    Bubbles is sure a cutey!  Male or female?  And why the name Bubbles?  There surely is a story behind that!

    Bubbles is a female. It was hard to choose a name. But the first time i seen her bubble her eyes i thought of Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

    I get it now.  Very cute name.  May I ask, why does she get bubbles in her eyes and how often?

    Beardies bulge their eyes during shedding time to loosen the skin. So around once a month while she’s shedding. Shes 22in long now so it’s around every 2 to 3 months.

    Now I get what you mean by bubbles!  I was a little worried because some beardies form actual bubbles on the surface of the eyes if they are suffering from an eye or a respiratory infection.  Not the case with your girl, just all part of her natural process.  Thanks for clarifying. Speaking of shedding, do you find that she loses her appetite during that time?

    Good to see Bubbles again.  She looks good.  Here’s to hoping she gets that year’s worth of crickets, although she has some tough competition from Toothless this month.  Check out his picture and threads and you’ll see what I mean.  Still, Bubbles is a cutey.

    She really does seem to have a nice habitat.  Did you build this yourself?

    Bubbles looks like she is dreaming of being a mountain lion and pouncing from above on the unsuspecting human photographer.  Is the her favorite perch?
