    Rehoming My 2 year old Beardie- Boston

    Hi there. I maybe be interested. Do you have any photos? I have a nice big enclosure ready with quality lighting. My older dragon recently passed right after I built a second one for a young female I adopted last year so I have a nice, big, well outfitted enclosure ready.

    18 Month Old Male is not eating much...

    Hi all, I've had my guy for almost 2 years… got him form the local pet store at a few weeks old. He ate like crazy when he was young and swelled up to about 350 grams at about 8 months - the diet then was crickets and weekly greens, with 1 dusted feeding/day (5 calcium and 2 multi-vitamins...

    Vents?

    I don't think there is an exact science to this. Depending on how much leakage your front doors have and how many times a day you open them I would think a few square inches of ventilation would be fine. Depending on your aesthetic preferences maybe a 2 medium sized cutouts covered with screen...

    Waxworms

    I did this when my guy was little. He loves the waxworms so I'd lure into my hand with one, then give him another after I picked him up. If he was a bit freaked when I put him back down I'd toss a worm in with him so he'd "forget" about the stress. Worked just fine but don't epect this to...

    Pinkish/Whiting skin around the Mouth

    Well, mouth shedding was the cause. I came home today and the skin was all cracked up and peeling off. Thanks everyone. Brian

    4X2X2 Just about complete

    It's 3/4" ply from home depot. I actually used the precut project board material... It come ripped down to 2' x 4'. They aren't cut all that accurately - and though I new it - I didn't do anything to match them up so the whole thing isn't very square. That why there are trim pieces on the...

    Drop off in live food interest around 6 months

    It's an 80 watt megaray, less than a month old I think. It replaced a 6 month old reptisun 10.

    Drop off in live food interest around 6 months

    Well, I'm less concerned about not eating live food as I am about not eating much veggies or going to the bathroom I guess. Maybe I should have titled my thread differently. It sounds like both of your dragoons are still eating a bit and going to the bathroom daily/semi-daily? Brian

    Pinkish/Whiting skin around the Mouth

    Hey All, I came home today and my 7 month old Beardie had some discoloration around his mouth. It's pink looking, doesn't clean up with water and I don't think it's staining from his food. I tricked him into opening his mouth and the gums are the normal pink color and his teeth seems fine. I...

    My bearded dragon is acting really strange

    I just worry sometimes, Momomo. We all made mistakes early on no matter how much research we did before committing to a pet, but sometimes people don't seem willing to make the adjustments needed. I'm not suggesting this person won't do so, but we'll have to see.

    Drop off in live food interest around 6 months

    Hey All, I got my beardie at a few weeks old from the local Petco in August '12. Around 2 months ago, after eating crickets voraciously every day since I brought him home, he just stopped eating them. I'd been offering Kale, dandelion greens, bell peppers, green beans, and the occasional...

    My bearded dragon is acting really strange

    There is nothing harsh about pointing that out at all. If this was a dog no one would hesitate to point out that deliberately underfeeding it is simply neglect. Usernamesarehard, if you buy crickets at the pet store they are way more expensive than online. You can buy 500 or a 1000 crickets...

    New viv build lighting help please

    I think the only opinion that truly matters on this subject is your pet's. As long as you give them a big enough cage for a temperature gradient, a UVB free cool zone, and a non-UVB basking spot so he can warm up without radiation then go ahead and provide background UVB. The beardie will...

    Planning for large vivarium.

    Well, the math really isn't that tough. I said the bulb + fixture was 6 inches - a Par 38 bulb is, by itself, 5.31 inches! Some of that is the thread so even if you mount a future that only added an inch you still at about 6.5". And remember that a 2' tall enclosure is not 2' inside... 3/4...

    Planning for large vivarium.

    I agree that 4 feet is a bit excessive, but I built a 4x2x2' recently and I wish I had an extra 6" or so of head room. It all depends on the minimum distance of your bulbs. My megaray needs 15" and the bulb + fixture is 6" long. That leaves very little space for your pet let alone an elevated...

    any mega ray update?

    For background light opinions differ, but 5000 to 6000 Kelvin is good ( I use a 6500 myself). As for CRI get the highest rating you can, I think 85 and up would be considered acceptable. Fwiw I just got my first megaray a couple weeks ago, the beardie seems to like it just fine. For the...
