Hi all. I have taken over the care of my son's Bearded Dragon. Adult son, its just that his job keeps him away from his home 4 out of 6 weeks. The Beardie's former care giver has become unable to do what is needed to keep him healthy, so I am now caring for a Grand-Pet. The little guy is called Beast and he has fit right in to our odd household. He is four years old. I have never cared for a reptile before but my son is just a text away for questions and I am well read. My main hobby is tropical aquatic animals with a really heavy emphasis on ornamental freshwater shrimp and somewhat on aquatic plants. I have a few fish as well. Anyhow, I am sure that I will have lots of questions going forward. I have had Beast for about a month now and we seem to get along great. I am gonna need some help though, so that I can make sure he is as well taken care of as possible. Anyway, thanks to anyone and everyone in advance, and remember that i have a pretty good bank of knowledge regarding freshwater shrimp if anyone is interested. Cheers-Casey

Welcome to the forum! People here do tend to have other niche specialities which is cool to here about.

Second the yes to pictures. It's nice to get ideas and inspiration from what other people are doing. Giving a dragon a beautiful healthy spoiled life is a satisfying hobby

Welcome to Beast!
My adult son gave me my Dragon for Thanksgiving, they just didn't have the time to properly care for him, too much going on in their lives. But I offered, cause I just adored Petey anyway.🤗
There are very helpful people here, always willing to lend a hand.

Does my beardie look healthy?
