Greeting!

If you just got a new beardie, introduce your beardie to the community! If you're a newcomer, say hello and introduce yourself.

Greeting!

We are new to owning a beardie. We bought our Eliot from a lady who said he was left in an apartment where the tenants had just moved out. Poor guy has part of his tail missing, he was sooo skinny. He is finally gaining weight. Can anyone tell me what kind of dragon he is? Also, any ideas on how to get him to eat his greens better? Thank you!

Thank you for the responses! He is in a 40 gallon. We had 2 separate lights but switched over to a 2 in 1 bulb. He seems to like basking under it. He gapes as well too. We feed him collard, dandelion & mustard greens. Some kale. He will only eat greens if we put super worms in it like salad. He will also eat crickets. Not much but some carrot, sweet potato and blueberries. When we got him he had horrible shed stuck to him. He just released it this past weekend. He gets about 3 baths a week. We were using paper towels on the bottom for awhile. I just made him this bottom. It is a light weight fabric and I covered it with contact paper, front and back. Please let me know if we need to adjust anything!! He is such a sweet boy I want the best for him. [Click image to enlarge]

I am just gonna mention it since I see them in your pics, but make sure you are using a digital with probe end or a temp gun to measure temps. The dial stick on thermometers are wildly inaccurate. Besides that everything else seems fine :)
