Old Beardie Owner Looking To Get Back In

Postby JohnLillywhite » Fri Mar 08, 2019 9:00 pm

Hey, guys.

A few years back, I had a beardie. Unfortunately, I had to give him to a family friend because I was leaving for USMC boot camp. During training, I tore my rotator cuff, and was medically discharged.

So, I am now looking to get back into the beardie world. I'm going to get a baby from a reputable breeder. How long will a 20gl enclosure last for a beardie? Or should I just full send a 40gl breeder?

I put my baby beardie in a 40 gal breeder from the start and he did just fine. I put in plenty of places for him to hide and climb. And I've heard of people putting in a cardboard divider if the little one does seem too intimidated by it's surroundings.
There are articles on the right side of the page under care and husbandry that are a good refresher to read through. I haven't had reptiles since high school so getting caught up here was nice! Lots of information and nice dragon-loving people!

Good luck! And welcome back to dragons!

Welcome!

I would definitely just go with the 40g Breeder.

What kind of beardie are you looking for? :mrgreen:

Anything really. I want a 100% Wit, but my wallet doesn't like that idea. Probably a normal citrus, or leatherback.

Here are some breeder links but I haven't ever bought from them so I don't know their reputation first hand. I have been looking over their beardies though! My big guy was adopted from a friend of a friend and my little guy was a Petsmart baby that "Needed" to come home with me.

You can always look into adopting too! :wink:

Thank you for all that information!! Your beardies are beautiful. I'm thinking to purchase from Carolina Classic Dragons. Any info on them?

Carolina C.D. has a very good reputation as far as I know and has beautiful dragons. They are expensive though.

I agree on the price, but I hear their dragons are worth it. Cared for extremely well, amazing colors, etc. Better than a petsmart dragon
