I just move a few from the cricket breeding tub to the Beardies Vivariums, They run around chasing them, And an advantage is, its quicker to feed this way and the beardies get to explore through the different terrain in the enclosure.

For everyone that says to take your beardie out,and to not feed on sand,

What do the animals do in the wild!!!

Out in the desert they feed on sand and dont suffer impaction.

One thing i would say, i keep my beardies on sand (Touch wood they are fine!)

My friend kept one on the 'bird grit' stuff they now try to sell you, the dragon went wild eating the bird grit and a week later it died.

So i have kept mine on sand for 2 years fed in the viv and both ok!

lol, how do you know a dragon doesn't suffer from impaction in the wild? there probably are many cases of this in the wild, but because it's in the wild, probably not alot recorded. but still.
as the dragon will be young, it will be better feeding outside the vivarium, it's quicker saves getting the crickets out at night, easier and safer.
i use like a big toy box, with newspaper at the bottom so my dragon can grip better to hunt, it's big enough that he can chase the crickets inside it, the crickets can't escape because they can't climb up plastic.
when he's older you can feed him inside the vivarium, but because it's young they're terrible hunters so would probably get a mouthful of sand xD

Hi mate, I used a gardening tub, the sort you put leaves in.



This is a better pic of the tub, I was mixing up some substrate in it in case you were wondeing what was in it.



The main reasons for feeding in a tub are; You will be feeding him/her something like 15~20 crix a day, if you put them in the viv, some will escape, others will be in there so long all the vitamin dust will have come off, they will hassel your beardie at night, you wont know how many have been eaten.

Put him in a tub with 20 crix and they will be gone in 2 minutes, no mess, no escapees, any left can be easly put back.

Job done

Jay
