    Default Bearded Dragon eating

    I fed him some freeze dried crickets and some cut up cactus pieces, he loves them both! Hard to get crickets when it's so cold out.

    I had JUST started video taping the little bugger and my phone rang, hence the "god damnit" about 5 seconds in. I know, I'm bad for using his name when angry.

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    I wonder? Had I cut up 'ol fishy in small squares...... Hmmmm....... But I don't think that's part of their natural diet wandering around dry and desert type climates.

    Besides, I felt bad for a few hours after flushing big blue. Could have sworn I saw him move as the water was swirling. But he was upside down and deader than a doornail when I took him out of the water.

    I think Mr. Lizard might like the cactus better.

    I'll see if I can get a video of him when I so much as touch his head. Normally these dragons can be friendly. Not mine, he blows up like a balloon, and if you push your luck he will hiss at you, and push it further and it's game on - and he'll lunge at you if you stick your hand in there!!

    Too cool... there were these little Gecos all over Florida and I thought they were such cute little buggers. One day I caught one and let it lose in my apartment to eat bugs. I never saw him for awhile and then one morning I woke up and he was laying on my hip. I guess it was warm. I didn't mind. I was just glad he was still alive. He took off and I never saw him again. Probably found some hole to crawl in and split.

    Here's another video I took of him a short while ago. If you watch, he'll flatten out like a long balloon right after I touch his head. He gets even worse when I touch the rest of him. But once I pick him up, that's it, game on! He didn't hiss or jump, but I think you can see he wasn't pleased with me at the end of this video.

    He is absolutely obsessed with the lizard, and I mean true love!!

    When we first got the lizard he was a baby, and he lived in a 20 gallon fish tank that was on the floor (with a tight lid). Nero would lay on the ground on any side of it and just STARE at the poor thing. I figured he wanted to eat him, but then he would roll over on his back and reach out to the glass gently.

    Now the big cage is on the top of a dresser, and also in my sons room where the door is always shut. You can get in there easily enough, but 9 out of 10 times when you open the door to leave, that quick little bugger will fly in there. If you're outside the door, you can see what he does, he literally paws at the doorknob, and presses his nose against the crack of the door, and is in like lightning when you open it!!!

    But since he knows he's not allowed in there, he runs under the bed now! PITA!!
