Baby bearded dragon by AbyssinalPhantom Baby bearded dragon by AbyssinalPhantom
Smuggled a bearded dragon into my dorm room today. I was going to do it next week but I was too excited. So now I must keep him a secret to all except for the weekend care takers that'll look after him when I go home.


Not sure if its male or female, but I've named it Akirma (ah keer ma). This is my first reptile and I hope it'll be a good experience!

Cute little guy. They are good pick for first time reptile owners. I have one, and they grow really fast. You should be able to tell if it is male or female within 6 months as they mature

Yeah, and I'll try to help with any question you might have

I do know one thing, odds are the breed you got likes to climb. Also if you start when they are young, by having them lay on your shoulder, eventually they will love laying there when you have them out of the tank. But start that about a month after when you first got it

ok thanks for the heads up. Right now im just trying to get the little guy used to my hands and trying to pick him up. He likes to be petted so far, but we're still working on the handling part. Next time im at the pet store ill buy a good climbing branch for him.

You're welcome

Yeah, it will take some time for the little guy to get used to being handled. My friend Dan owned a Bearded dragon before I got mine, it lived a full life. He did say that they tend to like having the top of their head petted with just a finger. Thought it might be best to do that when he is bigger since I remember how my finger was as big as Mimring's head when he was little

That is so badass! I mean, it would be badass enough to smuggle a pet rat or something into a no-pets dorm and keep them a secret, but a bearded dragon? Even better XD We had a brother and sister bearded dragon as class pets in 8th grade. They were always doing these hilarious head-bobs at each other and sometimes they tried to get it on, but we never kept the eggs because, ya know, inbreeding ^^; Bearded dragons can be pretty amusing :P
Aughhhh, I really want a small pet in college D: I was thinking a rat or a gecko, but I don't know if I'd be brave enough to smuggle one in. I'll miss my cat and dog so much, and I'm gonna need some animal companionship to not go insane. Good luck with Akirma! He's hella cute <3

oo a gecko would be cool! Im more of a reptile person than a rodent fan, so i'd always recommend a lizard. Yeah i miss my animals too, thats why i smuggled my little guy in. But i also live in a single, so i have no room mate to rat me out to my RA. And thanks for the luck. :D

Yeah, I do love geckos <3 Ahhhh, why are they so cute?!? I can only imagine how much I'm gonna miss my kitty cat sitting on my lap and getting in the way as I try to do homework :'( And damn, how did you get a single??? I hear it's nigh impossible to not have a roommate as a freshman :O

my building is brand spankin new. So new that they didnt have it finished for like 2 months after we all moved in. The workers didnt even know people were living in the building XD. Its a building made exclusively for bio majors, so that could be some of the reasons i got in a single

Lol you little sneaks XD I hope they have buildings made exclusively for bio majors wherever I end up going! I'd love to have a single, although having a roommate would give me a head start on making friends...something I'm not too great at ^^;

im sure you'll be fine at making friends. The best part about college is that everyone who goes usually doesnt have one, so they're also on the hunt for friends.

Heh, I hope you're right! I guess it's different from high school that way. Hopefully I'll get a nice roomate and that'll make things a bit easier :P
