Proud new owner of a bearded dragon named pepper

Hello I am from Calgary Alberta Canada. I just purchased a bearded dragon for a birthday present to myself. But this is my first beardie. I have owned a leopard gecko which recently passed away due to my ex wife killing it.

thank you. my beardie and i have been together for about 4 days and every time i come home she (i think its female im going with it until i know for certain) starts looking around as soon as i say something to her and she already lets me hold her i have to change her substrate tonight as she is on sand that her terrarium kit came with. but i was informed this is not a good substrate for her. even though i like the color its really cool. i just dont want her to get impacted from ingesting the sand. shes about 2 months old. super alert and all over the place much like myself.

Yah, sand is no good, definitely an impaction risk. What UV light do you have?

You can get a mat that looks like sand but isn't loose, that's what we did. Be sure to rinse the mat thoroughly and let it dry completely before installing.
