Step 7: your done!!!

That is all you need to know about care! The good thing about reptiles is all they ask for is your respect and care so if you keep them healthy and feed them, water them, and clean out there cage, they will show you respect to.
<p>Sorry, but this isn't a very good instructable.. It was very brief, unspecific and missing a lot of important elements, like how you should NOT use sand with young dragons because they can accidentally eat some up and become impacted. This is an issue with adults as well, however they usually can pass it since they are bigger. You did not go over proper food for a baby versus an adult. Babies typically get more bugs than greens because the bugs have more vitamins to help them grow strong, after they have reached their full size they typically will eat more greens than bugs. Your beardie looks under fed. I suggest feeding them the baby ratio of bugs to greens to get them back to their full size and color. You also did not go over proper temperature of the enclosure, basking lamps, locations and distance from basking are or types of lighting required. I am willing to bet that by just changing around your light and bulb set up, you can get your beardie looking a little bit healthier. </p><p>To any one who will read this for setting up a bearded dragon enclosure, please look elsewhere for more information, like here </p><p><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Complete-Bearded-Dragon-Care/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Complete-Bearded-D...</a> </p>
<p>You pretty much covered everything I was going to go over.<br>Please, no one follow this instructable</p>
Every single veggie you mention here is not healthy for a beardie. Use this site as a guide to know which veggies are healthy to feed your dragon (and which ones are not!): http://www.beautifuldragons.503xtreme.com/Nutrition.html<br><br>You should also clarify that baby, juvie and sub-adult dragons' diets are made MOSTLY of bugs and that they should have bugs every day. Usually around 50 crickets a day. A full grown adult eats mostly veggies and can get by on bugs every other or every few days for a total of around 50 a week.<br><br>Seriously, this whole Instructable sounds like advice from a pet store, which is almost always wrong.
<p>You should NEVER use sand! Did you do your research or are you just being cheap??? Very brief, wrong info. Do your research.</p>
<p>all the veggies that you have mentioned aren't very good for beardies. please do your research before buying another animal</p>
<p>this beardie looks very unhealthy and thin. my beardie is colourful and alert. he is about 1 and a half</p>
Sand is the WORST substrate for your dragon. Bearded dragons can't digest sand, calcium sand, or ground walnut shells, this leads to impaction. I suggest you do proper research before you go out and buy another animal.
<p>You forgot about spinach. While it&rsquo;s a good source of calcium it also binds with free calcium causing potential problems</p>
Did you even research before you went out and bought a bearded dragon?
Adult bearded dragons eat 70% veggies and 30% insects. For baby bearded dragons it's reversed. Romaine lettuce has almost zero nutritional value, so it isn't recommended. Carrots contain a lot of vitamin A, and in copious amounts, it will kill your dragon. Carrots are good for them once in a while, they assist their eyes. Broccoli is toxic.And no, not &quot;almost anything else&quot; is acceptable for your dragon to eat. Research, please, before you kill your dragon.
intresting article on bearded dragon care, but you have completely missed the UVB for the beardie, and you should not spray your dragon's cage for humidity.
You should not spray your dragon's cage for humidity. They need an arid environment and misting the cage can raise the humidity to dangerous levels, making them susceptible to respiratory infections. Since most dragon's won't drink standing water, the best way to keep your beardie hydrated is with a bath every few days or at least once a week.
cool instructable, your bearded dragon looks alot like mine in my instructables
well I'll try to be nice, you have completely missed the UVB for the beardie. Without UVB, your dragon will not grow very well it can and will be harmful to your Dragon. MBD (metabolic bone disease) is the effect of having no UVB. They will have very fragile bones and will die from it. And from what I can tell from your pics, you do not run one, very big mistake. So I guess anyone can post an instructable on here even if the info is completely off base.
Agreed. You should've talked about basking lamps too for that matter.

&nbsp;You split an infinitive in the title.
Those pebbles in the bottom of your beardies tank are asking to get swallowed, you should finely sift your play sand unless you want to run the risk of your beardie getting impacted (looking at your picture it looks like you are just using dirt?).
