Hello everyone, from Knoxville, TN. I am very excited to find this group online...Very informative & I can use all the advice I can get. This is the first beardie I habe owned, actually first reptile I have owned. This is all new to me and I will apologize in advance if it seems I don't know much, but the truth is...I really don't know much. But I am learning so much just being on this website. I will be grateful for any advice at all.
Thanks,
Stephanie H.

S/he is so cute! I just got a baby too. (Technically for my son but may as well be mine since I'll be the one actually taking care of it lol). I've had adults in the past, but this is my first baby.

Welcome to the forum----- please tell us what your using for your set up UVB brand and bulb -- the baby looks so cute looking out his glass -- and if your just using the stick ons to get temp please invest in some digital probes - the stick ons are not accurate for basking temps - you also might want to invest in a infrared heat gun - the probes can be bought at petco or petsmart for $5 and the gun from your local home improvement store -- - your baby will go thru relocation stress so hes eating will slow down but he should not quit eating all together -- here is a website for nutrition
http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html your baby should be eating salads every morning - his diet should consist mainly of insects dusted w/ calcium D3 5 x per week and vitamins 2 x per week - you can get some BSFL from here https://symtonbsf.com/ to entice him to the glass bowl that insects / worms cant get out of - they are a great staple feeder and they do not need to be dusted - you can also use some small super worms 1-3 to lure him to the bowl as well - you can get them from here https://reptilesupply.com/collections/s ... s-for-sale -- butter worms can also be used as well - feed salad w/ your enticers first thing in the morning and make sure you let him see you put them in the bowl it will get his attention to the bowl and then add your staple feeder like dubia roaches or crickets like an hour or so later just so he has time to eat some of his veggies - crickets are harder to use as they jump so you might have to disable them by pulling a leg off - the dubias are easier to use and better nutrition wise anyway - the dubias are easier to keep - you can use a 10 gallon aquarium or tote and feed them carrots for hydration and dubia food / or things your dragon eats - they like squash sweet potato -- if you have any more questions please ask
