enclosure dimensions


hello, we are planning to build an enclosure and i’m wondering about dimensions. we are looking at doing something 48”L x 16”D x 27”H my concern is about the 16” depth. the overall volume will be plenty but is 16” going to be too narrow? our little dude is only 3mo old so who knows what length they’ll end up. thanks in advance for any insights!

I would make the depth longer if possible. 16'' will be too narrow for an adult to be comfortable. They often grow to 20+'' long from nose to tail, and while they are able to turn and squeeze through smaller spaces, it's best to provide them with as much room as possible. If you're building your own setup, I'd make it as large as you have the space to allow for if you can.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
