How am I doing?

Postby beardiebaby19 » Mon Feb 17, 2020 7:58 pm

I adopted my first bearded dragon almost 5 months ago. It’s crazy how fast time has gone since then. He’s no longer a baby! Anyway, I just wanted to check and see how I’m doing. I sure fell in love with my little guy and I want to do everything I can for him!

Setup:
40 G long viv
Basking temp 102 F
Cool side 80 F
Hides and things to climb on around cage, also a hammock (which he loves!)
Lights on 7 off 7
T5 HO 10.0 tube that covered roughly 3/4 of viv (plenty of room to “escape” if needed
No water in cage, though I give weekly baths and provide fresh veggies that sometimes have water

Husbandry;
Feed 2-3 times a day (BSFL mainly but also crickets/other worms to incorporate a variety)
I don’t dust the BSFL with calcium, since they are already high with it
Multivitamin powder a couple of times a week
Poops once a day, always healthy
Never really has hard time shedding
Seems healthy to me, but these are very hardy creature and they hide illness well.

I will upload more pictures tomorrow. He’s sound asleep right now and none of the pictures I have show his full body. Thank you! :)

Are you feeding salads? On the feeding board there is a nutrition website- please go look - your dragon needs greens everyday - please start feeding those- ASAP-- if you need any help getting him to eat his salads please ask- otherwise everything sounds good-- more pics would be good

Sorry I completely forgot about those! I give him fresh veggies every single day. I offer mustard/collard/turnip greens, escarole, endive, bell peppers, squash, etc. I have been giving them to him every day since we have gotten him. He loves his veggies! I sure got lucky. Again, my bad. Completely forgot to mention!
