Looking up online for tank building ideas and such... And across the bearded dragon forum (which I do have an account for just do not use because constant 0-3 people online is kind of lame....) found this.... THAT would be neat to do.

The terrarium I am making for him... Is also going to be close to 200 gallons worth. Going to do a crossfire design (third picture), and instead of using the cheapo melamine which is uber heavy... Use cabinet grade plywood.

Lucky dragon! That'll be fun to do too. Good choice. A breeder I know lost a few dragons because the melamine enclosures were harder to regulate temp properly. So yea, I agree with what you're thinking.

Congrats on everything! Blessings to you and baby! I haven't read all of this thread, so do you still need doggie names?

I'm probably a bit late, but I know that sand can cause impaction in both baby and adult beardies. (Learned it on a reptile forum)

Good luck!

Yes I know. But again... In the 5 years he has been on sand it never caused it? I already gave up on all sand thanks to being bashed... So he is getting a sand box, to which I will still be bashed but I don't care.

Now with Calcium Sand... That is by far the dummest thing made for reptiles. Especially if they are lacking calcium they will eat it. Or just eat it because it tastes good.

I use sand on my Leo without an issue, she has been on sand for thirteen years so its probably not that bad. It only gets bad if you use the wrong grain size and/or they eat it because they are lacking minerals. I don't know if its the same with bearded dragons though. Like I said, the only bearded dragon I know is on repti-carpet.

You could call your dog, Tootsie? As in a tootsie roll, or I personally like the name Leila, it means "dark" and she has dark coloring. Hmm, I can't really think of more.
Do you need baby name suggestions? ;)

Actually we've come up with some names for the kid already.

Jim was never a sand eater or licker... He was always fed outside the cage or on his rock (non-live). And I cleaned it often because otherwise the smell gets bad! It was really bad when I got him back... Yuck!
