      OK, so i have a 2 and a half month old baby beardy, i am currently feeding him his veggies and the pinhead crickets, but the crickets are adult size. He seems to be dong fine, his poo is okay and he is acting normal. This is my first time raising one so i was wondering if you could give me some advice. Please and thank you. If you could email me at blakeposs04@gmail.com. I am open to any advice.

        Pinhead are tiny crickets so what you are saying is that you feed him adult crickets? You just need to make sure that whatever you are feeding him is no wider than the space between his eyes.

      Hey so I just got my dragon a 10.00 uvb 24 inch, had the coil bulbs before and he was closing one eye and didn’t look good read into it and heard they have a lot of problems. Was wondering if you would be able to help me with the proper mounting height

        Sorry, I just saw this. You want to mount the UVB as high up over head in the tank as you can. You don't want the light to shine in their eyes. They have a ridge over the eye that protects them from the light shining from overhead.

      Isn't pregnancy also what makes beardies "glass dance"?

        I didn't even realize people were posting on my wall, I do apologize for the late response. I don't really know why they glass dance. My boy did it for 3 years. His tank was clean and he had stuff to do in it, I took him out for free time every time I was home but he still ran the tank as soon as he was in it. He eventually stopped about a year ago but I couldn't really figure out what his problem was.

      Hello. I’m excited to be a part of the group. We have 2 beautiful beardies. A boy and a girl

      I believe we were finally able to determine their sex. Until now we had their sex mixed up. We named Lizza because we thought he was a girl and Lightening because we thought she was a boy.

      I think we need to switch their names. Do beardies recognize their names? Will changing their names confuse them?

        Welcome! I would say that they recognize the sound in you saying their name, it's not necessarily the name itself. My oldest girl is named Dexter because we were hoping for a boy and my boy is named Luci. We kept the names just because they just fit them. They don't care that it's a boy or girl name.

      We just purchased a bearded dragon & it's about 4 months old. We currently have it in a 40 gallon tank. Is this okay? What is the proper lighting for it?

        40 gallon is perfect he should have a heat lamp and a uv, ultra violet lamp right OVER his rock, the other side should be cooler. sounds like your doing things right make sure you have a temp gage it should be between 90 an 110 on the hot side and around 80 on the cooler side were you would have their water and food and a hamick.

        I have a heated throw blanket that I got from Target for about 30 bucks. It's always on my couch for my old cat to sit on but Dexter likes to lay on it too when she's out of her tank. I just make sure it's on low and I keep checking her to make sure she's not getting real hot.

      Will you please help I don't know what to do MJ keeps glass surfing I would let her out but she's been out most of the day (also why I put a mirror in her tank)

        My Dr. explained glass surfing is them getting your attention or they see a reflection. My Dr. also said it's extremely important THEIR only out a couple hours a day because their lighting is extremely important for their growth and health.
