    Obsessed with Franklin... Too obsessed?

    Hello! I adopted a bearded dragon a few weeks ago. She was given to PetSmart because the previous owner was unable to take care of her. They had her in the back room in a 20 gallon tank next to a cage of birds. When she was given to them, she had a case of mouth rot. She went through two rounds...

    Orion keeps running away

    So I’ve had my new baby, Orion, for a month and two days now and I absolutely love her. She’s 12 inches as of last week and has just finished her first shed at home (I’m thinking 4-6 months old from her length). I thought she’s been slowly getting used to me and calming down around me but after...

    Did I Wait Too Long?

    Hi guys! I am 100% new to keeping bearded dragons. I did a lot of research and set up a bioactive enclosure, gave it a month to get going, and last week brought a baby dragon home from Petco (I know, bad place to do that >_<). Now in my research, I read to not touch them for a week. I leave my...

    Uromastyx (New Lizard Owner!)

    I just got a male Yellow Uro yesterday, so I know about the settle in time taking a bit. What seems odd to me is that he slept on the floor of his cage in the corner and didn't really hop up on the basking rock at all for the day, I placed him on the rock this morning because I was worried...

    Hi everyone, this is Milo. My wife and I just purchased him from our local PetSmart. We are doing our best to give him a loving home :) I am curious if anyone knows what his coloration/morph actually is. PetSmart labeled him as a "Red Morph", but I haven't found any conclusive evidence of...

    Olive! - Bearded Dragon

    Hello! I have had Olive for a year and a half now, about! The decision to take her into my care was kinda… abrupt. I am still learning and freak out at every time she does something weird and new. Luckily, I have a reptile vet not too far away with reasonable quotes! Here is a picture of her...

    Male or Female Beardie

    Hi all, I got my beardie back in November and they're 6 months old (based on size and growth over time). I've been trying to determine their sex, but I feel like I'm doing it wrong? I've checked both on their belly and lifting up the tail and it doesn't seem clear. It seems like some pores have...

    There’s shed in my beardies poop.

    My beardie is named Mango. She’s about 3 months old. Today she pooped and it looks like there’s shed mixed in there. Should I be concerned?

    Hi guys! New beardie owner here. So I actually just got my beardie yesterday, he's 4 months old. He was chilling on my arm today when I noticed a red moving dot on his nose, just one tho.

    I have a 5 to 6 month old bearded dragon and he has been shedding lately. So far he’s only shed his head arms and tail but his main trunk has not shed it’s very dark and there’s parts of it that I could peel but I’m afraid to peel him. I’ve been giving him soaks and misting him. I am having...

    Glass surfing

    Recently just bought a juvenile bearded dragon. He occasionally glass surfs but he frequently does it a lot when I turn the “night” lamp on when it’s time for bed. Does anyone know why he does this as I want him to be as happy and as healthy as possible?
