The information we give to you is not to be used like it is the only option or way. These are just our preference based on our own personal experiences and knowledge gained from our history caring for our bearded dragons, our way isn't for everyone so do what works out best for you as long as your pet is healthy and thriving and respectfully cared for and haves everything it needs. Please do a lot of independent research, consult with veterinarians that are specialized in reptiles before following any advice by other article's or information on the internet. It doesn't matter how much experience any "herpetoculturist" or breeder think they might have, there is still always a lot more to be learned and the complete understanding and care for these animals. Information and data on these animals changes from periods of time, so be mindful and keep up to date on caring for your bearded dragon.



When you bring a new reptile into your home/collection, it is very important to give it one week or two to settle in depending your reptiles behavior/actions how they feel towards you. Some will quickly adjust to there new environment and some can take a bit longer to adjust. As difficult as it may or can be, try not to handle or disturb your new reptile during these couple of weeks to keep stress levels down unless you need to clean feces or give food and provide water. If you have other reptiles, it's important to keep your new reptile addition in a separate room if possible to quarantine them from your other reptiles. The quarantine period should be a two to three months, and this will give you the opportunity to make sure that the reptile is healthy as well as keeping your other reptiles safe. Regardless of where you get your reptile from, it's always better to be safe than sorry, you can risk your other reptiles well being/health and loose everything you work so hard for, on top of the grief for your animals.



10 to 15 Years - is generally the max lifespan of bearded dragons kept in captivity that are being well taken care of.

when considering whether a bearded dragon is the right pet for you. Owning a bearded dragon is a long term commitment.



Baby bearded dragons require a lot of protein in order to grow strong and healthy, to grow properly. We feed frequently meals to our hatchlings and juvenile bearded dragons. Hatchlings/babies should be fed three to four times a day, about twenty to thirty appropriate size insects per feeding sessions. Put about five insects in at a time, and remove any extra insects after feeding your dragon when there completely done eating, loose insect feeders in there enclosure can really stress your bearded dragon out causing them to glass surf and running stressfully all around there enclosure because of the insects running on them and potentially biting on them while there trying to relax or rest, crickets can also spread pathogens by there feces and elevate your bearded dragon stress level, so do your dragon a big favor take out any extra insects out so he or she can relax in a stress free environment.

We like to give to our dragons collard greens and among other good staple greens mixed with a little of endive dusted with calcium without D3  three times a week once a day, only apply dusted calcium one time out of the day. Bearded dragons can create natural D3 on their own with the correct proper high output ultraviolet florescent lighting that we provide for them, and we use calcium with D3 about 2 times a week to give them a little extra push if they aren't creating enough D3 for themselves. We use multivitamins also into the mixed to our feeding schedule to change things up. Your baby bearded dragon may not eat a lot of the greens in the beginning so they will nibble on them out of curiosity but this is perfectly normal so don't stress out over it. Just continue to offer greens daily, they will grow accustomed to greens eventually, it’s really important for hydration and for the natural vitamins the greens may carry that you are providing for your baby bearded dragon, also make sure to change your greens daily and always provide new fresh greens everyday.

Always provide your bearded dragon with a variety of live insects dusted with calcium, such as dubias, grasshoppers/locust, crickets, black soldier larvae and silk worms all are really good feeders. Good insect treats you can offer one to two times a week for your juvenile's, super worms/morio worms, mealworms, wax worms, butter worms and horn worms. We don't feed our baby bearded dragons meal worms or super worms/morio worms until the ages of five months and older that is just our preference. When feeding mealworms and super worms, only offer very little at a time like two or three per time because to much at one time your dragon will eat it so fast and eventually throw it all up, to avoid this problem offer less quantities to prevent regurgitation. The size appropriate insects for 6 to 8 weeks old dragons are small dubias, small/medium soldier fly larvae, small crickets, small grasshoppers and etc. please avoid only feeding one kind of insect feeders. Each insect feeders has its benefits and value. Your beaded dragon will be a lot stronger with different variety to choose from.

House your bearded dragon separately. Bearded dragons are not social animals, they don’t need companions. They compete for there food and will fight, this can lead to a very serious injury and it also can cause them to be highly stressed out. Bearded dragons will stop eating and potentially get sick from high stress. Bigger bearded dragons are known to eat smaller dragons, Bearded dragons are extremely prey driven animals and anything smaller than them is a potential prey. Please make sure your bearded dragon are getting everything they need to grow and live a happy long life, one bearded dragon per enclosure is recommended, but of course to your own account it's your own decision to make.

120x60x60 cm reptile enclosure

This is our personal preference size that we use for our adult bearded dragons, the more BIGGER the more BETTER! your bearded dragon will be much happier to have more space to roam in he or she's enclosure to stay strong and fit.



Establishing a Relationship❤️


A good way to start a bond with your young beardie is to start with a ten to fifteen minute session once or twice a day daily depending on the bearded dragons behavior and body language. once a baby bearded dragon gets use to being handled, after that some bearded dragons takes the pleasure being held by you many times a day. Just pay a close attention to their body language/actions. When a bearded dragon licks you, they are getting your scent. They may be acquiring your scent because they feel comfortable with you. They also use their tongues to get a feel for their environment. 



Get a large plastic bin that is at least twice as long as your bearded dragon, soak your bearded dragon one to two times a week in lukewarm temperature water up to there lower chest or elbows to provide opportunities for them to drink water and stay hydrated. To help clean your bearded dragon you can do scrub massages on there whole body with a tooth bush to help take off dirt, feces, and stuck shed that doesn't want to get off easily. 

Tip: Do not use soap to clean any reptiles, this is very dangerous to them or any wash fragrance that is for humans and fury animals.
