Hello, I rescued a 2 year old male bearded dragon on Saturday from a man who couldn’t take of him and didn’t look after him properly. I have never had a bearded dragon before but did the research and got his set up all correct for him apart from substrate as the man said he eats sand and ended up in the vets so I’m trying to figure what to give him instead so I’m just using what he was using for now. So he pooed today for the first time since being with me and I’m unsure if this looks ok or not I have googled some say it can be normal some say maybe not so just wanted to get an opinion of someone who can see his poo. Thank youu

the poop doesn't actually look bad. i'm more concerned about the substrate, which you mentioned. i would replace it with non-adhesive shelf liner. it is super easy to keep clean. some people will also do slate tile for part or all of the tank to help keep nails filed down. i personally do just the shelf liner because sir henry of scales runs around the house a lot so his nails file down that way instead.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
