Her beard is huge! Beauty is so laid back that we never get to see her puff it out but I bet it would be really cool to see. :D

I've never seen THAT orange of a beard before...wow! I really do like little Myron and Spring's coloring... Some of the trans of hypo-trans beardies I see I'm not such a fan of, but when it's just right, you can be made a believer. :D Congrats

Beauty's beard has gotten more orange over the last 6 months, too. It's a contrast to her citrus coloring. Thanks for the compliments on Myron! My husband has been waiting for this pairing from Brenda to lay and hatch - he just knew he would want a baby from them. His beard is always a little grey, too. He's very different looking!

Becky08 - THANKS! :)

She's a tough and spunky little girl. I love how when you say her name she will look straight at you. :D She learned her name quickly.

Introducing two new babies to our home, both from ReptiCon Tampa which was yesterday. :D

This is Mecca, a teensy little girl, hatch date June 1st. :shock: I know, I never, ever would come home with a baby this young, but we know the breeder and felt comfortable taking her at the show. She is part of her rainbow citrus tiger line (I hope I got that right) and she is very sweet. She is very young and fragile and super delicate. We have hatchling silkworms that are about 1/2" long that she seems to like. She also likes baby roaches. :D

And then we found a little baby from Cheryl at Rio Reptiles, and couldn't pass up little Lemon Drop. Her hatch date is May 16th, and her Dad is also Brutis' Dad. She is citrus hypo HET trans, and has a creamy white belly. She loves the baby silkworms, but gives up chasing roaches. Lazy girl!

Here is a pic of both Mecca and Lemon Drop. Mecca is on the left and Lemon Drop is on the right.

We already knew we were coming home with a hatchling, because it was a trade, and that is how we got Mecca. Otto picked her out. Lemon Drop was not expected and I chose her. Mecca was actually my trade, so I am her caretaker, and Otto was in line for the next dragon after that, so he will take care of Lemon Drop. :lol:

So we have new little bitty babies in the house! :shock: :D :mrgreen:

That was so weird - I guess I had flickr-FAIL. LOL

It's a lot to do, playing slave to all of these littles. So much poop. :shock: :lol: Let's just say I take 30 minutes in the morning to get ready for work. The other 2 hours is spent on all of the reptiles. :oops: Evenings...? We do spend most of the late afternoon/evening bathing, cleaning, feeding, handling...it's a lot.

They're so adorable and tiny...how do you make time for all of them? It's hard enough having one for me, haha.

I'm not sure how we make time for them all! We seem to always be doing something with one of the dragons when we are not sleeping or eating. LOL

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?
