A big "Holá" from another continent ;)

Since August I'm the proud human of my bearded dragon Taco.
We're here in Chile (I'm originally from Germany, lived in the US for some years).
Before getting Taco, I was reading a lot here and found it very helpful :)

Taco comes from a local breeder (I looked into adopting but there were no reptiles available). He lives in a 48" x 32" x 28" full glass enclosure which I had custom-made by a glass company and for which I made a screen-top lid; the enclosures recommended here in the forum are impossible to get in Chile.
Taco's weight is currently 350 g; for the length, I would have to check.

According to what I can say, Taco lives a great, healthy life, also thanks to what I've read online before getting him regarding light, food/feeders, calcium... and all the stuff without making any "buying mistakes" like a too small enclosure or coil lamps.
There are no problems, Taco is doing great. I just registered as I might be able to help out from time to time, e.g. with ideas about enclosures and the setup, and I just find this forum being a very helpful resource.

I will post photos later.

Danke für die nette Begrüßung ;)
Thank you for the nice welcome :)


Thank you :)

No questions right now, everything is just perfectly fine plus I've read a lot.

Now I uploaded some photos.

Here is just a comparison on how he looked when I got him end of August last year vs. now. That's the same enclosure, same branch etc.!
I'm also by some extent surprised how well he's now matching the color and structure of the climbing background. I know that beardies can change their color, but I was extremely surprised how much he looks like the ochre and mauve of the background now. Really, if I take off my glasses, he would count as "invisible" to me sitting up there.

I now post a bit more on the setup under "Enclosures".

My 2 year old male dragon has been shedding for 2-3 weeks. I’m worried about it being a stuck shed. I’ve seen on other websites they should not soak and then I’ve seen that they should be soaked. So my question is when should I soak him?
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
