Yeah.. I guess I never assume fish people are possibly reptile people too lol.. It's a really small amount that are oddly enough.
I wish I snapped a pic of the most absurdly saturated day glow fluorescent orange dragon I'd ever seen when at the exotics vet a couple weeks ago . I was so amazed I forgot to even ask the morphs crossed that made that beautiful creature . Was a hypo citrus tiger mixed with something amazing id imagine.

The red bulbs cause eye problems .. She doesn't need to use that one . It's stress inducing from the studies I've read too .

Oh I love my frilled dragons but don't ever really expect them to take to you at first unless they were handled constantly and highly socialized before you met them. They're hard to handle at first till you get used to their crazy ways lol.. They bond very closely to their owners but it's one of those earned things not just automatically given . I kinda like that .. Unfortunately my female chose my son to bond the closest to but my male adores me. Both much easier to handle then the first couple months . Interestingly my dog has decided she trusts my female who is 10x bigger but is the tiny boy is terrifying to her lol. It's funny to watch a pitbul turn to stone at the site of a 70gram little reptile lol . (30-35grams at the end of March ! His health battle has finally turned around and is gaining weight for the first time since I or his previous owner had him! Thank god for modern meds and great vets )

I remember hearing something about that in the past but could never find anything conclusive on it. Personally I wouldn't even run night lights, I don't have any on my python tanks just heat pads. When I did I ran black light not red but snakes eyes are different than the beardies so it wouldn't effect them anyway.

That's pretty cool. Hopefully I can eventually get her into somethin a little bigger and more rare but she just loves beardies personality. If it were up to me we'd be bringin home a black throat monitor tomorrow lol. That's cool yall have got a good local scene out there too. A lot of people I talk to online are stuck with trash.

Talked to my breeder buddy today and he was sayin the red light should be fine. Said people will run those red lights for heat along side the UVB light during the day time which is incorrect and can cause that photo kerato conjunctivitis. He also said the coil UVB bulbs have escalated eye issues but as long as u run a white basking bulb with your UVB (assuming it's not a coil) in the day and keep the red one to night use it shouldn't cause any eye problems.

I'm still gonna tell her to drop the night light all together though... Tank stays well warm enough through out the night and if it didn't she can slap a pad on there for 18 bucks.

No need for pad plus beardies can't sense hear in their belly area and can burn themselves without knowing it. A CHE is the only thing good for night use if really needed . I have temp probes and a couple IR heat sensor guns and the temp never drops at night to an unsafe level .. But I don't know where you live and how you keep your house . Yes I assumed you were using during day .. Inconclusive studies on wether it interrupts their sleep patterns . So I wouldn't worry .

Ahh monitors ! I soooo want an argus monitor one day .. One day

A person I know was trying hydro therapy on hers to strengthen his legs .. She rescued him.. Well lazy bum decided pools are for chillin! Lol . She said I could use her pics. Well loved argus . Silly thing

Yeah I only use pads on the rear glass of tanks, lots of stuff susceptible to belly burns.

That thing is awesome! Lol just loungin in the pool.

The little citrus sandfire is comin along and startin to get that orange... We're probably gonna try to breed it with a red tiger or a red leatherback to keep it darkened down if this one get's light.
The GTP's had a shed now too. Things are goin well.

Wifey's been breakin down more and more with the reps so I'm already looking at a lizard for myself lol. There's TONS of stuff in town right now to choose from so I'm kinda tryin to make up my mind if I want something that'll get massive or something more manageable until we buy a house.

Small stuff I've looked at are armadillo lizards, red fire skinks, northern blue tongue skinks, moroccan and ornate uromastyx, frilled dragons, green ameiva, emperor flat rock lizards, clown and butterfly agama, just about every gecko known to man, and a few others i'm sure i'm forgetting... I'm leaning towards the blue tongue skinks in this group.

Big stuff I've looked at are nile monitors, asian water monitors, roughneck monitors, black throat monitors, argus monitors, mangrove monitors, columbian tegu, argentine tegu, and also a few others i'm probably forgetting. Outta this group i'd really like to pick up an argentine monitor, which will happen regardless if it doesn't happen now lol.

Also checked out some dwarf caiman and captive bred alligator snapping turtles. I really dig the snappers.


Stay tuned for the decision in the coming week/weeks.

Oh yay !
If I recall correctly my reptile vet last time we chatted mentioned how much better to keep the Colombian tegus are vs the argentine ones . I think she said they tend to be more personable . I still want the argus monitor though when it comes to big boys

As for the smaller ones .. Frilled dragons !!!!! Every reptile friend I have that has finally caved and gotten one swears they are absolutely their favorite reptile they e ever owned . I got a new tattoo a week or two ago and the artist darn near fell out when he found out I own 2 of them. His died 5yrs ago and he still misses him . He even will touch up any of my older tattoos for free if I just bring mine in for him to play with lol, they're extremely intelligent . Recent tests have ranked them at 3rd most intelligent reptile that has been tested so far.

Your vet is right but it's the other way around. Columbians tend to be a lot more aggressive than the argentine do. And they're like 1/3-1/2 the price. I don't know if that applies to the red argentine though, I've only seen it bein discussed about the black and whites.

And yeah I dig the frilled for sure. My buddy Byron owns JAKL reptiles outta Denver and he keeps them, super cool. This is one of his right here.





We'll see what happens.
