Hi, welcome to the forum. I'm not sure what the temps are in south Africa. What are the temperatures during the day and at night? Is it the same year round? Does he get sun and have shade available at all times?

Is the rabbit cage completely enclosed so that no bugs or any type of other critters could get to him? What if a bird lands on top of the cage, that could scare him very badly even if it couldn't get to him and he wouldn't be able to hide from it, that would be awful.

If it was me, I wouldn't keep a beardie in the garden no matter if the temps were right or not. Perhaps a short time during the day would be ok as long as shade was available to him. They need human attention too.

Hi thanks anyway here its hot specialy now its around 30 up the cage is in both sun and shadow and sun comes up at 430 so untill 1730 so enough sun during the day the kids play with here wheb they come from school so 1400 until 2000 she is in the house with them
the cage no bugs fly yes but she doesnt look at them the night is colder but still warm very humit here in durban
But i spook again to the guy who sold me and he says that they live in the dessert and that there it gets cold also at night so i guess she is okay for now for the summer and then in winter i will find something for inside

p.s how much veggie do they eat i gave here difirent things but she eats bitty bitty from everything i give ?

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
