    No longer interested in food, and yet still poopin'

    So. We got a beardie from a coworker - He's 3. Was in a 'good but not great' exoterra setup with coil uvb. Fed mostly lettuces, hornworms, and the little red crunchy kibble (which he does love). We've had him since March 2022 - the first 2 months he was Piss'N'Vinegar incarnate- full of that...

    Do bearded dragons "know" the UVB bulbs are their suns?

    Can they actually sense the rays coming from those bulbs? My adopted boy lived in a tank with a spot/coil UVB for 3 years; we have him in a tank with a 34" Retpisun t5 mounted inside on the ceiling. On sunny days, he has been nonstop wanting to get out, and when he does he goes right to the...

    Constant Wallsurfing - a week of skittering

    So, We recently adopted a beardie from a family (the kids got tired of him, and he'd bitten one so they were all scared of him) He's a bit older than 3 they think. He's lived in a smaller 36" enclosure, all glass(exoterra) with a doubledome-heat & UV combo. We now have him in a 45" laminate...

    Relocating - increment or all at once?

    Hello there! we will be acquiring a 3-year old beardie that has been living in the same tank his whole life; a glass exoterra 12" x 18" x 36".

    Black scales - shed damage, fungus, or worse?

    Whew, I'm glad it doesn't look fungusy. It COULD be a burn; they have him in an exoterra that is around 12" tall. maybe they had a log too close and he got a bit singed. we've already decided to go ahead with this goober for next month. he is a bit grouchy but they admit they do not handle him...

    Black scales - shed damage, fungus, or worse?

    We've taken a look at an adoption that we'll be (most likely) taking home in march- a 3-year-old male who's not handled much - and he has a few disconcerting patches on him. His owners say they are 'left over from stuck shed'. He doesn't have anything on his abdomen, just a few black patches on...

    UVB Recommendation For 16" Tank

    Okay, thank you! When she's up i'll see how she acts with the shelves in. She has a few hides i've gotten her for xmas gifts for when she wakes up, so she'll have options to escape if she wants. (shes too spoiled lol) Good to know about the Glos! I actually have the same Arcadia bulb...

    UVB Recommendation For 16" Tank

    The tank has an upper shelf that is just over 5" away from the bulb, if i move it more towards the front, will it be safe? I'm worried it'll be tooo close to her. Also, what are the recommendations for Repti-glo? Our stores rarely sell reptisun, but lots of Glos. Just wondering if it's...

    Few Questions about URI

    Hey there, my poor baby has come down with a URI. She's been on baytril for 3 days now. I've never dealt with this before so I have some questions: 1- what is the acceptable temps at night? Do we raise the temperature overnight, 80-85? Or do we keep the temps 75? 2- do you need to avoid...

    New Enclosure relocating!

    d'oh! I forgot to include we've had her for just under 3 months now. She's comfortable with us, she is the BIGGEST cuddlebug. We reckon she wasn't handled much with her previous owners. Her owner moved out and left her behind to be found by the landlord, so she was alone for weeks without food...
