was Oct 1. The other three are rescues.
We just started weighing them weekly, so this is the first result, and in a few weeks I will give you an update on a full month, growth and weight.

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
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?
