Jim the Bearded Dragon!

He is a German Sandfire cross... Four years old!!! And what a character! I have never met a scaley that has such personality.. Until I met Jim. he bobs his head at you, tastes everything (Jim! That's not food! Put that down! Don't go in there! Spit that out! Stop taunting the other animals!)

You could say he is like a child
He is so friendly, loves car rides and loooooves mealworms

Thanks! Took him to the pet store and they were surprised how well taken cared of he was plus how yellow he was. They also mentioned (since they buy them and know their stuff) he is actually high quality.... Worth 300 by himself then Jim decided he did not want to be held so I made him walk to the car lol

Beardies are cool. We used to have one who would tease the cat and when you'd let him out and he was feeling frisky he would run and hide under the chest of drawers and bite anyone who stuck their hand in there.

They are great little characters, and I was quite sad when our Bob passed away.

How do you manage to feed him mealworms and such? O_0 Those reptiles cost a lot especially if you have to feed them live food and their heat bulbs.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I've always been tempted to get a bearded dragon. This thread isn't helping any at all! XD

How I feed mealworms: starting off with a few hundred (4.00 per hundred) using a shallow and wide bin I feed the wormies oatmeal, fruit and veggies to gut stuff them. Also encourages breedingm beetles get their own container with wood and such for the eggs to cling to. He is fed 30 mealies a day - so 100 only lasts 4 and some days. It does get pricey!! Bulk is better too... And cheaper.

Believe it or not, their diet is not supposed to be mostly insects. It is mostly fruits greens! Lettuce he loves although has no value... He LOVES strawberries and LOVES LOVES LOVES sweet potato.

As for the bulbs... We have a 50 watt sun glo and a red light for night. They do not really need that night light though... Just keep the temperature decent.
