Okay, I had no idea what section to put this in, but since we have reptile people on this board.......Im gonna go ahead and put it here.
Rommel is in love. Unfortunately, he has fallen for a dragon named Elvis. It is the funniest thing, he could CARE LESS about the yellow dragon, but the orange one, he LOVES.
I take them out in the evening and give them a bath, and when the yellow one comes out......no big deal. I always wrap them in a paper towel or washcloth and sit down and let them sit on my chest and dry before they go back in there cage.
Rommel KNOWS when the orange one (Elvis) comes out. He wants to be RIGHT THERE. He watches him take a bath....when I wrap him up its all Rommel can do to stay on 4 feet, because he wants to SEE the dragon.
When Elvis is crawling around on me, Rommel will try to rest his head right next to Elvis. Now, this is ALL of course under very careful supervision...but tonight Rommel actually LICKED the dragon. Not like a I want to eat you lick....but a very gentle lovey kind of lick. He did it more than once. When I went to put Elvis back in the cage, I said "Rommel give him a kiss goodnight" AND HE DID! It is the strangest thing........you can just tell......Rommel LOVES this dragon. And Elvis doesnt mind Rommel at all, In fact he will crawl toward him and they will touch noses. He will hang out near the cage and push his nose against the glass where Elvis is. But it is ONLY with Elvis. Not with Sully at all. ONLY ELVIS.
This is NOT normal Rommel behavior......I'm telling you, I would not have expected this from Rommel is a MILLION years......but he LOVES this dragon!
I wonder if its an orange thing,my dogs used to take no notice of my grasssnake (mainly black) but were always all over me when i had the corn snake out(which are mainly an orange colour of sorts)but they tell us dogs don't see colour, right?
I think that is cool. I think a lot of it is how they are introduced to the animal..... its like introducing a cat... with no hair.... kind of scaly.... with no litter box manners... lol
Gunny is great around our reptiles, Maggie ignores them, Tess.... well she still wants to know what everything tastes like.
How sweet. I have yet to introduce Jordan to the scaly siblings. Unfortunately they have been a little neglected when it comes to special time since he came along. I did have an interesting time when I took out my youngest snake and Jordan was just too interested that I had the hardest time putting her in the feeding tote. Hungry snake, curious dobe. Not a good mix.
Can you at least post pictures of the dragon? My daughter has an orange one.
