Hi everyone! My family recently received a new family member, who my son promptly named Thorny. We were told he was about 6 months old. This is our first reptile so we are all very new to this. I have soooooo many questions, like what is a good daily/weekly diet for his age, best substairght to use? How can you tell if he is getting enough water? All those kinds of things, so I am glad join a beardie community so I can make sure we can give him the best care for a long healthy and happy life.

Set up looks very good and so does Thorny. :) One thing to be aware about is that dragons often try to eat fake plants, so as nice as they look they can be a hazard.


I don't see a uvb light. They need a long tube , a brand like Reptisun 10.0 t5 or Arcadia D3 12 -14 % . These are long, slim bulbs, anywhere from 18 " to 36 " to go over the top of the tank.

Good to know. We do have a coil uvb bulb, a baksing bulb and night time heat bulb. The two heat bulbs are down my hammock.😀
