What should I do? How do u properly place it
Ok so the screen is a wide hole please get a piece of basking decor directly under it 8-10 inches she needs to be able to sit directly under the UVB - optimal humidity is 40-50% nothing under 20 and over 70% - please get a digital probe hygrometer place on the back center wall of your tank - -- mealworms are not good for babies -- older dragons when their digestion system has fully developed - the exo skeleton is too harsh on babies stomach - you can feed super worms 1-3 every other day as treats horn worms are good for hydration and grow very fast -- wax worms sparingly they are very fatty and too many can cause liver issues -- please NO sand for babies --- they lick everything and if they are lacking something in the diet they will eat it causing impaction -- what are you feeding?

lol most people dont, the first one i got from petco died 31 days after, one monday actually halloween, but they gave me a $108 refund to get a new one but i did not get it from there, i went to a reptilium store 33 min away and got one there which seems to be wayyy healthier but yours may be perfectly fine, it wasnt to concern you at all, mealworms are okay as a treat there exoskeleton is just hard for babies and might lead in ingestion problems, dubia roaches are the way to go fs, but just make more the food is no bigger than the space between there eyes, i prefer TerraSahara sand, its bioactive substrate and its really good, they do do better on loose substrate tho, you got this!!
Thank you! yes I only feed her Dubias sometimes crickets. And i give her meal worms and super worms as treats

I had something there for the longest time I tried placing her on it she just ran off she won’t stay there. I have a camera on her so I always checked to see and she only likes her basking Rock. I feed her about 20 dubia roaches a day. Maybe once a week I give her a small mealworm. I give her 2 super worms every other day. She doesn’t like wax worms so I don’t even bother with those. I offer her a salad everyday i can’t get her to eat any of it lol maybe one piece. I’ve tried a number of different fruits and veggies but she won’t touch any of them.

Are you feeding salads? They need fresh salads every day Nutrition Content
ignore the kale info it is outdated--- dubias are a great staple feeder -- you may need to get some BSFL to entice him to the bowl to eat the salads they make great salad lures and are great for babies - they are a nice compliment to the staple feeder --- feed them first thing in the morning dropping on the salads in front of him to get his attention and you can use them to hand tame him --- do not dust them - are you dusting the roaches? Calcium D3 5 x per week ONCE per feeding if your feeding more than once a day -- lightly coated -- vitamins w/ beta carotene 2 x per week ONCE per feeding lightly coated -- feed as many BSFL as you want --
www.dubiaroaches.com they have nice roaches nice horn worms order small amounts and BSFL are known as nutri grubs here

I have posted ways to get her to the salad bowl you will need something like this to keep the BSFL / nutrigrubs in it

Ok thank you! but what about the uvb? How do I get her under it
Where does she sit when basking? On the rock platform? I would move the plant thats under the UVB and put a piece of basking decor there -- also dragons like floor space I would take out some of the things you have on the floor in there -- give her some floor space and maybe get some more things for her to sit on - basking decor pieces --- think big - Pet Smart has great decor for dragons - also I would get her a fleece blanket or piece of clothing to put in the hide on the floor - something w/ your smell on it so she gets used to you as well -- she knows what she needs for UVB so just watch her --

possible brumation
oh yeah also hes massive now and he broke his hammock
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?
