Bearded Dragon 1st Bath

My new baby is doing a fine job shedding.

Just to make sure all the shed comes off, a warm bath helps.

Baby seems to enjoy bath time. Once bath time is over, baby gets wrapped up in a warm towel. I held my little Dragon burrito on my chest as I did some work at my computer. Baby was so comfy. I looked down and saw a sleeping dragon.😴

The snuggle time is so peaceful as baby sleeps. Lots of kisses on my dragon’s little head😘

Great bonding time for us.

New Bearded Dragon Adventures

Good evening from Gullringstorp!
My new baby is eating quite well, with a healthy appetite. With a great appetite comes growth. With growth comes shedding.

This is baby’s first shed. To help insure that shedding goes well, a warm bath is called for. I had a cute deep plastic container available for bath time. I hadn’t expected to use it so soon. I have yet held my baby but there was no way for baby to get into that bath without me taking hold and bringing baby out.

I have been hand feeding twice a day and finding opportunities to stroke baby’s back and head. Baby has found trust in me. I put on gloves just in case I get bitten. I had expected baby to run, but no. It was quite easy to get hold and carry baby to the bath. It was lovely.

Baby thoroughly enjoyed a 10 min soak in warm water. Some shed began to float in the bath water.

Baby even allowed me to stroke the beard ! Wow and with eyes closed !!

Wrapped up in a warm towel a kiss on the head and a little sweet talk, baby was gently placed back in the warm terrarium.

Dinner time. Yummy worms and crickets.

Baby was bedded down by 20:00 with a full tummy.

First shed and first bath!! That’s a full evening.



Thelma loves the plush grass even if the wind is blowing.❤️

Nanuk in the grasss

Nanuk enjoying the tall grass in the baby enclosure. A windy evening is no deterrent to Nanuk.

He looks positively wild in this enclosure with the tall grass.❤️🐐​

Tana’s Shed

Good afternoon from Gullringstorp!
Yesterday I got a rare view of my little Tana in the middle of her shed. Not sure why she was out and about in this state, but it was really interesting to see. I even witnessed her eating a portion her shed on one of her cute feet. Normally she decides which hide to go into and goes through this process in private.

Thank you Tana for this treat.


Good afternoon from Gullringstorp!
Thelma had her hunt and peck time on the grass early today because of possible rain this afternoon. 

She really enjoyed herself.

A New Home for our Bachelors 

Good afternoon from Gullringstorp!
We are so very happy to say that our 3 bachelors have found a new home. This lovely family have 39 rescue battery hens and were in much need of roosters.

Our boys will be so happy. They will divide the 39 ladies between them. I can’t wait to learn their new names and see them in their new home. They will be free range which really makes me happy. They have been in the boy’s box with a window to sit in and enjoy the fresh air. Now they will be on the grass and have the freedom they should.

Today has been a good day.

Thelma gets lots of attention. She’s such a sweetie.


Thelma’s so gentle, even kids can hold her

Tana wants a Li’l Sis Eco-Friendly Snuggle Pouch

Good afternoon from Gullringstorp!
Looks like Tana is letting me know that she wants her very own Li’l Sis Eco-Friendly Snuggle Pouch.

She really loves to snuggle inside one of the pouches on our bed. She goes all the way in and then peeks her head out for chin tickles.

Looks like I’m headed back to my sewing machine to make a gecko sized Snuggle Pouch.
