Perhaps these is a silly question, but what volume constitutes a dusting?
When I originally picked up our beardie Spyro I was told by the pet shop pinch of Caci dust or Vits into the crickets tub (tub 50 - 100 Crickets) give it a shake and feed. but in that tub is also the bug grub, it does not seem a very efficient way of dusting, would there even be enough on the crickets from just a pinch?!
Iwould love to know how others apply there "dustings"
I know that's a good question. With the calcium there is no real definite answer but just do so lightly and more often as babies [ every bug meal ] than for sub adults + adults. It's a bit of a guesstimate with every dragon, esp. since some dragons eat more insects than others and then there's calcium WITh D3 and without. I alternate those with my babies [ when I had babies ] and as they got near adulthood I only dusted every 3-4 times a week. As adults, 2-3 times a week. This seems to work for me.
It’s the 160 watts. It gets pretty hot in his basking spot, sometimes up to 109. I’m getting a new fixture and my husband is going to have to mount the uvb tube closer. It’s an aquarium tank with glass all around so it’s difficult to put the tube light closer. I currently have it sitting on the rim of the tank.
Okay lol so as I was told my baby was a boy when I rescued him hehe well I took him to my vet and was advised he is a she ! I was thinking of renaming her to Virgo from Toothless any suggestions for names
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
