Papa Smurf was initially rescued by a reptile store in December 2011. I saw Smurf there on 12/28 in a tank with a black beard tripping over his deformed leg, caked in blue sand when I went to buy feeders. He had been surrendered and needed a home that would try to nurse him back to health, so I took him. He was 12-1/2" long with a large tail nip, and weighed 212 grams. I felt really bad for him, like he needed more than the store could give him, and he really needed a break. He was turned into the store by two young girls who knew he wasn't cared for properly. It was really nice of Pangaea Pets to try to save this dragon. He was stained blue for many months from the designer sand that he was kept on, and he was gray, so we called him Papa Smurf. He has a lot of personality and loves people, but hates other bearded dragons. He has some disabillity related to the metabolic bone disease with his left arm being curved and wrist not having much strength. This does impair him climbing which is a shame in such a spirited dragon! Smurf eats 3 - 4 days a week and gets liquid calcium 2 days a week. He gets Acidolphiliz mixed in once a week and B vitamins twice a month. Smurf is a drowning risk when he bathes and must be supported the entire time. He started chasing feeders on his own in August 2012 and has leveled off at 298 grams. Rocky's story started with Papa...he was the second dragon to come into the rescue.
