LOST BABY BEARDED DRAGON!

Postby MokrechMaya » Fri Oct 25, 2019 7:45 am

Hi everyone!
My baby beardie has been staying at my boyfriends. My boyfriend came to pick me up yesterday. We were out for only maybe an hour and a half and in that time my beardie just disappeared!!
We looked in him entire room! He’s small enough to go under the door so we looked in the hallway and everywhere we could think of. I don’t know what to do. I set out his basking lamp in the hallway and a critter container with crickets.
This little guy is so small!! Does anyone have any ideas or tips??

First of all how did he get out did you just let him roam around the room that's not good is your cage secure if you do have one?

You need check under dressers beds bookshelves toy boxes closets places dark where he can get under to sleep- the basking lamp and food thing is a good idea ---

We didn’t leave him out. I think he just managed to jump out. He’s been very active these past days.

Do you have him in a 20 gallon tank ? Others on here have lost their dragons and manage to find them --- the room he was in does it have a door and was the door open? Do you have other animals in the house cat? dog? If so lock them up or out the cat will find him and kill him --- same w/ the dog ----

Yes I just got him a 20 gal tank. The door was closed but theres a decent size crack at the bottom.
We’ve been keeping the dog locked up in the meantime. I think he’s just sleeping but ive just got to find him.
Thank you for your advice!

So things like this if you find him you want to get a lid for the top of the cage or lower things down so he cant jump out leaving the heat lamp and food out is good do you have any animals like a cat?

Hello,

Poor thing! Does your boyfriend have any other animals in the house that would be likely to
attack or kill him if they saw him? If not, then as long as he didn't get out of the door to outside,
he is in there somewhere.
Continue to put out the basking light, changing locations of it every couple of days in case he
is roaming around. As you are doing, leaving his favorite insects or food out for him, too might
help bring him out.
Carefully look under everything thoroughly. Let us know how that goes for you & if you find him.

Hi there,

Any update for us? I hope you've found your baby.

One place to look at (seems counter-intuitive) is cold dark places in the room (or house). Every time I've had a dragon get out that's where I find them. Somewhere cold and dark and them sleeping soundly.

Look behind furniture, under furniture, on the backside of your mattress if it's against the wall, in your clothes pile.

Good luck!

Thank you for the good ideas! I got a top for his so it wont happen again.
I did find him the day after! He had come out of hiding and was just hanging out in the corner of the room we had lost him in.
