There are many factors that contribute to the proper growth and good health of a leopard gecko. Aside from housing, temperature, and feeding, one must also provide the proper humidity. Humidity is needed for skin shedding, an important part of their life cycle. Humidity, a moist box, and observation can make the shedding process easier for the gecko.
To buy a bearded dragon check with your local pet shop or news paper classified ads. You can also visit a reptile show as there are many breeders that will know a lot about beardies and be able to sell you some.
BONUS TIP 1) A fourth excellent starter lizard is the leopard gecko, a delicate and very popular nocturnal species that has been bred into many colour morphs (it’s something like the lizard keeper’s equivalent of the guppy!). Unlike the other starter species I mentioned, leopard geckos are smaller (to about 6 inches), have soft, delicate skin, and have tails that are easily broken. Yes, they grow back, but only as stiff rods that never look as good as the original. They also require more gentle handling than the larger starter species. They do not need UV light, but they still need a warm Terrarium workshop (70 – 78 degrees at night, 78 -95 degrees by day), sandy soil, and places they can hide. Feed them live insects, especially crickets, young roaches, and wax worms.
What you feed your dragon will play an important role in its overall health. These creatures are omnivores; however, they should be given a diet that consists mostly of herbs. When I first bought my bearded dragon I was told to feed him just crickets by the person who sold him to me so this is exactly what I did. My beardie was sluggish and unhealthy for a long time until I did some research and found that these lizards need more nutrients that crickets can provide. That is when I changed his diet to contain lots of leafy green vegetables, squash and carrots to his diet. He still got his fill of insects such as crickets too, but only as treats and to supplement calcium. He started to become much healthier and more vibrant. I was much more careful with my beardie after that.
You can use a ceramic heat emitter, a radiant heat panel, or an infrared light to maintain heat during the night. You can also use a regular heating pad on the sleeping spot of your iguana.
A Wardian Case which is also known as a plant Terrarium is excellent for growing herbs indoors. It was invented by Wardian Case and is terrific for humidity loving tropical herbs like ferns. It is so easy to use that you will get hooked to it. The Terrarium is generally a glass case that holds moisture so you can conveniently forget to water the herbs. The moisture is sustained for days and sometimes weeks. Almost any type of herb that is not very hungry for space will survive in terrarium workshop singapore.
The second type of terrarium is the closed style. It is completely enclosed in a jar, glass, or container. This type is much more attractive and fascinating but it is also more challenging to make and to maintain. This type of terrarium is also very well suited for explaining how an eco system works because it is a closed eco system.
Sometimes if the pet owner doesn’t clean the cage properly, the Bearded Dragon will stop eating until it’s done to his liking. Clean the terrarium out really good and put a fresh supply of water and foods in it to see if it starts eating again.
