Another monthly product review for you guys, the Fluker's Bend-A-Branch.
The bendable "vine" looks great in an enclosure and is especially fun for reptiles that love to climb.
Our baby bearded dragons use it for just that, they climb all over.
I love the natural wood look and the fact that it is soft.
And it is also perfect for chameleons and crested geckos as well. They offer 3 sizes so check them out Click Here.
Here is one of my monthly reptile product reviews the Zoo Med Repti Shelter on Chewy.com.
This unique and open-able hide by Zoo Med is a great addition to an enclosure for a shy reptile.
You can let them have a lot of privacy but easily remove the top of the eco-friendly ceramic hide if needed for cleaning etc.
The size small is what I reviewed and it is a good hide for hatchling bearded dragons, and other small reptiles including crested geckos.
For crested geckos it is also the perfect egg lay bin.
I like the design and texture of the hide it has a great moss rock esthetic, and would highly recommend it to adult reptile owners.
I would not suggest this for an enclosure for a reptile that a young child takes care of as it is a little heavy and breakable if dropped. To get your own Click Here.
Looking for a new hide for your Bearded Dragon this Christmas? Well Zoo Med has got you covered with the Habba Hut. Any new cage decorations help keep a dragon curious and active which is important for a long life.
Easy to order from Chewy.com the Habba Hut is a great hide and basking platform for any reptile. It stands up great to warm temperatures and looks great too.
I got the extra large size and it suited Weasley, one of our adult male dragons, just perfectly.
So make your dragon's holiday merry by getting him or her a new decoration for their enclosure, like the Zoo Med Habba Hut.
Add a little health in your bearded dragon's holiday with Fluker's Liquid Vitamin Drops. Follow the dosing listed and add vitamins to food or water sources for your dragon. I found the drops easy to use and store, and less messy than powdered vitamins.
Chewy.com carries this product and they ship fast too! The drops are easy to use and they make a calcium drop as well, and as you know dragons need vitamin and calcium supplements in their diets.
So stuff your dragon's stocking with a gift that will help keep them healthy all year long!
About 2 months ago Biscuit was 30 days gravid. She dug for over a week but would not lay her eggs. We were going to take her to the vet for emergency removal of the eggs when she FINALLY laid them.
Sadly most were yellow and dead right away, the rest started oozing and caving in despite having blood vessels and signs of life and eventually they died. All of them but one.
This little guy or girl was a fighter and showed strong signs of life. The weirdest part of this sole survivor was as time went buy the egg grew HUGE. It is the largest dragon egg we have ever had.
Over 2 months of incubation finally today 8.29.17 it hatched.
With a nose and tail out I breathed a sigh of relief knowing at least one of these guys made it.
I could already tell just by seeing the head this was definitely a larger than normal baby bearded dragon.
Just take a look at the size difference by a penny between a baby that hatched in July and this new big baby.
And look at the difference in eggs sizes.
And check out the comparison to this other hatchling born in July, both of them only hours old.
There is no doubt in my mind that this little guy/gal is very special. I will keep you guys posted on her/his progress on my Instagram.
Every month I review items from Chewy.com, an online pet supply store.
This month I am reviewing Flucker's Buffet Blend for Juvenile Bearded Dragons, the Veggie Variety.
The reptile food is a supplement that has dried veggies and protein pellets.
This yummy treat is great for an occasional snack or if you run out of feeder insects can be used as a supplement for a day or two.
It may take a bit for your dragons to snack on this blend as the shape is foreign to them, but you can mix it with their greens.
This month I am reviewing the Pangea Gecko Ledge.
This ledge is intended for Geckos but I find it works great for bearded dragons.
It has a magnetic side with 2 magnets to hold it in place.
And it has removable cups for easy feeding and cleaning.
It is very sturdy and looks like a rock ledge.
And I found it really useful for our bearded dragon cages that are high up so they can see out more easily.
I very much recommend the Pangea Gecko Ledge for any caged reptile, just be sure you mount it on the cool side and not under the basking light, it is not designed for high heat.
The baby dragons are growing fast and should be ready for new homes in a few weeks. They are getting stronger each day eating a healthy diet of crickets & greens.
Many people complain to me that their dragon won't eat greens and I firmly believe this is due to the breeder rarely feeding greens to their dragons, if at all. Dragons need a balanced diet and it is not good for them to only eat feeders all the time.
My strategy for getting new babies to eat greens is very simple. I feed my salad mix right away in the morning. Babies are hungry as soon as they wake up so they will go for the first thing served. Then a few hours later they get their feeder bugs. They quickly get used to salad first, bugs later and gobble it up before I can even dump it all in the enclosure. It is really that easy.
If you struggle to get your dragon (adult or baby) to eat veggies change up your feeding habits. Give their salad in the morning and do not feed them any feeder bugs until the afternoon and stick to it. They will get hungry enough to eat their salad eventually. Also you can give adults 1 day a week off feeder bugs entirely. Giving them only greens for a day or so will also tempt them into eating it. Dragons are smart, they will learn they are not getting any other food anytime soon and chomp their salads. And if your dragon is a shy eater give them privacy, they don't eat when you watch sometimes because they are nervous you are going to get them while they are vulnerable and distracted eating. Good luck!
