Lost bearded dragon!

Postby RANGOKAY » Wed Oct 14, 2020 12:22 am

Hey guys I really need some help here, I have lost my bearded dragon. I usually let her roam around the house and she goes right back to my room and sleeps there but I’ve had no luck finding her. I’ve upturned my whole house and still no sign of her. It’s been three days already 😭

Don’t turn your house upside down, just relax and keep everything neat while looking. She’s likely behind or under your refrigerator or dishwasher. They all hide out under things. Mari is a free roamer but I limit her to my bedroom and if I can’t find her I just carefully look around but in no big hurry because I always find her within 5 minutes camouflaged against something.

Look under dressers book shelves toy boxes -- she is somewhere sleeping - set out some food for her and a basking light - maybe put some sort of powder on the floor and I am not sure what kind to use maybe some flour so you can follow the tracks if she shows up --

She'll come out when she gets hungry. Also think outside the box when looking for her. Mine likes to climb things and hanging out on the side of things. I couldn't find him for hours and when I went to do laundry he has hanging on the back side of the laundry hamper. They are great hide and sneak champs but she'll come out when she's hungry or cold.

Unfortunately there had been no sign of her and it’s been 8 days now, I’ve left her tank on the floor open with food and water in it. Hopefully she shows up soon

I hope she turns up for you, that's very stressful. Where are you, roughly speaking? My boy is just starting to slow down for brumation...

How old is she ? If she's near adult size she may have curled up somewhere , under something to try to brumate for a while. She'll come out eventually if you don''t find her yourself and will not be harmed by her long nap.

I’m in South Africa so it’s going into summer now, my beardie just turned 2 years old this year so she is probably sleeping somewhere

Update I found her ! Decided to have a look again when I got home and found her in the bar area behind boxes. I had unpacked the same area three times already, I’m glad she’s safe and found. Thank you for all the help everyone I really appreciate it :)

In the future you can probably find her by listening for scratching sounds. They shift in their sleep sometimes 😂

Great news! They usually turn up eventually. Everytime any of mine have gotten out, I find them sleeping in some dark corner or tucked up behind something where they feel secure.
