My young Rockie

Postby kfc223 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 8:55 pm

Here are a couple of shots of my little buddy.

Hes CBB from Bjron's stock; and about a year and a bit old. I didn't opt for power feeding him but rather spent time "interacting" with him and feeding him on a weekly basis. I slowed down feeding during winter and am beginning to feed him at his normal routine.

Here he is when he see's the feeding tongs- he's quite a smart little guy.

And I took him out for a bit of natural sunlight.

That little face explains it all!

You are privileged to have him mate, he looks very happy.
I love how lizards recognize feeding time.

Nice stuff!

Rockies have the tendency to look "tatty" after a while with old shed skin everywhere, but your fellow looks nice and clean.

Rockies tend to eat anything and everything, so well done for not overfeeding him. He looks in very good condition.
