Beardie Gets A New Home

Yes, I have bearded dragons :) my son is an adivid reptile lover, we have had beardies, as most like to call them, Leopard Geckos, turtles, snakes, and much more over the past few years.

Here are some pictures of my son (Todd) bearded dragon, Amelia, and my daughter (Betsy) bearded dragon, Dash.

Amelia  



Dash    

Both are about 3 years old now, we got them both when they were just a few months old. At that age they measure about 2 to 3 inches without their tail.

Well this weekend we had the fun of upgrading Dash's tank, he has been in a 20gal tank and he is way too big for that small of a tank so Saturday we upgraded him to his new 40gal tank.

Dash's old home - 20gal you can see not much room

Setting up the new 40gal tank

Dash's New Home and he LOVES it :)


He is so much happier now, he use to be aggressive and I was really worried. If you put your hand in his tank he always attacked your hand. And Beardies are very docile and mellow reptiles, they are the best reptile for any beginner. Even a 5 year old can handle them :)

Once he was in his new home, he is now happy and doesn't even try to come toward your hand or even attack it :)

Just wanted to share a bit more bout myself and some of our fun times together, :)

Thanks

  5. I like reptiles as long as they aren't in attack mode. LOL They are interesting creatures. We encourage the lizards around here. They keep the insect population down. Some of the lizards have beautiful coloration. Go Beardies!

  7. My son, Ian has had a bearded dragon for about 10 years now. His name is Hank. He doesn't do much, but Ian loves him!

  8. I'm with Granny: I'd be too afraid. Hard to believe that they are docile. But happy to know the little guy has more room to play in and is a happy boy.

  12. uniquecozytreasures - I am not much for reptiles. My boys used to scare me with toy fake ones when they were little. I guess they just wanted to see if they could get a rise out of me(lol).
