Important Questions Regarding Bearded Dragon Care

[edited by beardie to add the following]
For those who are about to cut and paste this list for someone to answer, please stop and read this for a moment. Do not take this whole list and past it as a response to someone seeking help. While I understand there are questions needed, it's starting to become apparent that the increased posting of this list of questions is becoming a bit of a turn-off to people coming here to seek advice and assistance. It's not that they have to answer a few questions, but that it is being presented that they must fill out this questionnaire before anyone will talk to them, making their first encounter with the community a rather impersonal one. If you do take from this list of questions to paste, please select the specific questions that are relevant, and include a bit more of a personal note in your response.

If you are seeking help, offering as many answers to these questions as you can will help people try to provide more complete and accurate advice, so please do try and answer as many as you can, if you initially post with answers to the question list.

Thanks. -Alex

I think a lot of us missed them. All the moderators are going to read them over to see if they should be changed or updated at all.

Thanks Diane! I was looking high and low for them the other day because I was to lazy to write them out.
I had to ask Vicky where they went it was driving me nuts that I couldn't find them. :lol:
