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>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>
I was very disappointed when I read this... knowing that someone is trying to teach people to treat there bearded dragon with this misinformation you should be giving them calcium every day on there crickets when they are juveniles you need a UVB light and those vegetables are not all good for bearded dragons also juvenile beardies eat mostly crickets! and barely any veggies
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.
How will you take care of this if you can't even see this :<br> <a href="http://scimad.com/discovered-worlds-smallest-chameleon/" rel="nofollow">http://scimad.com/discovered-worlds-smallest-chameleon/</a>
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.
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.
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;I really hope you switched your dragon off the sand and rocks =/ thats is so sad that you would put him on those, look at how unhealthy he is in the photos.<br /> Try slate tiles, they look nice and clean up really easy.&nbsp;
&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?).
