    Hi guys

    I’ve recently acquired 2 bearded dragons from an empty house I’ve been working on. The owners have just left them and I couldn’t say no and leave them there so I’ve brought them home as I thought they will have a better life if I can learn how to care for them. They’re in separate tanks with lights and heaters as u will see on the photo. I just need abit of help as to how often to feed them, if they need lights turning on so often and how often to clean them etc. Basically everything as I’m in the dark with it all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would love them to have the best life possible. We now have fish, a dog a horse and 2 bearded dragons now lol. Will look forward to hearing off anyone who’s got experience with these gorgeous reptiles . many thanks , James.

    I researched alot online.
    So feeding is once a day of live food. They need greens every day too. Food needs to be sprinkled with calcium dust. A water bowl needs to be in their viv too.
    You know when they need cleaned out...once they poop it stinks!
    Putting them in a warm bath up to they armpits encourages them to poop also it helps with shedding.
    I work on 12 hours dark 12 hours light.
    My house is quite cold so I have a ceramic heat bulb on 24hours.
    Hope this helps.

    Also handling them daily helps to build up trust with them.
    I never thought I'd fall in love with bearded Dragons but they are great pets x
