New beardie Mama (:

Not open for further replies.
Hello world! I'm the new owner of a baby bearded dragon. She's mine and my boyfriends first pet, but I informed him if anything ever happened between us she would belong to me and he could only have visitation! We couldn't decide on a name, I wanted Lily and he wanted Ella so she is now Lily Ella. We actually joined this site because she gave us a little health scare, but now I think she was just stressed out. I am glad I found this site though because everyone on here seems so helpful! Its crazy how much I can love one little pet so much but I really do. She is so cute I cant even deal sometimes, haha. Shes not specially ordered off one of those beautifully breaded beardie sites, she was actually an impulse buy because we thought we would just go look at their lizards at petsmart one day and I seen her and wanted her. The employees didn't tell us anything about her, how old, her sex or anything so I'm basically going off youtube videos teaching you how to tell between male and female and estimating her age by how long she is. She is almost 10 inches long and she is beautiful. I have only had her about one week and one day, and already have her eating, and loving, her veggies! From what I have read that's not an easy accomplishment so I am proud. Part of me cant wait until she grows up and the other part wants her to stay small forever!

Those are some great photos. What a cutie! Looks like she has a great setup too. I look forward to seeing more photos and hearing stories about her progress =)

We are new to BD-owning as well (about a week and a half), and I also kinda wish that he would stay small. I bet that his personality will develop more as he gets older, though! We also bought ours from PetSmart, but we planned it out prior to and set up his terrarium before we went to buy him. As far as guidance, it's a hit-or-miss with their employees, but she told me that she thought it was a male when we bought him.

So far he will eat squash and chopped up kale, but he prefers the squash mostly. The kale I have to hand-feed. Recently I bought a watermelon, so I plan on trying that tonight!

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.
