The first pic is the day I picked her up at FedEx April 16th the 2nd is this morning.
It's stunning how fast they grow. She doesn't hardly have the hatching face any more, her head is already becoming triangular, and her nose has started to elongate.
If you notice, I'm still holding her tail to take the picture. She is still very SPICEY. I can feed her (she eats from my hand without being a bit bashful and will climb right into my hand for a hornworm), I can clean her habitat, I can clean the poop up, ect without her even moving. She just watches with a HUGE amount of curiosity. The instant I try to hold her she turns into a hybrid of the Tasmanian Devil and Speedy Gonzalez lmao 🤣

Thank you for sharing! :)
Indeed, the second one looks already like "typical beardie, but in small" :D
I love those comparison photos.
Regarding holding her: My Taco was not different. I had a thumb on his back for a (very) long time...
I can't hold her like that, I'd have to squeeze to hard because she trys and does wiggle loose, but her tail just a tiny bit of pressure keeps her still.

It' the better option then indeed :)
(For Taco using the thumb was fine as he didn't try to escape with a wiggling motion. He more tried to jump off after a while for exploring and at a certain size I just felt he's too small for that (400+ g dragon going exploring while I'm supervising is fine, but lizardlike small creature that easily fits into something is no-no) - with the thumb he didn't do so or if he started I could easily feel it and stop him by gently putting all my palm around his back.)

Yeah I don't let Zsa Zsa explore yet either. The house I'm in right now is 120 years old. To many sketchy places.

Of all my dragons she is the only one that ever hissed at me. She gapes, hisses, flares, the whole barrage lol.

I agree with @ChileanTaco, ZsaZsa does look like a small version of an adult dragon. :love:
I can't imagine how this cute little dragon can run away and hiss at you.:)

Can imagine that (the one we lived before was also that old, so many cracks and loose something and such). Here it's also that I would fear a small dragon gets behind bookshelves or other heavy furniture that's hard to remove, under something where I would have to use a broom... or even into vents (kitchen has some vents in the walls at floor level that must stay open, not rare in regions with a very warm/ hot climate) and generally that having to catch a dragon might destroy trust. Adult dragon (calmer, less/ not fearful, more to grab, and now much too big he could ever fit into these vents), it's easier.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
