    Do you include your herps in your winter holiday celibrations? If so how?

    Today while I was at the salon my stylist inquired about Godiva's (my female BP) health as usual and then asked what she was getting for the holidays and I wasn't really sure how to answer. I remembered somebody had decorated all thier cages so I thought I'd come in here and pose the question again to you guys :)

    Gift wise, yes. I get all my critters presents (which gets a bit expensive). Other than that though, I don't do much with them for the holidays. No decorating or nothin.

    This is the first Xmas with my two snakes...they already have more presents under the tree than we do!! Just little stuff... the back-up replacement heat lamp and other stuff I can't divulge here because my husband is going to open their presents for them!
    It's fun... and they're A LOT easier to buy for than family members!!!

    The lizards get waxworms and the snakes get mice.

    We'll probably get Spectre a couple of pinkie treats because he still adores them even though he's really "too big" for them and eats small adult mice now. One time we only had a large fuzzy to give him, and it was a bit too small, so we supplemented it with a pinkie. He ate that as fast as lightning, and ignored the fuzzy for the longest time looking for more pinkies. Now he always ignores the adult mouse we give him to spend some time checking to see if a pinkie might be around. He has to make sure that the adult mouse is all he's going to get before he gives in and eats it. So I think a Christmas pinkie or two would make his day! :D Of course, we might regret it the next time we offer adult mouse and he spends an hour looking for pinkies instead! :eek:

    We'll probably give the other snakes some cage furniture because their tanks aren't as decorated as Spectre's is. :)

    The lizards are on our Christmas cards that I send out every year :)

    2004 - Beach themed;
    2003 - Sleeping lizards; not sure where I have a file of that uploaded.
    2002 - Christmas near dusk :)

    Now, I'm not sure how to juggle 2 iguanas and 2 bearded dragons. Last year, it was amusing for the beach-goers. I had a tripod set up and straddling a big iguana, one dragon held down with one hand, and the other dragon with the other. When 3 minds all decide at once to not cooperate, it makes for a lifeguard laughing his brains out.

    Our herps always get for the holidays. new items for their enclosures and always special food. (whatever is their favorite meals) The beardies and iggys always make out best. Being here in Florida there are always exotic fruits and veggies in all the supermarkets.;)

    Have you tried Canberries with your Iggys. I was thinking that would be a great treat.

    My babies will sooooo be included in our Christmas celebrations this year. I just got them 200 silk worms so they will all get a pre Christmas treat!!

    I might decorate the cages but I'm not too sure on what is safe for the interior (if anything) and may put some lights around the outside.

    Presents for the lizards here are a regular thing - I am always buying them stuff but they may get an extra special something ;)

    This is Shadwell's first Christmas...of course he'll be part of the celebration! He's about 11 months old now. We have ornaments on our tree that say "Baby's First Christmas" - my father bought them for each of my 3 children - do you think somewhere there is a "Lizard's First Christmas" ornament??!! Planning to get Shadwell a new and bigger foodbowl, and some mealworms - I have only gotten him crickets before as I can't stand the sight of the mealworms, so it will be a real sacrifice for me and a real treat for him!!

    This is Odins first xmas and as he's only 5-6 months old it'll be like a babys first xmas. He's already got a heat mat, repti grass, some new calcium supplement seeing he has decided he doesn't like nutrobal. And when i go food shopping i'm sure he'll get something really nice for xmas dinner.

    I voted maybe only because this is our first year having any- lol. We include the cat, so why not everyone else too?!

    They each get there own stocking, all my pets do, it was a tradition that started when I was a baby, I used to complain because our dog never got any presents, so my mom started giving our animals stockings, since then I have still done it. They are parts of the family too, and I have no children yet, so they get all the spoiling.
