Hello everyone!

I usually avoid forums of any kind, as I usually get bad experience on them.

Although, since I'm gonna be a beardie momma.. what else can I do? :D

So.. my questions are:

Any specific basking temperature for a beardie of any age? (I need that in Celsius)

How to tame them?

What to feed them? How often?

Can you "potty" train them? If so, how?

How warm should their water bath be? (Celsius)

Can baby to juvi beardies eat mealworms?
(I am scared of crickets, and hoppers [to death lol])

Or should I be getting small dubia roaches?

If any new questions arise, I'll ask here ^^

Thank you! :)

Sorry.. Last question. Should my beardie get insects once per day everyday, same with veggies?
If they’re a baby you can give them insects 2-3 times a day, depends on how many they eat. For example with small dubias I used to give mine 10-15 per feeding, 2 feedings everyday. Or you can let them eat as many as they can in 10-15 minutes. Just make sure they don’t eat anything 3 hours before bed to ensure digestion.
If they’re a juvenile feeding insects once per day is fine. Then if they’re over one year old you wanna give less insects, some people feed every other day, some do twice a week, just less insects in general.
