I tried to throw my dog rope-ball for Constanople to fetch it-that failed.I brought him up to my High School track-he just sunned himself.I bought a baby mouse-the mouse was too fast.I put a leash on him and jogged-that failed.I even bought a hamster wheel-he got into it,but that was it.Any ideas....

I'm not sure I really get you tbh.

They dont need loads and loads of exercise. I let Yoshi out for a run in the living room every day for about an hour, but thats it. thats all they need???!!

I have seen many adult BD way too fat,ugly.Mine is sub-adult but a great body-14" but not fat.I do not overfeed.


Hatchling Member
right.....your point being?

if yours isn't overweight then you don't need to over exercise it?

in reality, it is better that these guys are means they are healthy, its the type of lizard they are...short and stocky. Unless you are feeding strictly waxworms and no veggies than being fat for a dragon means being healthy.

Your original post is confusing, what point(s) are you trying to make? Or, is this meant to be a joke?

:lol: Ha ha ha!

Naw, I don't think OP was seriously expecting his beardie to fetch a ball. But he sure did get our attention, which is exactly what he wanted. :mrgreen:

SO! Think of a bearded dragon being kinda like a scaly pig. Built to carry a LOT of fat without any adverse effects. They also don't really move around much. IIRC, they spend much of they day basking, punctuated by an hour or so of rooting around for munchies, and maybe a short sprint after an um-cooperative snack.

We can easily re-create this short period of activity by letting our beardie roam around the house for a bit. For variety, we could also go to the park, being very careful that the dragon doesn't eat anything it shouldn't.
MY beardie exercise's put in the sink put enough in till they float and she will swing her arms and legs. And yes i watch my baby the whole time she is swimming. Need to get a video of it

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
