Do I own a dog or a small bear?

You should get rid of the sand as it can cause eye and respiratory infections along with impaction which are deadly if not treated.Try tile, newspaper, reptile carpet or non adhesive shelf liner.

In addition, don’t house multiple Dragons together. One will steal the others food, there can be fights, and if it’s male and female the male will try and mate the female to death. Even if they get along today they can turn around and strike at each other tomorrow with no warning which can result in serious injury or death.

Also, get rid of the heat use a basking bulb (for daytime use) instead. Beardies, along with most other lizards, cannot sense heat coming from below very well. This combined with the fact that hot rocks can overheat and malfunction easily can cause horrible burns on your beardie. Also heat rocks don’t heat up the air, so beardies have to glue themselves onto them just to stay warm.

I’m a breeder. I have been raising dragons for years. I have had those dragons in the picture, which are my house dragons. In the same tank since they were born. Three years ago. One is male. And they have always got along perfectly fine. Also, being as I work with the best exotic vett in my state, he actually recommends we keep sand on they’re, which is what they are actually used to in places where they are native.
And before you all make a bunch of assumptions that heat rock is not plugged in. It’s cord has been chopped, those cables are from our lamps… Also, why do people give advice when not asked for it. Please delete the post you did about me, and never comment on my posts again, if you do your page will be reported for harassment. Learn some facts, before you push your views on others.
If that was the case your beardies wouldn’t be glued on it.
These aren’t views, I’m not preaching Christianity, I’m telling you true hard facts. Get your pride out of the way and take proper care of your pets, or give then to someone who can.
It’s kinda funny that my young juvenile bearded dragons are bigger and fatter than these adults owned by a “breeder”. And just because you can stick two opposite gendered animals together and they do what nature intended doesn’t mean that your bad husbandry is ok.
My sister has a bearded dragon and they typically eat crickets, but they’ll eat mice occasionally as well. She bought this mouse a week ago and the first day, the bearded dragon put the mouse in his mouth and the mouse squeaked so he spit it out… and he’s never tried to eat it again! Now they’re friends and the mouse sleeps on his back and head and even moved some wood chips over to where the bearded dragon sleeps so he would have a bed too! It’s so cute.
omg ugh i love this
i feel that this is important
Is no one going to note that you should NEVER feed a live rodent that size to a bearded dragon? At the MOST you may occasionally give a pinkie (very very small baby) mouse but it is not recommended as it isn’t healthy for your dragon. Mice cause fatty liver, liver failure, and obesity in bearded dragons, not to mention the possibility for impaction. Only a fully grown breeding female laying eggs should be fed pinkie mice but even that isn’t recommended and there are better alternatives available to fatten them up.
TL;DR: This is not a good thing to do for the bearded dragon or the mouse. It’s not cute, it’s poor husbandry.
