    First time spring crazies

    Yeah he'll calm down and look out the window for a little but then he just wants to run laps going in and out of his tank for a while. I feel bad when I have to leave for work he knocks everything over in his viv while I'm gone. How long does spring fever last? I've heard it could be months...

    First time spring crazies

    So my 1 year old male beardie seems to have been having the spring crazies the past few weeks. Normally he's content to just chill and bask and wander around outside a little but now he's constantly moving and wanting to be let out to run and he tires himself out by 4 pm. Is this just normal...

    Cleaning marker off beardie?

    So Rango decided to run around on my desk and somehow got a couple streaks of black marker on him. I tried washing it off with soap and water but it didn't work. Any suggestions for beardie friendly cleaning products that may get marker off?

    How long does brumination last?

    His light is on from 7:30 a to 8:30 pm so I think he's getting enought sleep. He's been on an off bruminating for 3 months now.

    How long does brumination last?

    Hi, paranoid beardie owner here- just a quick question about semi brumination. My 1 year old has been on/off bruminating since November and a few days ago he got active and then went back to sleeping all day. Since it’s March I thought he’d be coming out of it by now? Is this normal behavior...

    Trouble falling asleep?

    Ok hopefully. He did try to immediately hide this morning when his lights went on I’m really not sure why. He’s still eating and pooping fine his hot side time is 100 and his cool side temp is 80. I checked and the UVB is still good so I’m not sure what’s bugging him.

    Trouble falling asleep?

    It’s typically 70-75 in the tank at night. He’s most restless for the first few hours after the light goes off when the tank is still cooling so maybe that’s what bugs him. My roommates do make some noise which may bug him but it didn’t used to bother him so I’m not sure what’s up.

    Trouble falling asleep?

    Past few days my beardie has been really restless at night just moving around at night and sometimes sitting up at night. I thought he was maybe being kept up by light so I made sure it was super dark in his room but no luck. Is this something to be concerned about?

    Eating Veggies

    I attached a picture of him- I'll try some silkworms, I have tried BSFL with him before but they kinda freaked me out because he didn't digest any of them and pooped them right out but I guess I can give them another shot. I can cut back protein to 2-3 x a week, about how many bugs do you...

    Eating Veggies

    So I have a common question about getting Rango to eat his veggies, he's a year and 3 months old so I know he should transition to more veggies now but he really hates his salads. I've tried adding fruit (he picks it out), dusting with bee pollen, various "salad dressings", and adding bugs but...

    Best way to deal with high UVB?

    Thanks, I'm going to lower the basking shelf to hopfully decrease the UVB some, but is it harmful to them to have an area that has pretty high UVB like 10 or so? Cause he doesn't really seem to avoid it but I just wanted to make sure it doesn't cause any damage. He does occasionally close an eye...

    Best way to deal with high UVB?

    So I just got a solarmeter and currently my reptisun T5 HO is in a reflector about 12 inches from the basking shelf I have and for the most part the UVB in the tank is fine except directly under the UVB tube the solarmeter is reading up to like 13 which I know anything above 8 is probably not...

    first time brumination

    Thanks, sounds like it's just winter slow down then. Maybe I'll do horn worms for a while then to keep him hydrated. His UVB is only a month old so should still be good. Just out of curiosity when do yours start to come out of it, is it not util spring?

    first time brumination

    So I'm just paranoid but my 1.5 year old beardie lately has been acting lethargic, basically he doesn't run around and act crazy like he used to and he mostly just lazes around under his basking spot all day and falls asleep early. Weird thing is though that he still really wants to eat his bugs...
