BDO's FAQ About Bearded Dragons


Back to General Care



Before we go any further I would like to show you something that you may not know. It is the "find on this page" command.
Depending on what device you are using it is activated in different ways and will appear in different areas of your screen, usually a corner.

On a PC you would press the Ctrl key and F key at the same time.
On a MAC you would press the Command key and F key at the same time.
On a smartphone, Samsung and LG shown, it is the menu button (see image 1) then scroll for find on this page.
On an iphone/ipad follow the instructions (see image 2).

You may be asking yourself why you would need this. The answer is simple, instead of scrolling through a long document or webpage (such as this webpage) you can easily type in one word and be brought to it.




Q:

What is the ideal bath temperature for a bearded dragon?

A:

The water temperature should be 100 degrees Fahrenheit / 38 degrees Celsius if you want your dragon to poop in the bath. But it can be anywhere between 85-100 degrees Fahrenheit / 30-38 degrees Celsius.


Q:

Is it bad that my bearded dragons won't eat every day?

A:

Not every dragon is going to eat every day. If you feed your dragon 50 super worms/dubia the day before he might not be hungry the following day. Adult dragons only need 50 bugs on average a week with fresh greens daily. Don't freak out if your dragons appetite has slowed or stopped for a day or two. Monitor your dragon's weight if you aren't sleeping at night because of it to make sure he's gaining weight. Check your cage temps and UVB lighting make sure it's proper/correct. Get a fecal test done.


Q:

My dragon was brumating and just woke up, what is the best way to introduce him to his new home that was built?

A:

You can go ahead and move him to his new home & put a few of his old things in it.


Q:

How to feed my dragon that just came out of brumation? Go back to normal or slowly add?

A:

I would go back to normal feeding, although he may not eat as much for a while.

Q:

How many superworms do babies typically eat? My girl only eats about 5 at a time, so I figure they must be filling?

A:

Rule of thumb for a baby is 3 feedings per day as much live food they can eat in 15 minutes and always keep veggies in their enclosure.
