    Possible life threatening- Impaction????

    Hello everyone, I am super concerned about my dragon. I left out of town and had a person taking care of him. She did a great job previously, however this time, she decided to feed him only big dubias because that’s all he wanted to eat. So instead of using the dubias I had prepared she took...

    Rehoming ??

    I have been going through some health issues and very much overwhelmed. I love my dragon but he gets very little time from me other than being fed daily and he really deserves more. I have been keeping him healthy but he doesn’t get much interaction. I am not able to handle him much and have...

    Eating less-worried

    Hi there, my dragon is about 9 months old now and the last couple weeks he has been eating much less. I used to be able to feed him 4-6 subadult/adult dubia a day. In trying to keep my colony going I had to switch him crickets temporarily (which he ate) and then back to smaller ones 1/2” or so...

    Socializing 6 mo old beardie

    Please help me on this. We got our Beardie at 4 weeks old. Due to several factors we had been unable to do much handling- if at all. Now we are trying it out again and he really doesn’t want to held or touched. It is near impossible to pick him up. Is there a good progression to follow? Should...

    Is this normal??

    My Beardie is about 6 months old, he is starting to eat more greens. I sometimes give him mealworms but he mostly eats dubias and loves them. He has a great appetite. Is this poop normal?? This is the first in a long time I was there to see him poop and it was fresh. Most times I see it after it...

    Out of town- lights issue

    So I was trying to go to my moms tonight to help out with something and return tomorrow. ( Everyone has Covid opinions and I respect them all, this is just a question regarding the lights for the dragon.) My husband leaves for work at 5:30 am and I usually turn off the dragons night time heat...

    securing branches-enriching environment

    My 14 week old beardie is doing well. I have been trying to make the tank a more enriching environment. I have 2 driftwood pieces that I wedge into a large rock. The rock is taking up too much space and I want to rearrange the driftwood. Any suggestions on how to secure the ends of the wood on...

    Lights out 2 hours early??ok??

    I won’t be home at my usual lights out time and I do not have a timer. Turning the lights off 2 hours early for only 1 day should be ok?? I won’t be back until a few hours after lights out and I don’t think leaving them on that long would be good. I’m thinking this might be the equivalent of an...

    Tail bands sudden change-Is this bad?

    This morning my 2 month old beardie’s tail bands are normally gray (the lightest part) and this morning they look closer to white. I just turned on his lights not long ago so I plan to go and check again after he warms up. Is this something to be concerned about? He just shed Oct 10-17 so I...

    Altering Feeding for Baby?

    My almost 6 week old baby beardie is absolutely not interested in eating in the morning. After some time I realized that until he poops, he does not want to eat. Which makes sense, I guess, because there is no where for the food to go yet in that tiny body. So is it ok to wait until I see that...

    Arcadia 50w projector and Zoo Med Dome - fit ok??

    Does anyone happen to know if you can use a Zoo Med Dimmable Clamp Lamp with Dimmer Switch (8.5") with a 50w Arcadia deep heat projector bulb? I can't seem to find the size dimentions of the bulb to know if it will fit inside that dome. I am pretty sure the two are compatible. Any suggestions?

    Lighting and Not Eating Greens

    Hello, we are on day 3 with baby beardie and a couple things are concerning me but maybe it’s no big deal. I’d like to know what you think. I have a hide in the enclosure that he never uses. But he has started to bask on a lower “branch” under the driftwood piece I have leading to his hammock...

    Did I over feed baby Beardie?

    This was our first day with our 4 week old. The breeder said to feed twice a day. AM with crickets and PM salad. I couldn’t get a hold of him on how many to feed it. So I remembered something like as many as they want in 10-15 min. So we counted 19 in the bag, dusted them and put them in. The...

    Heat projector question

    Can anyone tell me if you can use a zoomed or exoterra double dome fixture (like this one https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-Combo-Deep-Fixture/dp/B005KPMCPG) for a 50 or 60watt Arcadia heat projector? Or do I need a special fixture? I can't find clear information on this. Also, when using a Che or...
