This is Rainier, but I call him MLM or Mista Lizad Man (the only time Icall him Rainier is when I make an appt. at the vets for him :P)
He is ~8/9 yrs old. I got him from my friend who got him from her college's bio dept. Apparently he had a few homes prior to when she got him and he lost his tail as a youngster when he lived with another male beardie AND a female beardie in the same tank. He also supposedly bit someone so hard they went to the hospital, and so my friend said his name was Stitch cus of his "multiple personalities"
How I got him was my friend's college didn't allow reptiles in the dorms anymore so I was watching him for her. She gave me his 20g LONG tank with the sand in it. Yes, He lived in a 20g long as an adult for a while...
After a couple months, she called me and told me that she couldn't afford to keep him anymore and was going to list him for sale on CL but decided to call me 1st and see if I wanted him. I told her no way was she going to give him away he was mine from now on and I'd NEVER send him another home again, he had his forever home.
I moved him into a 120g tank (but later moved him into a 40g breeder) and got him off the sand, the crappy petsmart crickets he was eating created such a huge parasite load that I spent quite a lot of money ridding him of them and even syringe fed him for weeks with critical care and meds. Now, because of all that his digestive system is messed up now. He seems to do well with life though.
He has NEVER bitten me once in the few years I have had him and loves to sleep and snuggle with me. He acts like a big tough old man, but underneath is a teddy bear :)
I wanted to post the pic of him eating a piece of mango, but I couldn't find it.
