Can beardies play with birds?

Not open for further replies.


Me and my wife have 2 cockatiels, a beardy, a ton of fish, and 2 dogs (a boxer and a Chihuahua). The boxer wants to play with / eat (im not sure which) the beardy and the birds so the birds and lizard get their own room upstairs, now my question is whether it is wise to even see if they will tolerate each other if I let them out at the same time. I mean are there any diseases that they can catch from one another? Has anyone tried this?

birds are one of their natural predators in the wild. I personally wouldn't have them in the same room at all. It might cause a lot of stress.

still not a good idea, and size doesn't really matter that much. Smaller animals can dominate larger ones and large animals can be scared of things much smaller than them. Happens all the time. Fear is not always rational, even with animals.

huh, didnt really think it was a good idea, so have never tried it. But have never even though about him seeing them though. Right now they are in seperate rooms, but once we move we were planning on putting them in the same room. Might have to put a piece of cardboard on that side of the tank to keep them out of sight.

If you have, you will no how black a beardie will go when they see a bird...

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
