    Dozier the super reduced pattern reticulated Gila progress thread

    So figure I'll start a new thread since I finally came up with a name. Based on him always digging tunnels, I named him Dozer. He's had 2 meals and we started working together. The little guy is not shy and loves to explore. I put a glove on that I scented with myself and pet his head. He initiated first contact and climbed onto the glove and sat on me. We messed around for about 20 mins and the whole time I would let him climb on the glove, then lift him and put him on his half log. He would then climb down and come back over to the open door to rinse and repeat lol. Now I closed the door and he is all over it wanting out again haha. And I will leave you with a close up of a foot as he moved as I was trying photo him. Hard to photo with a note 9 in one hand and making sure the baby didn't fall with a gloved opposite hand.

    Great photos and impressive claws on that foot! In regards to the claws, are they continuously growing that they would need to be filed or clipped?

    I sure hope he doesn't need pedicures? Seems really personable too...you should be ashamed of yourself, Sauzo! Making us all want one!

    If you get smoked, make sure you record the reaction lol. I'm not buying the Coyote Peterson Gila monster bite video, dude has like five cameras on him and all of them "conveniently" missed the actual bite and then the guy is talking pretty casually throughout the whole ordeal....fake as a $3 bill. But, my rant is done haha.

    People provide them some kind of gravel to assist in wearing down claws correct?

    Not sure about the gravel. I had pieces of slate for my beardie to keep her toe nails down. I'll eventually add a rock or two for him to climb on as it seems he LOVES to climb up stuff. His 3 passions are digging tunnels in the aspen and popping his head up in random places, climbing his half log or giant driftwood, and windshield washing the doors or wedging himself between the door and litter dam sides and inchworm his way up to the top of the cage lol. He definitely has a lot of personality. It's really funny when you walk by and startle him when hes got his head buried in the aspen and digging. He pops out, huffs up and stares at me. Then he must realize its me or something as he calms down and goes back to digging.

    I used to clip my beardies toe nail ends just to remove the sharp end but I'm not doing that with Dozer, no matter how calm he is lol. Worst case, my vet says she will see my gila and beaded when i get him so I'll have her clip the nails if needed but I'm going to just try with a few rocks so he can climb on them.

    Lol, i wish i would have pulled the trigger sooner. Little guy is awesome and even though babies are notorious for being bitey and pissy, he is really laid back....but I'm still going to use a glove on the hand closest to the bitey end until he gets bigger so the distance between the bitey end and the spot i hold him is further apart lol.

    I'm just saying, if that guy got bit by a Gila then I've survived a Grizzly and Orca attack as well.....come on man, watch that video and tell me it's real lol.
