why does my bearded dragon get webs in his tank

Do they look like Spider webs Kelly and what time of day do they appear? What kinds of insects do you feed your Beardy? Have you fed anything in the past that could spin webbing and could some still be hiding in the viv?

What does your enclosure look like? is it front opening or does it have a mesh top that spiders could get into?

A house spider may be in one of the corners of the enclosure or along a ridge etc. It's not necessarily harmful though. Do you live in an area that has venomous spiders that would cause concern? A small house spider is probably feeding on fruit flies or gnats or similar and isn't likely to pose a problem. If you want to get rid of them you could try running the hose attachment from a vacuum around the corners of the enclosure and see if the webs re-appear.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
