Bearded Dragon Home

Although the boy does not have much room to move, you want to know when creating a home for your bearded dragon, you should consider the pace of expansion and final size of an adult one.

The adult male can grow to an average of two meters in length including the tail, so you can imagine, a small 10 to 20 gallon tank last only a short time when you think of the bearded dragon will grow to about an inch a week in length. A twenty gallon tank is good for the baby, and it comes down to a size that is about thirty inches long, twelve inches wide and twelve inches high. For an adult bearded dragon, you should at least double the capacity of a tank forty liters, or about 36 cm long, with eighteen inches wide and 12 to 16 cm high.

The time between hatchling and adult size is about 3-4 months in ideal conditions. When creating a home for your bearded dragon is a good idea to go as big as possible the size of the housing, so it offers plenty of space to move, hide, sleep and play. Lizard, the bulk of the day basking shark (like most Australians) so it is important to ensure that at least one or two spots in the housing cherishes.

They do it because the heat they absorb from the sun helps the digestion of their food. To obtain optimum use of the source of heat, the stones are better for this purpose than the notes, like the stones to hold much more heat. Note should also be available for stimulation and training versus position for sunbathing.

It is very important to remember when creating a home for your bearded dragon that an item introduced into the body of the outside world must first be cleaned and cooked. It kills any contaminants and protects the lizard from unexpected illness or condition. It is better to stone, notes and other things to use in the cage, because there have been reports of lizards received abdominal burns and other injuries of the electrically heated stone and accessories, if there is any interference. You also need a few things that dragon can hide under.

Another very important consideration in making a home for your bearded dragon substrate for use as flooring. This is an important aspect of overall health and welfare of the dragon. Baby dragons are often held in the newspaper or a paper towel to prevent impaction. It's also a way to ensure easy cleaning, and eliminates the chance that the baby swallow any surface. Tile is a popular method of substrate, such as non-adhesive shelf lining.

When it comes to the surface is recommended NOT to use reptile carpet, because the dragon can get her nails the carpet and it can lead to decreased blood circulation, or narrowing of the stream, the bearded dragon can leave no nails.

A wonderful alternatives for a favorable substrate Foods alfalfa pellets, rabbit, because they are easily digestible and does not leave much mess to clean up. Do not use wood chips or something like that with too many large sharp and indigestible pieces that can be swallowed or damage.
