Do Bearded Dragons Stink?

Postby paulpjholcomb » Sat Mar 13, 2010 1:20 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I know this is a really dumb question, but do bearded dragons or their enclosures stink? I have done a lot of research on bearded dragons, but I can't find anything that says if they start to smell bad.

Thank you,
Paul

They don't usually stink. The animal itself shouldn't smell, but if you keep them on sand, they will smell. You aren't supposed to keep them on sand anyway. Also their tank might smell a little if they poop inside of it. For this reason, I bathe my beardie daily so he poops in his bath and his tank remains stink-free :)

I think their poop smells like monkey poop just a heads up. But they are great and I totally reccomend them.

Does that mean it smells really bad?

It smells like poop, but I guess it's bearable. If it smells awfully terrible and it makes you want to gag, there might be some internal problems. But poop doesn't smell like roses and daisies anyway :P

lol, I agree completely! Most of the time, it smells a lot better than a mouse or rat enclosure, just as a mammalian comparison.

the poop itself doesn't smell that offensive, but it is poop
your dragon won't smell unless he gets poop on himself (on the tail, vent, or feet)
then all you need to do is give him a bath
if you get poop out of the tank, it won't smell really, and if it start to, give it a clean

Thanks guys! I just went to my pet store and they didn't have any bearded dragons in stock because it isn't mating season. :( I also found out that a 40 gallon tank will cost $100! :banghead: I'll still get one when they have them in stock, though.

Mine don't stink but im sure you've gathered that much. I just wanted to let you know in my personal experiance it's better to buy one from a breeder rather than a store just because of the way they are cared for.

Well, I would much rather buy from a breeder, but I don't know where any are. :(

Oh and you should check your local Craigslist.com for used terrariums. There more like 40-50 bucks
