Red face Bearded Dragons-Smell?

I've heard some people say bearded dragons are very smelly! Is this true, just out of interest? Or do some think they smell bad and other people dont?

My lizard doesn't ever seem to smell apart from when he has just had a poo. as long as you dont leave it there for long and clean it up when you notice it, it should be fine. If the viv does seem to smell after a while just replace sand or whatever you use and give everything a good clean..

If the lizard does get covered in his own poo just give him a bath. I can only ever smell my lizard when he is directly below my nose. I personally think crickets have a horrible smell though!!!!

Our beardie doesn't smell. His poo does a bit, but that's easy to clean up.

Yes I think that is key. Loose substrates absorb smells and even if you spot clean some of the "moisture" will be left in the sand and this will smell.

Ours are on Chipsi bark which is spot cleaned throughout the day changed once a week with a viv deep clean every 2 weeks, the beardies get a weekly bath all this keeps any smell away i know people say they dont have time but we have over 50 reptiles and more on the way and we manage.
