Petco

I needed some supplies, okay not really but every now and again I like to stop by Petco for something random- NO OTHER PETS but I always take a look around. The beardies were so cute but sad. Poop were on them- some big and some were small in the same enclosure. I mean it was more than the beardies in these conditions but the amount of lizards in 1 tank was so disappointing. The tanks were dirty...

The beardies were active because they ran to the front of the tank so that's a good thing but know prior to the picture, they were stacked. There was a second tank with less beadies but the tank was equally dirty.

I read on here often about people calling corporate and I think it's my turn because this just didn't sit well with me.

There were only young adult employees present in the store and only one employee who was truly invested in the goldfish...I mean really invested! That was it.
I wanted to rescue all of the beardies.

In general, I am about 2 seconds from wanting another one but I know I can't manage 2 enclosures and Rocky already runs me but I don't like what I saw.

It is hard to see. I always tell myself they won't be there long. Unfortunately beardies are extremely popular as such unscrupulous businesses cash in on them. I cringe to think how their breeders are treated.

Wait so people are buying them quickly ONLY to breed?

No no i was meaning the breeders petco and petsmart use to keep themselves supplied. (Notice i didn't capitalize pertco/smart? I don't think they deserve to be considered proper lol)

As far as i know they basically have a beardie mill, just like you hear about puppy and kitten mills.

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.

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?
