has anybody been able to get their beardie to poop on something in the corner that can be easily removed from the tank? i can tell milo doesnt like the smell cause any chance he gets he will poop outside of his tank, so if theres a way i can potty train him so that it bothers both of us less that would be super cool :D would love to hear any experiences

Some beardies will just about always go to the same spot naturally, my girl Snicker Doodles poops within and inch or so of the same spot every time, my male Zen poops wherever he happens to be, and Ruby poops and sets in it 🤬🤬😡 most of the time. I have read about beardies that where supposedly potty trained but i suspect it was just a fluke.

i mean leopard geckos will poop in a certain section without training, but I’m not sure about beardies. I just find poop everywhere in their cages, the water bowl, food dish, even on the hammock!

Draco only poops at the bottom right corner and I might've unintentionally trained him... The way I set up his tank, there was only that corner where he had enough space to fuss before pooping and a nice decor to support his upper body. I think you can try to figure out when he usually goes during the day, then put him in that corner before that.

Rocky poops in the front left corner since I could remember. I have changed things in his tank and he still goes there. Sadly his water bowl is near there. He doesnt go in it (any more) but it's still too close for my liking. When I moved his water bowl, it caused concern for him LOL
Rocky is known to leave the bathroom and poop in the bathroom near the toilet - go figure or if he is out of the tank, resume to the tank and poop. None of this is by any training provided by me.

My BD I got her when she was 5.5, she used to come out and poo etc etc but then after her operations she found going into the cooler part of her Viv where there is a cave and she like sits on it and it helps her poo from time to time so now 99% of the time she goes in that corner, even sometimes she goes into corner then scratches to come out and when she knows she defo needs to poo she goes running back, climbs in and goes to the corner.

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.

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?
