Leave The Glass Doors Open And Keep The Heat Lamp On Full [not That Ive Been Able To Grasp Your Set Up Or What Equipment Or Temps Your Keeping Despite Numerous Comunications For Some Reason Lol]
Take Out The Dandelion Leaves And The Water Bowl And Get The Humidity Back Down Before Trying Again.

Were The Leaves Wet?
Did U Put Them In The Hot End?

even with my limited knowledge i can tell you that you should probably take your beardy off that calci-sand. it isn't fully digestable and is known to cause compaction especially if your beady is young.

Yes - remove the sand immediately. Clean viv out completely and make sure it's really dry, put in some newspaper and leave doors open a bit. When it's bigger it can go on a different substrate (just not calci-sand). I keep my rankins dragons on a mix of tile (warm end) and some soil/playsand mix the cool end.

stop putting a water bowl in the viv

ive been keeping beardies for a while now and have NEVER put a water bowl in my humidity levels stay real low just how it should be.


if you are really wanting to get rid of the calci sand put in some play sand i have never had any problems using play sand
