My mischievous Bandit

She's the cutest little reptile I've ever seen. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would own a beardie. I've always heard negative things about them. Boy, were all the things I've heard wrong... I've learned not to freak out over the small things anymore, that a reptile is a reptile and does as she pleases. I've learned how to properly care for her all because of the wonderful people on this site and I would like to thank you all for all the advice. I bought her when she was around 5 inches.. She's now over 8 :) I bought her July 24th at a Petsmart near my work.She fell off a tree when we approached the tanks and ran to the glass when I was looking at her. I would say she picked me instead of me picking her :) I did hours upon hours of research but I made my mistakes especially with those "starter kits" but now I've fixed everything and we are on our road to a healthy, long beautiful life. Without further ado, here's some pictures :)
Our first day together!

So sorry to hear it. You’ve been on the site a pretty long time. I’m glad it and the community has been able to help you through it all. Farewell Bandit.

I’m so sad. My heart is broken. I can’t believe how much this beautiful little thing broke my heart. I’m looking at my previous posts and I’m so sad 😭

We decided to bury Bandit on Sunday. Today I tore apart her tank looking for a piece of shed as I had nothing to remember her by, no foot prints or clay molds. I remembered on Sunday, in my panicked state I had taken off a piece of her ear shed on our deck. Now it’s been 2 days. I get on all fours (I’m sure the neighbors think I’m nuts because of course they’re outside for this) and I’m circling, looking between the boards, back and forth to spots, trying to account for wind blown areas…

And I literally go, “God, please give me a sign to let me know she knew I loved her.” I gave it one more go. (I’m also not religious)

AND. I. FOUND. IT! Between 2 boards.

I called my husband and cried 😭

My beautiful baby girl. I love and miss you. ☹️

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.
HELP what's happening with my beardie!!he has a lifted up scale and it has shedding in a circle around it I noticed it for the first time yesterday and I have no idea what it is and when I shine a flashlight on him it's yellow around the scale what do I doooo
substrate looks scrumptious
My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
