Keeping new Dragon happy

Postby Laylac123 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 10:05 am

Greetings my daughter and I just received our new bearded dragon he’s five months old his name is Lorenzo I will try to post a picture of him and his tank we got him from Carolina custom dragons walking by his tank on and off yesterday and today I know he’s about to shed because I can see that his entire back is gray he has only been here for three days but it just kind a looks depressing what are they supposed to do all day I’m getting a leash for him as soon as possible so we can take him outside and let him out and about more trying to not feel with him that much since he is so new can’t help but feeling like he’s just stuck in that tank ,...[Click image to enlarge]

He will be fine -- just be careful when taking him out side make sure that leash he cant get out of because if he sees a bird fly over it may freak him out and he will be running for cover to hide since birds are a natural prey and instinct will take over --- I had Hiccup out the other day my LR curtain was only partially opened and he saw something out the window i am assuming bird flew by and he was off me off the recliner onto the floor running for a place to hide in a flat instant- so just to be warned -- they are quick and I dont want you to loose him outside-- what kind of UVB do you have set up in your tank --- it looks really nice

Yes please lock your cat up if hes stalking ---- I have 4 cats but are pretty good --- they are used to him (Hiccup) but I still never leave him unattended w/ them
