    How long can beardies be (act) gravid?

    Hi all - we think our Tifa might be gravid for the first time. She's 2 years and 4 months old, and her belly feels bigger and I'm feeling what I think are eggs around the sides of her torso. We happen to have a vet appointment scheduled for a checkup in 2 days so I should be able to get an...

    <2 year old keeps stomping one foot?

    Hey all, My 20 month old, Tifa, started stomping her back left foot yesterday for no reason I could discern. It's very fast and loud (you can hear it all throughout the house). When she did it the first time it was 3 times in one hour. After that it's been more like once every hour or two. Only...

    Possible tail rot?

    The tip of Tifa’s tail has been kind of black/discolored for several months now. Her tail has been through a few sheds in that time, but to be fair I’m not 100% she’s been shedding all the way to the tip. The blackish tip also appears slightly bent out of shape. She seems healthy and fine...

    Too much butternut squash?

    A couple weeks ago Tifa discovered that she loves butternut squash more than anything. She used to always refuse it but now she's deliberately digging through her salad to eat as much of it as she can. My understanding is that it's a perfectly fine staple veggie and daily consumption is okay...

    Returning to work, need advice for leaving beardie @ home!

    I've been out of work since I got Tifa last June (she's 14 months now) and I will soon need to return to the workforce. I don't know what I'll be doing or what my schedule will be like but there's a good chance it would be 9-5 like, meaning I'm gone before she wakes up and back late in the day...

    she peed liquid ALL OVER her viv...i think

    Tifa's poops have seemed a little more watery than usual lately. It's happened before but is more noticeable this time. She's also been more regular, becoming a daily pooper again. It's one of the first thing she does every morning and she seems eager to do so. As soon as her viv warms up she...

    Making such a mess of her salad...

    Seriously its tossed salad all over the place! I feel like I clean it up for her 10x per day and the next time I look over, it looks like a hurricane hit a Fresh Choice. And no matter where I put the bowl, she is just more interested in jumping in/out of it, laying on it, or whipping her tail...

    Too much calcium in urate/cutting back on supplements

    Hi all, A few weeks back Tifa (11-12 months) started getting her appetite back but also suddenly started taking several days (5-7) in between poops. The first time it took her 9 days and I got worried and took her to the vet. The doc couldn't detect any real impaction and she then had a very...

    Twitching upper-left arm (sick beardie? or spring fever?)

    Hi, I noticed Tifa was having a twitch/flutter in her left upper-arm yesterday all throughout the day. It stopped now and then, but seemed pretty persistent. So far this morning I haven't seen it, but it still made me worry. I googled it and almost all the topics I found were MBD-related...

    Appetite loss AFTER growth spurts - when to worry?

    Hey all, Super general question for ya. Tifa (7.5 months, 16.5", 355g) finished a month or two of nonstop growth spurts a few weeks back and has since been resting more of the day and eating a lot less. I freaked out at first, as I always do, because her appetite until then had been huge...

    Need advice for lg plant / climbing structure (out of viv)

    Hey all, hope it's good! (I tried to post this already and looks like it disappeared, apologies if this is a duplicate post) So Tifa is about 7 months or so now and we're trusting her a little more to hang out with us for a while outside her viv here and there. She loves chilling on us for...

    Can anyone identify what my dragon just pooped out?

    Hey all, First time I think Tifa is really sick since I've got her and I'm having a hard time diagnosing what's going on with her poops. Pardon in advance for the gross imagery, but I was hoping someone could help me identify what she just passed for the second time in the last week. I...

    Top of head discolored (right after she shed!)

    Hey all, hope you’re doing well ) I hope this is just my new owner jitters acting up like usual, but perhaps someone can help: Tifa’s now 5-6 months old or so and has been in basically a nonstop partial shed. If she’s not doing her torso she’s working on her legs and tail, and if not that her...

    Need a better source for BSFL & other feeders (USA)

    Hey all, I want to find a new main retailer to use to get our BSFL and other feeders. I've had so many shipping difficulties lately I'd prefer it be a one-stop shop where I don't have to coordinate/pay for different shipping form different places. Ideally, they'd have BSFL but also dubias, and...

    Dusting frequency when using BSFL as a staple

    Hey all, So I've had Anti on mostly BSFL for the last month and a half, and its been paying off. She loves them, and she's growing/shedding so fast I can hardly keep up. For variety I sometimes mix in dubias, but around here its easier for me to grab some crickets or supers in a pinch. Still...

    Big humidity gradient, tiny tank?

    Hi all, So little Anti is doing well, I think/hope! I'm not even 3 weeks in with her yet so I am still a total nervous wreck about every little thing :) She just shed for the first time since we brought her home and her colors only seem to get more impressive. Pics don't really do it justice...

    Nervous first timer needs setup feedback!

    Hi all! I brought home this adorable little critter 4 days ago after falling in love with ‘him’ (just a guess) at the vivarium. He’s a translucent, possibly some leatherback I’m told, about 2 months old. Full of personality :) It’s my (and my whole house’s) first lizard. Based on reading...
