Hi luvdragon ,

Re: Am i doing this right? HELP!

Hi , Its strange that no one replied to your post. Anyway , here's my 2 cents.. 1. Your cage is abit too big (in my opinion) especially for a baby. Is you dragon able to find the food ? 2.

Re: Bearded Dragon Brumation

Hi fredsmith , Seems to be a mis-understanding , by "no uv" , I mean't that it is switched off. I dont see the point of having it on because while inside his hide , there is no light , except for the entrance , abit of his tail and the crevice where he is visible in the pic above. The hide...

Re: Bearded Dragon Brumation

Hi , I have changed the basking lamp to a 40W (Previously a 60W). The basking spot temp has dropped to 28-30 Deg C and cool side to 20-22 Deg C , this has made no significant change to behavior. The vet passed Spike as healthy and in good condition. He also suggested that because he was born early i...
