 How Long Can I Keep a Komodo Dragon in a Ten Gallon?

First of all, the Dragon in question is still very small. I am only using the ten gallon as a temporary home, and I will upgrade to something larger as soon as it is no longer appropriate.
At what point will the ten gallon no longer be large enough?
How many gallons does a full-grown adult need in order to be comfortable?
And, most importantly, since the ten gallon was actually the largest I was able to even FIND... where can I buy a larger hat?

I really don’t think you have a komodo dragon as it would:
A- Be illegal
B- Be Very very irrisponsible
C- Be Unavailable
I think you have some type of monitor and you need to get it out of that tank RIGHT NOW!!! Please please please reaserch some care for your lizard!

you will only need a ten gallon. you can use it for his "forever" home, as he will be comfortable always...

though, in order to help you further, we will need the following info:
what size crickets are you feeding him? (smalls are best)
are you dusting the food items?
how many basking branches do you have for him? (small twigs will do, as thats all that will fit in a 10 gallon)
is he socialized?
temps? humidity? UVB?
water dish?
have you gotten a fecal??? (very important)

LOL.......im bored!

 How Long Can I Keep a Komodo Dragon in a Ten Gallon?

I have been feeding him average-sized cricket players. Should I switch him back to smaller ones? Those are way harder for me to catch, dammit.

Sometimes they are very dusty from playing cricket all day, but I don’t deliberately add any.

He has two multi-pronged branches, because under my ten gallon hat I have antlers, because I am a were-caribou.

He is not a Socialist; he is a Libertarian. All Komodo Dragons are Libertarians, because they are huge gun lovers.

I don’t know the temperature under there, because he keeps eating the probes.

The hat starts out very humid, because I wash it every day and then hang it on my antlers to dry.

OKay, I’ll sing too. U...V...B...G...T...O...Z... that’s as far as we got in the alphabet. Cut me some slack here; I went to an Ohio school.

I’ve been taking him to the local pool for water, instead of using a water dish. He keeps making holes in water dishes. Did I mention that Komodo Dragons like guns?

Yes, I brought a fecal into the vet’s yesterday. Turns out I was supposed to bring one from the LIZARD! Just to cover up my stupidity, I filled out another pet form saying I also had a gorilla and paid them to do a full lab analysis. Now if I want to get the meds I have to go back there dressed in an ape suit, but, hey, it’s better than looking stupid...

 How Long Can I Keep a Komodo Dragon in a Ten Gallon?

ok. first of all, stay away from the smaller players. they contain way too much uniform and could cause impaction! a little is ok, as it can be a good roughage (did i say roughage? i meant scrimmage. oh wait! thats football!!)

ahem...also, you dont want these little ones too dusty with calcium...or dirt, as it will not allow them to shed their extoskelliton (how ever you spell it!!)...er uniform and they will die! or it will cause them to make a foul. i think....

they like guns?


ok were-caribous dont have prongs! just so you know...

from what ive read on here and with alllllllllll the research ive done, because im an expert, Komodo Dragons are usually Republicans. those are the facts. i think....

you sure they like guns...

ok, the probes are not food! if he is eating the probes, that is a sign of MBD! or RI....i think....

thats cool that you wash your hat out every day, but i wouldnt let it "hang dry". hanging on the antlers will only cause your dragon to puff up and gape at you. and in turn he will eat the antlers! no, definitely throw it in the dryer! now that will keep you dragon entertained!!!

just so you know...Komodo Dragons DONT tend school in Ohio. no, thats bad info! they like the deserts of California. i think......

singing dragons dont like guns!

never, ever, ever use a water dish for a KD. always use the local pool!!

did you say that they like guns?

always take a fecal...a dragon’s fecal, that is....to the vet. never take it in a monkey suit. they wont take you seriously!


i think....... i hope this info helped. keep us posted!

no no no you got it all wrong too.they HATE small cricket players. they like kind of tinishly medium sized small players.and yes there is a difference by 2 inches.very picky dragons...

also the uniform doesn’t cause impaction. the intestines tell him to impact himself when he feels like it. i heard that that calcisand is a really good substrate too...

to dust, i first hire a body builder to throw the prey into water and then dump it into this really cool purple sand stuff that my komodo dragon coughs up alot after eating. oh i also bought it at the homeless shelter.i think.or was that the gay shelter?

gosh you retard this is how you spell eh-xx-owe-scel-itine.

okay how do you not know your 58,672.83 komodo dragon facts! they are democrackic and always seem to be importing guns............and mexicans. for the black market as pets.do i have to review them all?

no eating probing machines is a sign of heart failure. i think.

no no no they go to the pre-not-cool-school in ohio and then they are shipped to af-agama-stan with their guns and shoot down large agamas for lunch.oh did i say they eat agamas for lunch somewhere in here?

wow you are not right for 5 times that singing dragons don’t not like guns.that makes total sense but i heard hippie dragons love them.

no i use the spa not the pool for mine.he eats the chlorine too much.

i just use a week’s worth of my fecials and say it’s my komodos.it always turns out they are full of parasites! they always take monkey suits seriously at the clinic. don’t you know?

you people are so unsmart...

whatsacrackalackinnucka...

OH OK....so im a retard? i did not know that! thank you for pointing that out! now, i can go find that little yellow bus!

ok i dont think he can actually do it on his own. i think he needs the player’s sphinkter to procede. ill have to look that up in my dragon manual. i got it at the crciket game. it includes the info on KDs as well as the size players they need.

i have disagree about the muscleman theory. most people agree that musclemen are a great gutload for the players! and NOT a prey thrower! in fact, its been studies that you can put a muscleman in a small shoebox and it will pupate. much healthier for the dragon imo...

theres a gay shelter?

again, i have to disagree...yes, the democracks use and import the guns, but republicants eat the guns, therefore KDs make better republicants! the Mexicans are just a "front" and dont fit into the equasion at all. its a secret the KDs have been hiding from us for years!!!

what!! where did you go to school? KDs dont have hearts and everybody knows it! get the facts...

there shouldnt be gay shelters!

Cannibals!!!

... and why would they have a gay shelter?

af-agama-stan is in seattle...

hippies are not dragons!! dragons are hippies!!

i use chlorine to help with shed!

lol your disgusting...

and to let you know, clinicians wear monkey suits while testing for parasites! just so you know...

this has been a great thread! i think we got a lot done...

I KNOW IT’S A GREAT THREAD WITH TONS OF NEWBIE FACTS.

yes,fortunatly when they took that one drug test 5 weeks ago when you were hiding illegal mexican immigrants in your truck, they found out you are retarded.no no no it’s a big purple bus you go on.

what the heck is a KD?

for the last time musclemen do not pupate! you put them in a purple greenhouse and they molt! if you do gutload them, cheeseburgers are the way to go. very healthy...so are BISCUITS AND GRAVY. idk that was random.
are you crazy about the shoebox thing?! thats way too small! you put them in a tupperware container with purple calcisand to molt!every dragon owner knows that...

yes, thankfully there is a gay shelter.it was made especially for you. wait did i see you there when i bought that cool purple sand stuff?

i went to school in i-ran. it was a tough year there, always running a few miles every hour.i think i will deploy my komodo there eventually. he needs exercise. i think he gained a couple pounds in the last minute. o_0

what the heck is a KD?

yes you finally got it right!!!! af-agama-stan is in Siberia.

i dont use cholrine with shed. i drink it occasionally(10 times per day)so my komodo won’t waste it.

no, monkey suits are worn in asia when they treat bamboo for fungus.

and last and least, never ever ever ever ever ever ever...(yeah you get the point) leave a gun with the cricket players! they will hide in your komodos substrate and get up real close...then when your komodo spots it, the cricket player will shoot itself! :0. but democrackic komodos have to persist in shooting musclemen when they pupate or they will grow too big for your komodo to eat.
i read on the news that hilary clinton was attacked by a komodo without the rabbies vaccine!she has 1 arm and only 5 legs now. what a sad fact. i think komodos are switching to republicans now.:0)))
but they still like guns.

first..a KD is a spy for Komodo Dragons.

2nd..newbie facts is a scandel the KD Democracks drummed up to get votes!

HA! the jokes on you! those werent illegal Mexican immigrants in the back of my truck! do you take me for a Coyote!! no! its a diguise! THERE ARE NO MEXICANS! everyone knows Mexico sunk 500 years ago! this is just to trick them into keeping the border closed! why do you think gas prices have skyrocketed!!

and im not retarded! ive been faking it all along!

i told you KDs are spies!

yeah true, but if you molt your muscleman, he wont get a job! and hell lay on your couch for 10 years. all this your talking about is old info that is a myth! new studies have proven that musclemen that pupate into pink zebras can get a job as walmart greeters!

that terrorist trade center you call a gay shelter is going down next tuesday. it didnt belong there in the first place. that wasnt me!

Siberia is in Seattle!

this thread has turned into political war against pupating musclemen! i doubt it will last!

JackAsp...you still with us? or did they turn you into a KD also....

OH NOW I GET IT! THE KD KOMODO DEMOCRATS! OHHHHH.is that why they like guns?
the komodo KD spies.that’s what its called. the secret organization of komodo democrats to slowly and literally eat our nation :o

your an idiot then because everyone knows illegal mexicans died out 500.61.45 years ago!not 500 years ago!omg i’m going to have a seizure you’re so stupid.

gas prices have downblasted because of our komodo KD spies’ threats that they will kill hilary clinton if the government doesn’t lower the price. i think they highered the price though :D
i hope you know why all the other canidates somewhat disappeared in the last month :s
{the komodo KD spies}

musclemen pupate into purple zebras not pink ones! stop giving out harmful newbie info!and they sell purple calcisand stuff at gay shelters!THEY DO NOT GREET WALMART PEOPLE.I WAS THERE 12 YEARS AGO. I THINK I WOULD KNOW ABOUT WHAT IS IN WALMART TODAY.
because the komodo KD spies tell me :s

no siberia is in washington!

jackasp we’ve knew you so long. now you’ve turned against us! you’re a komodo KD spie :o :o
or are you a KL? {komodo libeterian}



oh yeah about the first question, 10 GALLONS ARE WAY TOO BIG FOR KOMODOS.

Komodo Dragons are not Democrats. Democrats want to tax the rich. Komodo Dragons want the rich to keep getting fatter and fatter, and then eat them. Democrats want universal health care. Komodo Dragons want more untreated injuries, resulting in easier-to-catch prey.

Speaking of musclemen, Arnold Schwarzenegger is actually a Komodo Dragon in disguise. Kind of like in that miniseries "V." His problem with gay marriage was that he was afraid it would decrease the human birth rate, causing him to run low on food.

Barak Obama is actually a skink of some kind in disguise.

John McCain is a Uromastyx. (He doesn’t have a disguise.)

im no idiot! that went out with Angelflights and disco! im telling you....they sunk 500 years ago!! i was there!!! and again..they sunk! get the facts!

there not eating our nation...our nation is eating them...for lunch!

ok.. the reason they need the border closed is to keep Hilary from finding the truth. they needed a good excuse to keep it closed, so they came up with this idiocracy that Mexicans exist and are trying to break through. all this comes from a very reliable source. the KDs have a mole!

those candidates that disappeared have been brainwashed and are now part of the KD movement...just like Jackasp mentioned..."V"!! you think it was just a movie??? now whose the idiot??

can we get back to pupating musclemen?

DuH!! Seattle Washington.....

speaking of moles i saw a mole mouse and i’m going to feed it to my komodo dragon.

i think they are better parasitewise than pupating musclemen.and thats a good thing!too bad the mole mouse wasn’t purple. i think i still have 1 can left from spraypainting my house purple yesterday. i will use it on the mole mouse.and then feed it to my komodo. no cricket players this feeding time. i ran out.and the sports store ran out of them too. now i have no other reliable source!

he said komodo dragon-aka-KD,not "kid" daddy43!although kids with a layer of purple calcisand are delicious....

speaking of books by nurse suie,i like the kool thing about yellow eggs and pork better than the kitty in the sombrero.or whatever the heck they are called, give me a break i went to jackasp’s school!
