    extremely short nails?

    hi all, i recently noticed chompys nails are very short. i admit i probably don’t cut them often enough, but when i do i definitely do not cut them this short. however- chompy is a VERY active beardie and spends the majority of his time running around, climbing, and exploring. when he wants to...

    brumation? and diet

    hi all! at what age do beardies start brumating? i’ve tried googling but answers are inconsistent. chompy is 10 months (he’ll be 11 mo in 10 days) and he’s displaying the basic signs of brumation (sleeping more and decreased appetite). it’s wintertime here so it makes sense. how can i get him to...

    tank stand

    hi all, i’m going to be buying my boy a 180 (72”x24”x24”) gal tank in about 2 months, and i can’t seem to find a stand for it. i do not want to put it on the floor because i have two cats and a dog, and it would be difficult to open. do y’all know any good stands/where to find any? thanks!
