    Help! Superworm lost in enclosure

    I was feeding a superworm to my 3yr old beardie just now and it wriggled out of the chopsticks and burrowed into my substrate (50-50 topsoil and sand mix). I can't find it now. I was wondering if I could just leave it in there, or will it be an issue? I'm concerned about the little guy too and...

    Feedback on diet?

    Hey y'all, I'm sorry for clogging up the forum with my posts tonight but I really want to review how well I'm taking care of by 3yr old beardie, Ginger. I've heard that adult dragons' diets should be 80% greens and 20% protein. Ginger always didn't seem to have that much of an appetite. Her...

    Beardie not thermoregulating?

    My 3 yr old beardie is not moving from her basking spot (a hammock). She's been doing this behavior for a couple weeks now. The temps are hot enough - around 36C measured with a probe. However, she stays on the hammock all day and doesn't want to move even after basking after eating. When we...

    Beardie nervous?

    Hello all, My 3 year old female beardie seems to get nervous whenever we look at her. Her eyes go huge and she twitches/straightens up. She's completely fine with being handled and moved around, but I suppose she doesn't enjoy it. How can I get her more comfortable with eye contact/our...

    Are these succulents/grasses suitable for enclosure?

    Hi guys, I wanted to add some live plants to my beardie’s enclosure to fill up space. I heard that certain succulents and grasses are suitable for enclosures (edible and able to withstand temps/UV). I went to Home Depot today and found these, although I have trouble identifying what plants they...

    How do you guys feed crickets?

    We usually feed our 2 yr old girl ~5 gutloaded crickets 3-4 times a week. The thing is, we need to constantly remove and put back the decor every time there is a feeding. The crickets are so active and jump around onto various surfaces and into nooks and crannies, and our beardie struggles to...

    Beardie doesn't like being outside the tank?

    Hey guys, so my 2 year old female beardie doesn't seem to enjoy time outside of her tank. I try to take her out every day so she could stretch her legs and get some mental stimulation. But she stays in one place for a few minutes, then starts to make her way back to her tank. If I move her...

    Gulping + Occasional wheezing?

    Hey y'all, I've noticed that my beardie has started "gulping" recently (like a swallowing motion). It doesn't happen when she's alone, only when she's in sort of stressful situations. For example, when we pick her up or move her around. What does this mean? Does this mean she's just nervous...

    How to properly measure temperatures/UVB distance?

    This might seem like a dumb question, but what's the proper way to measure temps and UVB distance? Since the lights are hitting the back of your dragon, wouldn't the extra ~3" of your dragon's thickness add extra inches/degrees? (I have an adult dragon haha) For example, if your basking spot...

    Keeping beardie outside of tank?

    Hello all, I posted a similar question a few months ago but I don't believe I got the answers I'm looking for, and I have new information. Thank you to everyone who responded before, and here goes again! My beardie is a 2yr female and always glass surfs when we put her in her enclosure. She...

    Polymeric sand + Flagstones for substrate?

    Hi guys, I was thinking of upgrading my substrate to tile, but I was afraid poreclain tile would be too slippery and unnatural for my beardie. I was trying to find textured slate tiles, but they are so hard to find and typically not bumpy enough. I was thinking I could put some stone...

    Reabsorbing eggs?

    Hello everyone, Here's my beardie Ginger's (Female, 2 yrs old) journey with her first clutch of eggs. I am essentially worried if she is healthy and reabsorbing eggs is possible? Around a year ago (July 2020), she started presenting behaviors that made me suspect she was gravid. She was...

    Help! Beardie swallowed cherry pit?

    Hi guys, so I was outside with my beardie Ginger and I was feeding her pieces of cherry. A cherry rolled towards her and she started eating it. I tried to reach my hand inside her mouth (and got a nasty bite too), but she had already swallowed the pit. I am very concerned she will become...

    How to lower humidity? Dehumidifiers?

    The summer has made the humidity levels rise to 50-60%, sometimes 70%. How do I lower the humidity levels of my house? There are no bowls of water that are lying around. I am thinking of investing in a dehumidifier, but I don't know if they can lower the humidity to 30-40%. Most advertise that...

    Keeping beardie outside of cage?

    Hey all, so my beardie (2 yr female) hates being inside her enclosure and always tries to glass surf. We have her out of the enclosure for 12+ hours (the whole day), and she has taken a liking to a pile of pillows near a window. She returns to it every time after scampering around, so I suppose...
