Thanks! i got the pictures now!!
here they are of the tank then of him!

Tank: 20 gallon long. i will upgrade as he gets bigger. I’m saving up money for things for him!



Pond. its over a heat pad so the water is warm



This is his fogger: it is in a large plastic container with water in it: the fogger splashes water so its in a tall container that Lil’Bit cant get into: it have slits in the side above water level so the fog can come out





This is the tank once the fogger has been turned on!



And Lil’Bit himself!!
he is hanging out soaking up some heat in his nice plant!!



You cant see me if i cant see you!!



What are YOU looking at!?



Thanks for looking!!

Love

Megan & Lil’Bit

yes! he is amazing! i love him! i went to Petsmart to get him/her, and there where 3. the guy who was getting them out for me asked which one as he stuck his hand in. the other 2 ran away but Lil’Bit stayed and hissed at him. i said I want that one!!

but Lil’Bit loves me very much x3 probably because i gave him a nice humid, large tank and food! haha. i can hold him/her for a while, i want Lil’Bit to settle down more before i start holding him more often! i also wanted to know, how can you tell if its a boy or a girl? i know about the vent area, but is Lil’Bit big enough to tell yet?

I named it Lil’Bit because hes tiny and its a boy/girl name lol!!

im happy i convinced my parents to let me get him! i had a leo die and a Alli die resently *also my bunny* horrible year 2011 has been for me. so Lil’Bit has been the sunshine to this year!!

what a sweet little baby. he looks a bit dehydrated and thin. make sure he gets in his pool a lot and he eats good. he can’t get to that heat source under your fogger water, right?

Lit’Bit is adorable!!! I know what you mean about how they bring sunshine into our lives.... If I had knows how wonderful a CWD was I would have adopted a house full by now!! I just live mine and look forward to every morning He/She wakes up. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures.

PS what brand of fogger unit did you get??

haha thank you everyone! Lil’bit is eating well and was just playing in his pool and lapping up dew drops on the leaves and rocks! i have fed him 2 large crickets and a few mealies today, and he was very happy. both the crickets and mealworms were dusted with a calcium powder and a vitamins powder. he had a few crickets when i got him home as well. he went poop today & yesterday. the one yesterday was runny. but today it was firm, so he must be feeling better than when he was in the pet store! haha!

As for UVB i dont have one yet :/ but i will soon. im also building an outdoor enclosure that is about 68-70 gallons, so he can also soak up nautrual light as well.

And the Fogger unit is an Exo Terra, Ultrasonic Fog Generator. you place it underwater and it will create fog. here is a link to a pic of one
Link
the black "handle" looking thing, must be underwater for it to work.
but yeah. the Fogger works great!! i leave it off at night, then turn it on in the morning, i also spray the tank in the morning. the fogger runs through all the water i have by the time i get out of school, and as the water level goes down, the amount of fog does too.
and his tank gets sprayed 2 times a day to make sure he gets enough water.
i feed him when the fogger is off, haha he figured out the pattern really fast!! as soon as the fog turned off this after noon he went to the side of the tank and stared at the cricket container!!

He is a lot of fun! im really happy i got him!

I hope you’re also supplying some heat at night as CWD’s are not cold tolerant
temps below 75* degrees at night for
a young dragon and your asking for health issues

no lower than 70* degrees at night for a established dragon(over 20"’s Total Length)

UVB ASAP!!!!

My room is very warm at night and day. becasue i have 3 reptiles. they all have heating asortments. it keeps my room pretty warm, but i also have a Night bulb for the snake in my bro’s room, we dont use it at night, so i will take that at night and switch bulbs! thanks for letting me know!
i use to not have to worry about that, because of the UTH. but that is completely under the pond. he can go to the pond and sit in the warm water. but i will use the Night Bulb.

the Night bulb is NOT infa red. it is strictly for night time animals. not for alowing us to veiw them. It has a blue light to it. it does provide heat, i will read the box it came in to see if it says the temps.

and i WILL get the UVB lighting soon!! dont worry!!

you do realize that by not having a UVB light source a CWD/lizard
WILL have a compromised immune system and be MUCH more vulnerable
to health issues and parasitic infestation which WILL eventually
lead to their death and/or expensive$$$$ vet bills

He’s beautiful!! Such a sweet baby.
Babies are so fragile. If that little guy doesn’t get a decent amount of UV soon he wont be able to digest his food

Hey! Maybe someone loan you the money? Please try x
