Hello Everyone! We just got our very first Bearded Dragon - his name is Rex. Just wanted to show him off to you guys. He's 3 months old and a great eater! He is het hypo and het trans, but is also quite the stdunner haha. He is dunner and his father is Tangerine and his mother Orange (pretty sure those are basically the same..) Anyway he's a cutie and we wanted to show him off. He's my 10 year old sons but everyone in the family gets a little Rex time. The breeder we got him from works at a vet clinic, and her parents are both veterinarians, so he had a check up right before we brought him home - which was very assuring for new owners. I've been researching for a few months already on their care and I think we've got him a pretty good set up (tube light mounted inside the tank, no loose substrate, 110 basking spot temp, 90degree warm side, 78 degree cool side, eating kale and romaine with a little bee pollen, but next grocery pick up I'm going to get some mustards to add into the mix. Dubias and crickets for protein, little calcium sprinkled on with a salt shaker.) We have a dog, cat, rabbit, and a handful of chickens so whatever Rex doesn't eat - the rabbit gets as far as greens go, and the extra bugs go to the chickens. Everybody's getting treats around here 😂) Thanks for checkin in and I attached a couple of pictures my son took the other day of him.

Awwww hi lil guy! Mustards are a great green - Collards too! The fact you have got a 3 month old eating greens is something I never experienced 😂 … my girl didn’t touch a green or a veggie or a fruit until she was over a year old! At 3 months she was only down with the feeders and I mean ONLY for a long long time to come. So you’ve def got a leg up in the Greens Saga some of us go through, that’s great.

Raising a baby can be so rewarding - lots of work but lots of memories to be made, and looking back on baby photos when they get older is the coolest thing ever. Welcome to you and Rex 😊

Thank you! Yes, the first week he wouldn’t even look at his greens. He doesn’t eat a bunch of them, but he’s probably hitting his 20% intake. It was shock and awe from everybody when he waddled on down off his log and gobbled some up!

Hi Rex!!! Welcome! This is so exciting. I wish you a wonderful journey and we are all here to support you.
Remember Rex also has to get used to his new home so he's doing great. It sounds like he's surrounded by lots of people, animals but most of all- LOVE!

Yes, we’ve been giving him alone time in his tank, but still trying to do some handling. We watch his stress marks, and he hasn’t shown any in about 3 days so we’re thinking he’s getting used to all the new! Thank you for the welcome!

Awww welcome Rex! He's absolutely adorable! My baby dragon is 3 months old as well, and he's curious about everything lol. It's awesome that he's from a good breeder. Wish little Rex all the best!

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
This is a message for all Bearded Dragon owners: do NOT feed your Dragon pellets! Feeding your Dragon pellets can cause SICKNESS and GREAT HARM! So please, do NOT feed your Dragon pellets!
