We were lucky, they both survived and thrived but luckily we haven't problems again.
Oh man. I figured you had a lid! Yeah these guys love to get out. My albino ACF some how got through a less than 1/2 inch gap in my glass lid (I've since covered it with tape). I tore my tank apart looking for the little guy and I found him under my lazy boy looking all sad.

He took a good 4 foot fall and is doing just fine, these are truly the cockroaches of the amphibian world lol..

I once had a python who was an escape artist. He wasn't mine, exactly--he belonged to a roommate, but we all took care of him. He was an enormous snake--I could barely hold him up when he was wrapped around my shoulders and waist. I can't even hazard a guess as to how much he weighed.

One day we're all chillin' in the living room, watching tv, drinking beers like college kids do, and we hear *thumpTHUMPthumpitythumpTHUMP*.

Turns out Corona had escaped from his giant tank and decided to go for a slither. Somehow, in a very ungraceful and unsnakelike manner, he managed to fall down the stairs.

On another occasion we found him wrapped up in a huge fake tree that resided in the living room.

There was a baby albino python in the house, too. I used to wear him to lecture on warm days. He liked being a bracelet and a hair accessory the most.

We had a cornsnake escape on us when we lived in another house. I was in the next room and all of a sudden I hear my wife call me in that shrill emergency voice. I ran into the room to see the juvie corn wrapped around our cockatiel bird in it's cage. I hurridly unwrapped the juvie by the tail and the bird was fine, albeit a bit shaken up.

Before I met my wife, I had my ball python at my girlfriend's apt, and he decided to play houdini. Unfortunately she had to leave that weekend due to the lease being up. I always wondered what happened to that snake...and the new leasers who may have found that 4 foot long thang in their apt!

I use to own and bred bearded dragons, 2 boas, 1 rhino iguana and a savannah monitor. Ended up moving to Italy and could not import them there. Everyone but the dragons went to my trusted local pet store. The dragons went to a friend in Florida.

Also had a two headed bearded dragon hatch but only lived for 4 days. I couldn't get it to eat


All but 2 bearded dragons died He thought keeping them in natural sunlight is good for them. FORGOT that black plastic bins absorb lots of heat and poof.

I did not name them!


Miss Fiona RIP VERY Proud of this one.




Mr Joose, not sure what happen to him. Last I heard he had a parasite and he wouldn't take to a vet.




This big head is Ghost Face Killa RIP



Little Miss Sick Girl, She was sickly for 6 months couldn't get her to eat or anything then things turned around!




Boa#1 I tend not to name my pets lol


Boa#2


Bob the Savannah!


Rhino Iguana

Your redtails are beautiful as is the savannah. Are those beardies sandfire?

Joose is a jemfire red/cawley red/orange.
His daddy

His mommy


Fiona is 50% Citrus and 50% Red. Sister to Bricky of Draggin Tails Inc in Florida.
Her daddy

Her mommy (sorry bad picture. It's really small :-/)

Her sister Bricky



Sick girl is a red by G&M dragons of California. I guess they are claiming their own red.

The two headed is citrus and ghost face is a normal.

I had some Dragon's Den sand fire but didn't like them. They didn't color up very well after 3 months so traded them for Sick Girl.

Yay! A reptile sub-forum - look at all those beautiful beardies! I have 2 leopard geckos, Aragorn and Arwen, and a bearded dragon named Zelda. I don't have many pics of the geckos, but they look like leopard geckos and here's a pic of Zelda on my Australian Shepherd Dusty. They're both Australian, I figured, so why not? No beardies or dogs were harmed in creating this picture.

I've had blue-tongued skinks (my girl had 3 babies - live babies - they don't lay eggs - just running around the cage one day), leaf-tailed geckos (so very cool, they bred too), and veiled chameleons, but I'd have to say the beardie is my favorite

About 5 inches. Has been that size since I got him. Eats blood worms maybe once a week. The tank is so established I think he finds other critters to snack on in between meals.
