    Stubborn MBD or old age? (Image)

    Thank you so much for your reply. I bought her bulb this January so in June I will look into the t5. I was trying to find out how to mount her fixture into her tank, but it doesn't have a diffuser on it and I didn't want her to get her tongue in there!!! And I'll hold off on the supers and...

    Shedding and Weight Loss

    How old is he? Assuming he is an adult... I've noticed sometimes it takes a while for mine to shed especially a full body shed. I wouldn't worry about him not eating sometimes Lucy won't eat for days and he IS shedding. Also he could have eaten a piece of gravel and it's stuck in there. I'd...

    Stubborn MBD or old age? (Image)

    I've had Lucy for 5 years when she was a year old and she's always been fun, happy, and healthy until about January she started showing signs of MBD. I took her to a vet and the vet diagnosed her with early signs of MBD said she was a healthy wait and suggested I dust her food everyday...

    Respirtory Infection?

    I have no idea how much she weighs... I can buy a gram scale tomorrow. She's about the same size as the beardie in the picture above if that helps any. Maybe a little chubbier.

    Respirtory Infection?

    I had a ceramic heat bulb before and it was WAY too hot. I will get one when I get paid in a few days, though. My main concern is alleviating her discomfort until her medicine comes tomorrow. Her coughing kept both of us up all night and I feel like I have a sick baby on my hands and don't know...

    Respirtory Infection?

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention she has balls. But I just found out a few months ago and really the whole gender issue isn't important to me. She knows her name and stuff and I'm not confusing her. I have been sleeping with an ice pack to keep her warm. How do I administer the natural supplements...

    Respirtory Infection?

    Hi! I left my dad to take care of Lucy for 3 days and I'm afraid she got too cold due to his neglect. When I got home, she hopped off her log very slowly and bobbed her head very slowly to greet me. I turned her lights on as they were off when I got there turned the heat in my apartment up to...

    Crickets, mealworms, romaine lettuce

    NO NO NO Any lettuce can give most animals the "poops", and mealworms have hard exoskeletons that can be difficult to digest. I understand that sometimes it's difficult to offer a "perfect" diet, and in no way, shape, or form do I think Lucy has the perfect diet. However, variety is key. A...

    Would You Change Your Beardie's Name Based on Gender?

    I got Lucy when she was a year old and she was named/sexed by her previous owner. She seems too small to be a male and has the little bumps, but she is a little territorial and HATES when I bring men home. She has a few other "male" behaviors. All in all I decided if someone guaranteed me she...

    Traveling beardie

    First off, my beardie didn't seem to sleep very well when I had a red heat light (freaked her out a bit too), and considering you probably don't watch yours sleep, I would go with an alternative option such as a ceramic heat emitter since we all know how cold schools can be. I can't tell you...

    Do I REALLY need to bathe her?

    Thanks for the reply!!! Never thought about a respiratory infection. I'll have to look more into that. Any links to recommend? :study: I just had the door open one day after my shower and she wandered in there during her daily exploration of the house and stayed in there. I always keep...

    Do I REALLY need to bathe her?

    Hi! Lucy (6 yr old) absolutely HATES water/baths. She even gets bratty when I drip warm water on her head or back. I hate to force her into anything that stresses her out. I feed her baby food for extra moisture. I keep a humidifier going all the time in my apartment (for the both of us)...

    Aggressive bearded dragon...please help

    Hi! Congratz on your new family member! :blob5: Substrate is a highly debated topic. Although it's not recommended and I'm changing soon, I've used the crushed walnut stuff from Petco with Lucy for years. For a baby I wouldn't recommend ANY loose substrate because they can't digest it, but...

    My new Beardie, with some questions!

    Hi! As for names, I can't help with that. Maybe wait a few weeks to get to know him! What kind of lighting are you using? Sometimes Lucy closes her eyes when she gets sleepy or is just relaxing. However, recently I've noticed when she's basking she'll close one eye or both eyes in a less...

    Why does Lucy seem so depressed?

    My 5 year old bearded dragon has been acting awful strange the past couple months. She's seemed "depressed" and hasn't liked to be held lately. She puffs up and turns her beard black and sometimes opens her mouth when I let her inside her pen then I usually leave her be. She went into...

    Lucy hates baths, and I hate giving them!

    So I'm having a heck of a time with this bathing thing. When I bathe her, I scrub the bath tub with dawn to get all our germs out and then with bathroom cleaner to get hers out. Every time I go to put her in the bath she climbs up my arm and eventually goes still. She climbs to the most...

    Auggie through his first year

    OH my god. He is absolutely ADORABLE! I can't ever resist those big headed babies at the pet store! I just want to take them all home! (but Lucy would get jealous). His colors turned out absolutely beautiful! I'm always so amazed as to how all beardies look completely different.

    How do I get rid of my hornworms?!

    I got two 25 count cups from mulberry farms and it is time for them to RIP. I am extremely squeamish. I seriously stick them in Lucy's pen and RUN away. Far... Far... Away. They are getting ready to turn into moths and the site said, "DO NOT RELEASE THEM INTO THE WILD" in that big 'look at...

    I just got 40 small hornworms for Lucy. I've heard they grow fast, but how do I judge how much to feed her? How hard/easy is it to breed them and how? I hate crickets because of the smell and noise. If I get frustrated with it and quit can I feed her moths? Also, what is the whole blue vs...
