Taking Baby Beardie Outside?

Postby MaddySays » Fri Jul 20, 2018 5:26 am

Hi!
I’ve had my baby beardie for almost two weeks now and I am curious about taking her outside. I don’t want to stress her out but I wanted to bring her out in the nice weather!

IMO It would be too stressful for a baby because they'll have to watch out for predators, cars, and birds and other dangers, plus the beardie might dart at any moment if it's a baby (and trust me, they're super fast). IMO I would just wait until it's a bit older and more settled in.

You could let them sit in the window sill. If you have a screen it could also let them get some uv. They love looking outside.

My babies went outside from within a week or two of when they hatched. As long as you keep an eye on them it's fine and they get used to the outdoors pretty quickly. Little guys do well in a child's pool but you have to be sure it's not too hot out and that you provide artificial shade. Here's a picture of a group of babies. Larger dragons need a screened cage , they are able to easily jump out of the plastic pool.

Hawks in the area seem to have no interest in the little buggers.
