Introducing Hendrix...

Soooooo I acquired a baby beardie through an unfortunate incident 2 days ago (I'll go into it further in a later post). He's maybe a month old? Anywho...he's in a pretty sweet set up now. I have the reptisun 10.0 t8 and its inside the take about 9 inches from his basking spot. His basking spot is 109.3 degrees (taking that with a probe and I also have a IR gun) and hes on linoleum. He's eating better than I expected under the circumstances and hes eating super small dubia and bsfl. He will eat about 11 dubia a day, I try and feed him 3 times a day but sometimes he wont eat. Of course he isn't eating his veggies (babies 🙄) but overall I think hes doing okay.[Click image to enlarge]

Welcome --- your set up sounds great---- get him started on his salads now tho ---
http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder
you can use small superworms 1-3 and your BSFL as salad toppers --- you can get the small super worms from here www.reptilesplus.com
Make sure you add those worms and BSFL in front of him to entice him to the bowl --- I would feed first thing in the morning --- then add your dubias to the salad bowl about an hr later -- and use a glass or ceramic bowl so they cant get out
