Be prepared to change the water! :lol2:

If your putting them straight into the bath try get something in the bottom they can grip. I normally put in a big stone for them to sit on and fill water around that so they can dive straight in!

okies, firstly,

You want the water level up to there chest. no higher!

The water should be warmish, like you would if you were bathing a baby. Do not add anything to the water (believe me when i say, i had someone ask me once if they could use bubble bath!)

Stay with them at all times, do not leave them unattended. Beardies have a habit of relaxing & fall asleep during a bath and can drown.

Bath them for say 5 mins then take them out and dry them off ith a towel and place them in there basking spot.
