Why didn't you find all of this out before you got it?

Have a read of this http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/lizard-care/92926-bearded-dragons.html - hopefully it explains most things.


Temps:

Daytime -

Basking Spot: 110-120f
Cool End: BELOW 88f (around 85f is ideal). During the summer you will almost certainly need a thermostat.

Night -

Can drop down to 65f. All lights must be turned off.

They need UV lighting during the day.



As it's still growing, feed it as many crickets as it wants to eat, twice each day. It needs a variety of fresh veg each day. Fruit isn't particularly good for them, as it's too high in sugars and various other things.

I don't recommend spraying them in the vivarium unless the vivarium is open-topped, otherwise humidity can get too high. As long as they have fresh vegetables in there (read the thread at the top of the lizards section) they will get moisture from that. I also give baths every couple of weeks to let them have a drink if they feel the need to.
