  1. We encourage you to post these pet related things: pictures, habitats, questions, and anything else pet related.
  2. The Critter Forum is for all ages.  Absolutely no adult content. Users will be banned and reported.
  3. Be kind.  Everyone here wants to learn, and become better care givers for their pets.  Help others by sharing tips, knowledge, products, and tutorial videos.
  4. Be respectful of other people’s opinions and ideas. It’s okay to disagree and have different opinions, but present your case tactfully.  Everyone here wants the same thing: good health and happiness for their pet.
  5. All posts must be relevant to the selected category.  For example, don’t discuss corn snakes on the bearded dragon category.
  6. All threads that are nothing but a ‘test’ or an ‘ad’ will be deleted.
  7. If you share irrelevant links, your comment or post will be deleted.  If the links are relevant to the thread, that’s fine. Please use your best judgment here.
  8. Please don’t use affiliate links in this forum. When you externally link, do it because you want to help someone, not because you see a quick opportunity to make some cash.
  9. Try to add value when you post. Don’t just type something along the lines of “What they said.”
  10. Use proper grammar to the best of your ability. We understand that English may not be everyone’s main language, but make an attempt. You won’t get in trouble for a misplaced comma or for typos, but it would help everyone if you could make sure everyone understands your message.

He has a rather large personality for such a small dragon and is quite the diva when it comes to eating. Usually he will only eat insects if he is being hand(tweezer) fed and you tease him in just the right way. However, crickets are the exception to that as he absolutely loves to chase them all over his cage. If one manages to slip into a hiding spot, he will sit there and wait for it to come out so that he can snatch it up. Both Eros and I would absolutely love to win the year supply of crickets to ensure that he remains a happy bearded dragon.
