I know that beardie breeders use some color dot to tell which babies came from a clutch. I was wondering if anyone knew what it was and if it is safe for HLs too? We keep monthly (at least) weight and length (SVL on lizards, TL on snakes) on each of our animals. The two HLs we are getting look almost exactly the same, and it would be nice, until we difinitive things to tell them apart with, to be able to dot them.

It might be me being anal, but I do believe that weight and growth patterns can tell alot about care (and maybe this is due to teh fact that I also keep birds and they hide illness so weight is usually the first indicator).

Along those lines... Lester, do you have a compled average growth/weight for desert HLs over long term? I would like some kind of standard to compare ours with. I know I seem full of questions, but these are the ones I haven't seen answered yet.

BTW- we brought them home after we watched them pig out! They seem to love the enclosure, finding the basking spots and burrowing into the sand. One even did the display for me (push-ups!)
