Smile Anyone else out there LOVE Bearded Dragons?

I have a 2yr old male named Draco who is a lemon yellow with no markings. A rescue reg color named Nessy who came to me with a broken jaw and very underweight and had mouth rot. She is doing better but is still having a hard time eating so she goes to the vet for weekly pain injections. I also have 10 new hatchlings. I'm keeping one and have homes for the others with friends and family.

They are way cool! Very mellow thought the rescue I have will bite but I don't know her history just that she came to me in very poor condition. Here are a few pics of my two adults and my babies..



Thats daddy Draco

Daddy in his tank

Nessy when I first rescued her.

Nessy now

They are very friendly but are pricy to care for, lg tank, lightning, suplements, live food calci sand over her id 20.00 a bag and it takes 4 bags to fill daddys tank. You wouldn't switch a baby to sand till they are about 12 inches.

Wow that's big!

A kid just stood in front of my door, a tiny 2 inch lizard in one hand and a wiggling tail in the other, if I could fix it, hehehe. Too cute the kid.

Anyways, I got the lizard in a glass bowl right now, and no clue what to do with it. They grow back their tails, right? What do they eat?

He looks like the ones in the first picture, but I'll take some pics myself in a bit.

The lizards in your area MsD should grow their tails back yes. They eat a variety of things ... or are you asking about the thread subject?

Anyway you are best off letting that lizard go unless there is something else wrong besides the tail.

Oh boy poor little guy. Most lizards will drop their tail to avoid predators. The tais distracts so the animal can get away.He should be fine back outside. Just make shure the area isn't swollen or have drainage. You could feed him some of these guys...



lol I breed hissers, meal and mondo worms and crickets for my pets. I want to know their prey is healthy before they eat it. I have had so many probs with the pet store prey items.

Niiiiice! I used to raise mealworms, but no more.

I released the lil bugger this morning. His tail wound looked bad last night, all red and bloody, but it was closed this morning, so off he went!

I was told by my neighbors that it was a baby gecko. I didn't take pictures of it though.

I love bearded dragons as well! I'd love to have one, but I don't have the room for one right now. I love those pictures, they are adorable!

Thanks Snyperkat!

Sadly Draco passed on Christmas eve. Due to liver failure caused by some antibiotics I got from the vet to get rid of a mouth infection. He got an infection from some contaminated crickets and we just couldn't seem to get rid of it. I don't remember the name but it's in dirt and gets on crickets and transmits to the reptile. He warned me that it was very hard to get rid of but I never thought this would happen. I miss him sooooo much. I have decided to keep one of his babies whom I have named RA.

Aaaw, I'm so sorry! Was that from the crickets you bred yourself? And what does RA stand for?
