Well congrats on your new friends. I like the pic. where he/she is peeking out from under the rock. Looks like they're saying "Do you mind?"

thanks guys :-D
i was going to add more rocks and wood,however that makes it too easy for the
crickets to hide,then come out of a night and bite the babies.
mabe i'll add in some places some more sand,because they love to dig.

thank you :)
the only problem i have is the crickets hiding underneath rocks.........
so i think i may have to look for a feeding container,because if i don't
i have to remove the decor at feeding time then put it all back. ??

Lainey, they're lovely! :) Great looking setup too. How are they settling in, and how old do they need to be until you can sex them?

hay kate :-D
they are doing very well.i gave them a bath today,which didn't last long as one of
them did a poopie doop :roll: but that is a sure fire way of getting them to "go"
apparently.
i called them bert and ernie,although i don't know their sexes as yet,although i have a funny
feeling i have a boy and girl.......several months until you can be reasonably sure,
if it turns out two males,then they will be seperated,i'm not going into breeding as yet,
so i;ll probably still end up with another viv.

hi
thanks. :-D
minimum size for a bearded dragon 4x2x2 viv.
uv light no lower than 10% reptisun or other brand.
spot bulb for basking,
hot end 115 dF
cool end 80 dF
dimmer stat,to be attached to the spot bulb
thermometers on at either end.
one dragon.don't make the mistake i have..............
good book
breeder rather than a chain store.
heat bulb only if your house temperature drops below 60dF at night.
and that would need a stat without question.
rocks,wood,
crickets,locus,silk worms,roaches.
vegetables.
that's all i can think of right now,give me a shout if i can help with anything else.
:-D

nice environment you've got for your 2 beardies, if they happen to be 2 males they might hurt each other when grown up, I hope you know that?
UV light also prevents them from deseases as rachitis. UV light also helps them digest their food by giving them uvb wich gives your beardies D vitamines.
they look nice, have a good time with them.

thanks for the input. :-D
they are in seperate inclosures,and have been for quite a while.
i didn't want to take any chances,and i think there was the begining of donimance.
they were in sight of eachother,and i thought it wasn't helping,so one viv
is now on top of the other.
happy dragons.

have you any reps ?:-D

good work you seperated them, they can seriously hurt eachother or have serious stress wich is a very bad thing.
used to have 2 yellow bellied turtles, and I've taken care someone else's dragon's for quite a while, so I had 2 do research about them, so now I have some experience ;)
if they are male they have 2 bumps next to each other at the beginning of their tail, females don't have that, they have more like 1 bump.
but it happens that a male and female just don't like each other.
greetings!
