    Heat Lamp on Bug Cage?

    Oh, it’s unfortunately plastic, I wish it was just mesh because I’d feel more comfortable using a heat lamp on it. His heat requirements are just under 90 degrees, around 82-87 degrees. Not sure if you can help if you haven’t used a plastic one before, idk, but it’d appreciated if you could. :)

    Heat Lamp on Bug Cage?

    So I know a bug cage certainly isn’t good for any beardies or anythin, but recently there have been a lot of juvenile snakes around. There’s at least 3 baby garter snakes I see everyday, and I enjoy handling them. There’s one baby snake in particular I enjoy though, as I know for sure who its...

    New 7 month old male bearded dragon

    Be patient with him, I’d make sure he sees you’re the one giving him food so he learns to associate you with food. Give him about a week or two to settle in before any handling, but if he accepts pets, gently touching him while he eats or basks should be okay. He should start realizing you won’t...

    Nasty Juvenile Dragon

    Okay, that’s good. While it is suitable for him at a small stage, 20 gallons will need to be increased to around 40 gallons at minimum when he’s older. Does he happen to have any caves or anything that he can hide in? It may be an issue of him feeling vulnerable or something. Otherwise just give...

    Paper Towels Aren’t Food

    So today while I was cleaning some poop off of Healy’s basking rock, he did something he’d never done before. He tried eating the paper towel, acting how he does when I hold a hornworm above him and kind of make him run around the tank for it (gotta make sure he gets his exercise before I reward...

    Nasty Juvenile Dragon

    My suggestion would be to feed him some insect, and while he’s distracted eating them, very gently pet his backside. I‘ve done this with Bepis, my turtle, as well as two stray kittens that had turned up in my yard. I know he’s not either of them, but it could still work to a point. It’s also...

    Weight Concerns

    Hi, I know I’ve already gotten an opinion from the previous replier, but I’m wondering if I could also have an opinion from you. I have recent pics in my last reply to you, so if you have an opinion to give, that’d be great. :) Sorry if I seem pushy or something lol, just worried for Healy.

    Weight Concerns

    Okay, thank you. :) I’ll see what I can do about getting live insects. As of late, ordering them live has been difficult due to it being 80-90 degrees and I don’t expect them to be alive. And unfortunately my father just says to catch them outside, so that’s not very trustworthy either. Healy...

    Weight Concerns

    Okay, thank you. :) Will def do that. I do have some pics I took earlier in the previous reply, if you’re able to give me some advice. :)

    Weight Concerns

    Okay, thank you :). He usually does drink the water on his nose, and he loves to lick it off his hide or the sides of his enclosure if I spray it there. He’s done this since I got him, and it’s always seemed to be enough, along with his baths that used to be weekly up until the tub seemed to...

    Weight Concerns

    Just found some old pics of Healy I thought I’d add. These are all from the past year or so, none are particularly recent. As you can see, he seems to always appear a bit ruggy or wrinkly. One hip bone also looks to appear a little visible, but maybe that’s just me. Again, I’ll take pics...

    Weight Concerns

    Hi, Haven‘t been here for a while, as Helios has been healthy overall this past year. However, today I noticed he appeared a little skinny. Only a few of his rib bones were visible, so I don’t know if this is cause for concern. Beardie skeletons can be weird lol. Though only one of his fat pads...

    Sperm Plug Questions

    Helios hadn’t had a bowel movement for a few days so I got worried. I knew he shouldn’t be impacted as he hadn’t had any superworms in the past few weeks, only crickets, hornworms, and his usual greens. I went and checked his vent, and saw what I thought was dried up poop. When I went in with...

    Red Urate? (Content Warning for Imagery)

    Ah, alright. I was unaware that there was a risk of impaction with the dried stuff (they usually just crumble in his mouth when he eats the dried insects, and the red pellets do get squishy almost as soon as they get moist), but I’ll keep an eye on that as well then. I only feed the superworms...

    Yeah, thank you! He’s been doing pretty good so far ^^ It’s still a bit sad without Bee, but that’s okay.

    Asking for Opinions

    Aww, I’m really happy your little guy’s alive! I don’t know about a rescue dragon right now, but maybe in the future I’ll try it out. I’d just be afraid of messing up especially if they’re already in poor condition.

    Red Urate? (Content Warning for Imagery)

    Helios has been doing great since I got him. I haven’t been on here in a bit, but there’s something I’m a bit concerned about. This morning Helios left me some poop in his tank, but I noticed that his urate was red. The red bits are kind of spotty. Not sure if it’s blood or due to some food. I...
