    Hi there, I am hoping to get my first beardie soon and i need to just clear feeding up with more experienced reptile owners. I am hoping to get a young adult beardie, so, how many crickets and meal worms should i feed him daily? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thankyou :)

    Hi, i am purchasing a Beardie soon at around 6-8 months old & just wandered how often he will need to be fed live food. I know that baby beardies need feeding 2-3 times a day but not sure how long this feeding pattern continues. Thanks in advance

I'v just gone to feed him but first lifted the rock up to see if there was any hiding and about 15 ran out! I was going to make a base for his rock which will be about 1cm...

    I rescued a couple of beardies about 10 days ago.I took them to a vet after rehydration,claw clip etc for a general health check. They were not seen by a reptile specialist as he is on holiday so was just a vet equivalent of a gp. Overall health was good but I was concerned about advice given...

    My bearded dragon is a rescue. Long story short, the vets told me I need to get some CCF and food down him to fatten him up because he's so very underweight (amongst other things). So I've been hand feeding him because he's been showing no inclination to eat of his own accord. Even the locusts...

    Me and my girlfriend are getting insecure about feeding our dragon. After reading alot of stuff on the forums and reading different opinions, I'm not sure how much we should feed our dragon. I think he's about 1 years old. We never got to know the correct age as the pet store did not know the...

    Can anyone give me tips on how to successfully feed crickets to my baby beardie. He can't seem to catch them, don't know if it's cos they are too fast or if he is too slow- he is struggling running on the newspaper in the viv as he was on sand at pet shop. I've had him a week and so I know he...
