    So I've been wondering... Since Repashy mixes for bearded dragons have insects in it, is it possible to replace a bearded dragon's entire diet with just Repashy? No more live bugs or fresh vegetables. Similar to a crested geckos' diet. Keep in mind: I have not tried it, I'd like to hear your...

    Hi! I've had my baby beardie for a little over two months now. When I first had him, he was very bitey and would open his mouth and hiss at me and lunge at me when I put my hands in the tank. He was also aggressive and jumpy out of the tank. After putting in a lot of hard work with him, he's so...

Now i have separated them one of them has begun hiding all of...

    So, I bought a baby Beardie literally 4 days ago, it's been roaming the cage and sort of settling it but it's only eaten the locusts on one day and isn't eating any veg or drinking water. I know it has to settle in but I'm a bit worried? Also, I've been handling it everyday just letting it...

    Hi, A few months ago we took in a bearded dragon (Fred) from a friend who couldn't look after him any more. He is a 5 year old "blood red", he came with a viv that is about 1 x 0.5 x 0.5 m, I'm worried it is too small. He eats not even 2 locusts a week and maybe 6 waxworms, plus a few ml of...

    So, over the course of the last couple of weeks i've noticed my Beardie's claws have started to curl and he's gradually gotten more lethargic as a result. I keep his nails to what i've been told is an appropriate length by trimming regularly and yet still it's getting worse. Any thoughts?

    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

    Evening, I've had a couple of posts already for advice on my new baby dragons, the responses have been really helpful & they are now both hunting & eating which is great, temps are now all spot on and they are generally happier. There is one last thing that I'm still a bit unsure of . . The...
