Heya! Im looking into adopting a bearded dragon currently.
Ive done plenty of research however its hard to find answers for these questions:

1. I have a degu that runs on his wheel very often during the day, will this stress the beardie out?

2. I have to leave for 2 weeks in a couple months, will my dragon miss me/get stressed when im gone? (there are people in my family to care for him while im gone)

3. Is it difficult to bond with a beardie, and how long should I wait after getting him to handle him outside his terrarium?

Thank you !

He will likely get used to the running on the wheel and be ok.
2 weeks isn't to long as long as there is someone there to look after him.
Bonding can take time and effort, be patient it takes a while. As far as getting him out, it depends on the dragon 🐉. Some are ok with it straight away, some take time to warm up to you and will be rather flighty. Just use your own judgment once you see how it acts.

They can make wonderful pets. Let me address your questions:

Having a degu running on a wheel nearby should not stress out your bearded dragon. Bearded dragons are generally tolerant of noise and activity in their surroundings. Just make sure the degu's enclosure is secure and cannot be accessed by the bearded dragon to prevent any accidental harm.

Bearded dragons do not form the same level of attachment to their owners as some other pets like dogs or cats. However, they can still recognize familiar faces and may show some signs of missing you when you're away. As long as there are responsible caretakers in your absence, who can provide the necessary care, food, and attention, your dragon should be fine.

Bonding with a bearded dragon can be a gradual process. Spend time near the terrarium, talking to your dragon, and offering food. Allow the dragon to get used to your presence and build trust. After a week or two, you can start handling your dragon for short periods of time outside the terrarium. Begin with short sessions and gradually increase the duration as your dragon becomes more comfortable with you.

When you look for a bearded dragon it is best to look at a licensed breeder. Lots of books/articles say to pick the biggest baby (same age as other ones) as it will be the healthiest one however this is up to you.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
