Meet my baby Jude

So excited to get my first bearded dragon! Did lots of research but still worry I'm getting it all wrong. He/ she shed today which was a bit worrying but as soon as the skin was gone she was running round again like a maniac. This is her post shed. Does she look okay?

Thanks guys. I have just removed all the sand from her vivarium and she looks really annoyed and covered in stress marks. Hope she knows it's for her own good!

How are you guys making sure your bear dies get enough water? Jude is fine eating as she is managing about 20 locusts a day but really hates being sprayed and baths. I don't want her to get dehydrated as she is still soooo little

I wouldn't bother with the spraying. Limit baths if she doesn't seem to enjoy them. If she's eating well, just make sure the locusts are well hydrated with fresh veggies and/or some plain water gel/cubes and she will get plenty of hydration from eating them.

He is doing really well. I have now tiled my viv as the pet shop advised me to use sand. He is eating about 20 - 30 size 3 locusts a day.

Haha I love the picture of him basking with his mouth open. He looks super happy and relaxed.

We managed to weigh and measure him today. He is 9 inches including his tail and weighs 44 grams which is a 10 gram gain in 5 days! We were told that he was 2 months when we got him almost 3 weeks ago. Does that sound about right?
He really likes being handled now and was desperate to come out again as soon as we put him back.

I'm glad to hear he is curious and energetic. The growth is very good and the age estimate is probably pretty close.

Hey Nancy!

I got mine from Petco and they said 4 months because the owners told them before giving him up.

But he's plump and don't hesitate to say anything if you think there is anything ever wrong with him. He's very healthy though so don't worry too much. His new skin is fine.

Did you get the name Jude from The Beatles song? If so, awesome! If not, thats cool. I like The Beatles so seeing Jude made me put on the song.

You got it Blue Dragon - it is from the Beatles song. We don't know if she is a boy or a girl yet so it will suit both. I am going to call her a she for now though.
She has started waving her arm to me and my daughter Maisy who is 10. It is sooo cute.
She is a bit off her food today and I noticed some pieces of skin on the floor so looks like she is shedding but I have no idea where from.

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?
