A thread chronicling Hugo's journey (and mine) Because I take hundreds of pictures and need to put them somewhere!

After TONS of help from other users, I got his new UV bulb set up this morning and he was in love with it. Had to shuffle a few things around in his starter tank so he could get optimal basking in, but overall, he seemed pleased!

This is post-breakfast buffet :) I've got some dubia roaches coming in next week and I'm friggin' excited to see how he likes them. So far, Hugo has eaten everything I've offered and been phenomenal about hand feeding despite being such a young dude. We've had him about four days!

Current goal is to put a bit of weight on him slowly but steadily, I've been letting him graze daily and offering him as many crickets as he wants x3 daily until he seems disinterested or lets me know (by pawing) that he'd like to go back to his tank. We feed him in a separate tub so he doesn't bang into anything during feeding time, plus it allows me to gently handle him at least twice daily.

Might just be biased, but he's the best little dude.

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
