Some of you may remember me on the lookout for a male companion for my female Beardie, Brian. She was unwell when younger and as a result is nearly half the size she should be...
Well we had this little male at work, gangly little thing that was unwell when he was younger which also stumped his growth. He was housed with a female from the same clutch who was quite a bit bigger than him and she played the dominant one. She ended up going to a new home leaving the male by himself. I decided he'd be a perfect companion for Brian. He was only slightly bigger, only a few months younger, submissive and had always lived with another female dragon.
I ended up buying him and bringing him home. I'd planned on keeping them in separate vivs for the first 4 days and slowly introducing them but it turns out it was love at first sight and they have since been inseparable!
First meeting: (Brian left, Sally right)
Warming in the viv together (Brian left, Sally right)
Brian absolutely LOVES him and never leaves him alone lol:
Sleeping last night:
In case you're wondering about the names, Brian was named before we were able to sex her and boy did we guess wrong but she answers to her name so we never changed it. With the new male, well... may as well do it completely the wrong way round hey
DRAGON UPDATE: Still getting on swell and cuddling up to each other each night. Brian constantly sits on Sallys back. She's been a bit of a flirt the last couple days. Trying to get his attention by climbing all over him, bobbing her head and she even bit him on the back of his neck the other day. He meanwhile, isn't phased at all and ignores it all.
Brians behaviour is suggesting that she wants to mate. Dear me.
scallywag: Greetings from the Caribbean

tonib: Not sure if getting another member to post her holiday snap on the forum is a devious way of scallywag avoiding upping her post count before her planned date Nice to see a lovely sunset in these snowy times though
