I will have to check out the facebook page again. I mostly go there to see everyone's pictures. I check this and the repticzone uro page every day though. I just love seeing everyone else's lizards. I also love to watch beardie and uro videos on youtube. I just love lizards I guess! If you haven't seen it yet.. you have to watch the uromastyx belly tickle / belly rub videos on youtube. It's SO cute.

Porcelain tile sounds perfect. Put up some pictures when you have it all figured out!

I will have to check out the utube videos and I will definitely put up some pictures once I have it figured out.

I have a question about flowers. I have roses here and I read that they like them. Do I just feed them the pedals or do I take the whole head of the flower and give it to them? They didn't seem very impressed about the pedals. Same thing for other flowers of course.... do I feed the whole flower or just the pedals?

With roses, I feed him just the petals because the green part of the rose is very tough. Hibiscus you can feed the whole flower. Dandelions you can feed the whole flower. Pansies - whole flower.

I found that Gordo was not much interested in rose petals either. He likes dandelions and pansies. I have not tried hibiscus because I don't have any. You have to make sure that there are no pesticides. That's why I don't feed him anything that wasn't grown on my property. I also avoid the rose bush that's in the corner of my yard because I don't know if the neighbors use pesticides.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
