Cuddly lizard?

Postby blueygirl83 » Wed Aug 15, 2007 7:42 pm

Is anyone else's bluey particularly affectionate? Mine loves to snuggle in blankets with me, nuzzles under my chin, sits in my lap, on my shoulder...she's very cuddly and tolerant and just seems to love affection. I can rub under her chin, gently scratch on either side of her head or by her ears and she tilts her head... I can make her "dance" (hold the little arms up like a cat or dog, haha) and pretty much just torture her and she just doesn't seem to care! Is that just the way they are? It's too cute. She's wrapped up in a towel with her eyes closed on my lap as I write. Never thought I'd see a reptile act quite this way! :love:

And it cracks me up because if I don't hold her consistently sometimes she gets cranky when I take her out...puffs up and sometimes even opens her mouth, acts all big and bad but the moment I get her to calm down, she melts like butta... I'm thinking of getting her one of those little skink blanket/sock warmer/sleeping bag things.

Everyone that I have seen with them say that the skinks love them. They have so much personality.

Quigly can be quite cuddly also, maybe it's because they know they can trust you. I can imagine seeing as you're the one who took care of Quigs till I could bring him to his real home.

( Quigs says thanks foster mom) :wink:

What ???? sit down and cuddle when there's so much exploring to do !!! you gotta be joking, it's much more fun trying to see if he can squeeze himself between me and the cushions :lol:

I don't call him Tom the " tank " for nothing :roll: nose down and push lol

I have dogs and they would tear him up, so I can't let him explore. There are also so many places I could lose him

Haha, she likes to do her fair share of exploring, too, especially outside in the grass. She likes to get into cushions too, or inbetween the bed and the wall and then 'plop!' on the ground under the bed...she looked stunned then with a 'i'm never doing that again' traumatized look on her little lizard face.
Quigs was always a such a sweet little lizard! I took him out every day I worked...he was my little project, the highlight of my day! :blush:

Sammy likes to cuddle under anything! I put her in my lap and place anything over her (blanket, pillow, papertowel) and she stays there keeping warm and happy. :cloud9:

She'll crawl up on my chest under my chin and if I put my hand over her she'll stay because of the warmth, I imagine. Otherwise, she's climbing all over my shoulders and back being a Curious George.

I ordered her the Bluey Set with the blanket, sock and sleeping bag made of fleece. I can't wait to get it in the mail! 8) She will love it! :yes!:
