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! :)

The crickets are more likeky to give the spider parasites lol (sadly im not kidding though)
Crickets are not the cleanest of feeders. Be care the recluse spiders ARE venomous don't give it a chance to bite you.

Thank you! I really worked hard on the set up.
She eats a bit of her greens from my hand, but then she stops to look at me.
When can they be sexed correctly?
I am a bit scared since I heard that female beardies can produce eggs (infertile though) without a male, and what scares me the most is that they can go egg bound and die.
It's not can, they will produce eggs even without breeding. Egg binding can happen, but if your beardie is healthy it shouldn't have an issue, you just have to be aware that it can happen so your ready on the off chance it does.

That’s kinda concerning, maybe just dump the whole tub out.
Are you sure? I mean- I went off dart frogs. To become toxic themselves, they must eat something toxic. So if those crickets ate a poisonous spider, they must be toxic themselves. Right? Well, no idea if they are safe to my lil pancake or not. Hurts me to dump the tub out-

I think venom doesn't really work that way. If the crickets did ingest the spider i think their stomach would neutralize the venom, if not the crickets that ate it would die. Unless you found bits of the spider it's more likely that it just escaped anyway. But all this is just my opinion take it with a grain of salt.

There is literally 0 signs of the spider :skullemoji:. And it was in a tightly closed tub, so highly impossible for it to escape from cricket's madness lol.

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.
HELP what's happening with my beardie!!he has a lifted up scale and it has shedding in a circle around it I noticed it for the first time yesterday and I have no idea what it is and when I shine a flashlight on him it's yellow around the scale what do I doooo
substrate looks scrumptious
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?
