Just make sure you have or get a piece of decor that that can sit directly under it- if you can move the basking bulb and UVB side by side- you can always put the UVB width wise-- as well it does not haft to be length wise-- what ever works for you

Hi Karrie,
Our bearded dragon is doing a lot better. His appetite is definitely back but not for his veggies. Any suggestions on how to get him to eat them?

Use your worms to lure him to the salad bowl - add those worms to his salad -- see if you can entice him to eat some even if hes only eating a little bit your getting him to eat some -- make sure you rinse the greens before serving so if he eats it he will get hydration too -- use those phoenix worms they are small -- make sure you use a glass or ceramic bowl so the worms cant get out and try putting the roaches in their too they may not stay but you can use those phoenix worms-- try some super worms too like 1-3 make sure he sees you adding them to the bowl do it catches his attention and do it first thing in the morning or at first feeding

Hi Karrie,

Basil has been doing better. Noticed today that he started what it looks like a sneeze..do bearded dragons do that..should we be concerned?

When he sneezed did have any mucous or water type stuff coming out of his nose or mouth? Is he breathing hard or wheezing? Is he opening his mouth for breathing - not the normal gaping

No nothing like that...it was just a simple sneeze I guess..but he did it a number of times..right now the sneezing has stopped for the last 15 minutes and is lying down in his terrarium. He seems ok..Will be giving him dinner soon..we'll see how he is..are those the signs to look out for if something respiratory is going on?
