    Grey beard and hard stomach help please

    Have you been monitoring the basking temperatures. It is most accurate to use an infrared temperature gun. I think for adults the hot spot should be 105F.

    Can hatchling bearded dragons eat Dubia roaches?

    Hello, My dragon's eggs just hatched. I was assuming I could just feed the hatchings the baby Dubia that I raise. Are the Dubia too big?

    How much natural light do they need to get plenty of uvb?

    I think I read somewhere that 15 minutes in natural sunlight is equivalent to 6 hours under a VUB bulb. That can be a little vague because of huge variable such as what type of bulb you are using, what climate and elevation where you live, etc. But yes, 30 minutes is definitely good. I live...

    Natural Sunlight For Beardies

    Great idea! My dragons love natural sunlight and being outside. It is possible that they can store the natural Vitamin D in their bodies because I think that birds and humans do. 15 minutes of sunlight is similar to 6 hours under a UVB bulb but even healthier. However, when they are in...

    Yes. What CooperDragon is good. Also read this article "Coccidia & Parasite Infection Care" which is listed in the articles section of this site on the right-hand side of this page. It's under the sub-heading of Care and Husbandry in the Articles section.

    Juvenile Beardie Ill?

    So Sorry to hear of your problems so far. I Doubt that brumation would be the issue as I just recently read that most dragons will only try to bromate in their second year and after. That is the way my 2-year old female is acting now. My on-year male is very active. But my female still eats...

    Too much calcium?

    Hi. Sorry to hear of your dragon's dilemma. I would be terribly worried too. I own a UVB meter and they are great to have but you could just make sure you change your MVB once a year. Mark in a calender when your get a new one. Even 10 to 15 minutes of direct sunlight outdoors goes a long...

    Dubia are nice to have since they are almost odorless and easy to care for and breed. Unfortunately since they are a tropical species they might be illegal in Australia. Try to check around alitlle more. I have heard that locusts or grasshoppers are better feeder insects than crickets as...

    i need help

    I have bred tortoises. #1. You will never make a profit. #2. Don't breed a reptile that is not special when they are already bred way too often and are way too available. #3. Just freeze the fertile eggs to cause them to not grow and then discard them. It won't hurt them and it isn't mean.

    Baby beardie not eating

    Not sure about one month olds, but atleast make sure basking temperature is correct using either a digital remote probe thermometer or a temperature gun. I had to hand-feed my dragon's salad at first too. Mix dark greens with grated veggies into a fine mash. Add a small amount of...

    powersun or megaray?

    I have used MegaRay for many years for my tortoises. I do have one Zoo Med Power Sun now. I also own a UVB Solar Meter/radiometer to test all my bulbs. MegaRay is much better and lasts way longer... maybe for years.
