ive noticed a lot of you have plants in your viv's i was thinking of adding some just for color i was wondering if you reccomend live plants or fake i figure real would be nicer espeically if he was able to eat the leaves and such but would be hard to take care of and at the same time fake ones might be dangerous if he thinks they are real and eats silk or plastic flowers?

Hi Spike, I've got silk plants in my vivs. The plastic ones are a bit hard, silk are much nicer. I think they would have to pull quite hard at the leaves if they tried to eat them as they're fairly well fixed to the stalks, but I think most beardies, once they realised it wasn't real, would give up and try the salad bowl instead! I'm sure there will be others who say this isn't the case, but my beardies eats loads of salad and have never once tried to eat their plants!

Have you tried hand feeding him little pieces? I'm sure you have, but thought I'd ask! One of my dragons won't take it from me, he just like snuffling around in his bowl - the other one won't touch it out of the bowl but will eat loads from my hand! Have you tried fresh herbs? I find they go down the best - parsley, mint, basil etc? Plus if you get the living plants you can keep them for ages on your kitchen window sill and they don't go off Apparently they like strong flavours, Pak Choi is another good strong one (not sure it's called the same over there as here in UK).

Hey! I haven't looked at all of them yet going back as soon as I get done with this, I just have to know, Chris how did you do that?!? The logs on the glass is amazing! I want to do that lol could you please let me know how you managed that?
All the other pics I've seen so far look great! I can't wait untill I have the room, money, and time to do something really great like these. Right now I just have a vision cage with a few logs, rocks, and tile-pretty boring, but my boy likes it good enough for now(I feel like one of the loser moms too lol)

Peter Griffin,

Very nice enclosure, just make sure those last two pieces of the free standing rock are very secure, i'm sure they are very heavy, but accidents can happen! Nice cage though!

I actually found that out after I took the Picture, (Before I put my BD in it.) The paver stone are all flat stacked now, so no chance of falling over or pinching. I love the use of the paver stones. I can change up the inside easily if wanted.

are you using a mercury vapor bulb? is that the one that's tilted? i've read that tilting your MVB can severely impact the UVB output. Can anyone else varify this?

so long as the mvb is a megaray you don't need to worry about putting it at an angle ...i asked Bob about this and he said it only increases the surface area covered by the uvb and may decrease temps a bit...i know with the other bulbs they only recommend it facing virtically downwards......still building my viv :( but will post pic as soon as it's done :)

My wife custom made the tapestry. She is a huge Pern fan as well as a lover of dragons over all :D

Best surprise is that the moonlight bulb i have in there makes the plants look blood red. Wish i could capture on film but the lighting proved difficult. :shock:

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
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.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
