Great judgement

Postby loljelloclowdz » Sat Jun 12, 2021 4:05 pm

I am bored and looking at reviews for PetSmart’s bearded dragons just to see all of the cute pictures of people’s baby beardies and I stumbled upon this absolutely genius picture.

I know they are herbivores but this just seems like a stupidly dangerous move as an iguana can trample or tail whip a beardie which would not end well at all.

We also have someone holding their hatchling upside down on their back 🤦🏼‍♀️

Thats why you just stay away from sites like that. The amount of people who own reptiles and treat them horrendously is staggering.

Join a facebook beardie group if you want to see lots of pictures. Many of the groups won't allow pics or even discussions about beardies hanging out with other animals.

Iguanas are herbivores but they are also opportunistic and would happily eat a little beardie if hungry enough.

Thanks for the advice, I love seeing baby beardie pics — especially beardies that have been prepared for & weren’t just impulse purchases with the crappy zoo med kit with the awful coil “uvb” bulb and purple/red heat light. Ugh, the amount of people who I see using a colored heat bulb drive me crazy, how does one lack so much common sense as to say “that’s hard on my eyes, it’s probably hard on their’s too.” ?

This person said they went back to buy their beardie a “friend.”

Did they not Google “can I house two bearded dragons together?”

Oh yeah I never noticed that, I just saw he was black and thought “he’s so distressed omg.”


Btw I went into Petco just to look at the fish the other day while my mom was next door getting something & I literally saw a fish just come up and rip the tail fin off of one of them & it made me so sad. Petco has no common sense when it comes to housing fish. (Idk fish care at all but something tells me that something isn’t right if one species of fish is attacking a different one & consuming pieces of them.)

Common sense is a flower that doesn't grow in everyone's garden my friend!!!
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
