I just adopted this little guy and he is so dehydrated and needs uv so bad. this is how I got him. im planning on getting the usb in a new thing with a reflector but also mount it inside his enclosure. Now I don't know if this thing was built for a beardie because there are no ramps to even climb the levels? and also the rocks scrape on his belly when he moves around and he cant even move around I've had to catch him a million times. There is tile on the bottom. but I am so confused. do I attempt to take the whole thing apart? do I find ways to build him a ramp? do I lay reptile carpet? please help he is in need of so much care and his environment is hindering his health.

Are you able to take all that foam fake walls off and just open it up to just have the walls and floor. Get a small dropper of some kind and drop water over his nose to get him water asap. If it were me I’d scrape all that stuff off the walls and leave the tile. What uvb are you using? Here’s a link to the best uvb on the market.

Hi there, is Klitschko named after the boxer ? [ I know there are 2 brothers ] . I agree that you should make more room somehow if you can. Is he able to get around O.K because scraping his stomach isn't a problem unless he's suffering from MBD and in bad health.

he got a bath and drank too much water and threw it up so I did start dripping water on his nose. this cage is so weird, you can tell it was hand made but im going to try and see if the rock comes off. thank you for the link!

Yes he is! They also survived Chernobyl. thought I would give him a strong name. he kind of struggle because the ledge is so small he rolled off of it earlier so I put him on the bottom. I don't think he has MBD but I think that if he would've stayed with the past owners he would have because he came with prescription proteins and vitamins for MBD.

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?
