Hi Danny, Welcome to the best forum! I own 6 Beardies and i also breed Beardies too! There fantastic to keep and i think they make an excellent first lizard.

You say your collecting your Beardie on friday, do you have the setup ready? and working? As your need to make sure your temps are spot on and also that all your equipment is working fine.

How much do you know about Beardies? what do you want to know?

Hi Danny, welcome to the forum. You will love your beardie - I've only had mine for a couple of months and they are soooo much fun. As long as youv'e got the basics right, like the viv, temps and food - you'll learn as you go along. I am!!!!

Thanks Guys,

Im buying it from a woman that breeds from home and also supplies petshops - funny thing is its just her hobby too.

She is having the tank built for me, so im not too sure on the light fittings etc, im picking it tomorrow and getting it set up. She is also including substrate, water bowl, door lock, calcium powder, first batch of crickets and thermometers.

So far iv bought a small feeding bowl and some branches (not too sure on them though)

Iv bought some artificial plants - does anyone else use these in there set up or is this a bad idea? im scared he might try have a nibble:sick:

Iv read endless amounts of care sheets - one thing iv not come across is white cabbage? can berdies have this?
