Talking Wink's Picture Thread!!

Instead of making a new thread every time I want to post new pics of Wink, I thought I would just make a massive thread of Wink pictures, so i can keep them all together and everyone can see his progress.


I brought him home on August 11th, 2009. He was about 5-6 inches long.
Here he is the morning after I got him:




Here he is on the 17th, hanging out on my thumb. This is still one of my all-time favortite pics of him!




September 22nd, and 9 inches long:



October 5th... The last picture I took of him where he was still small enough to be on my thumb!




November 29th... Im pretty sure he was 12 inches.




And the most recent pics, January 14th, at 15 inches and 6 months old!

Thanks everyone!
Winks kinda small for his age, so Im guessing he will be about 18 inches full grown. Id be suprised if he got much over that. Most can get up to 2 feet long, and even bigger. So I will have myself a little pocket sized beardie! I saw some really cute full grown owns at the reptile store (they take in unwated reptiles) and they were not much bigger than Wink, but super cute and chubby with even bigger heads. I wanted them, LOL! <3
I have to give Wink his deworming meds today, so well see how that goes. The vet gave him te first dose, so I havent tried giving it to him yet.

Oh, its because he is originally from Petco, and because of his issues when he was a baby. Petco animals obviously have aweful breeding, and genetics play a big role in beardie size. Any beardie you get from a chain store will be alot smaller than a beardie you get from a reputable breeder.
They also wont grow when they are sick or stressed out, so Wink eye infection and not wanting to eat set him back too.

He wants to be a super star celebrity beardie one of these days, so as his slave, I must help him achieve his dreams.
... Otherwise he will hire Smudge to kill me in my sleep.
They dont put up with unproductive slaves very well.
LOL!
And Im hoping his little story will help keep people from supporting Petco. So, I think he would approve!


And thanks for the compliments!

I re-did Winks viv so he would get closer to his UVB light! I made him a basking platform out of a flower pot and a slate tile LOL!











Hes 16 1/4 inches now, and 7 months old! If I hold him on my hand, with his nose at my finger tips, his tail reaches the crook of my arm! Hes getting to be pretty big! Im guessing he will end up being around 19-20 inches as an adult, so he will be a fairly average size.
He been having a real nasty time with intestinal parasites, but he is getting better now. The meds were really hard on him, so he was on a hungar strike for a few days... Thus the slow growth the past few weeks. He wont eat crickets anymore (Thank God!), so he eats super worms now. Still hates salad though!

Jess,

You've done awesome with him. Other Dragons dream of living the "Life of Wink".

My only suggestion would be that you save up for an infrared thermometer and get rid of the one with the wires. Animals have an amazing ability to get themselves tangled up in the things you'd least think possible. Consequently, I try to remove wires and such wherever possible.

...plus, the infra red thermometer looks cooler and is more fun to play with (two very important features IMO).

Bob
