    Brumation - Lights Off?

    Thank you! I've been giving him a bath every week to 2 weeks, and after that he basks for a bit, then goes right back into his hide. I think I'll back down on lighting by a bit and just keep an eye on him. I'll try to get a weight next time he's out for a bath. Thanks again!

    Brumation - Lights Off?

    Hi - I've had my (aprox.) 5 YO Beardie since Dec. I have a Zen Habitats 4 x 2 x 2 with proper lighting and I use a CHE at night as my house gets down to about 60 at night. My question is... he appears to be brumating (he's been in his hide 24/7, eyes closed on and off) for the last 3-4 weeks. I...

    Strange Behavior - Help?

    Additional note - I just read the Brumation article on this site and it's very helpful!!! I have to assume, based on the descriptions in that, that this is indeed brumation. I will keep a close eye on him. Any other info is certainly appreciated! Thanks.

    Strange Behavior - Help?

    Hi All! I've had my re-homed BD since end of Dec. He is around 5 YO and had a vet checkup in Jan...all good. He really never had calcium, so just last week I started giving him some (dusted his BSFL and salad), and since Saturday he's been acting strange. He's sleeping a lot, and now he's been...

However - she found a little sore in his mouth along his gumline and decided to put him on antibiotcs (Trimethoprim Sulfa Suspension - .13ml once a day). After two doses, half of his beard turned black and stayed...

    Want a New Enclosure - Recommendations?

    Thank you, Karrie! Do you have experience with these being quality enclosures? I am looking at one on dubia.com now, but I'm not sure how good it is. I'd hoped to get personal experience from the responses. :-)

    Want a New Enclosure - Recommendations?

    Hi All! I was given an enclosure with my re-homed beardie and I hate it. It's huge, wooden, and I don't think it's set up optimally. I'd love to get a new one, so I'm hoping to hear from a few of you about your personal favorite enclosures based on quality, functionality, and not having to spend...

    NEW Beardie - A Few Questions

    Hi! I just got a Beardie. He's about 5 years old. I got his enclosure, too, but I had to clean out the sand and put tile down, which I did as soon as I got him. He's been hiding under his stone cave for about 3 days (eats only when put in front of him), so I took the cave out today. He is...
