    How many bugs to feed to a baby bearded dragon

    It can vary & you will quickly learn about his appetite. I try to offer each of my babies at least 10 little bugs per feeding. Leaving a deli cup with a hole cut out of the top as a feeding cup with bugs in it will assure he's getting enough if you're worried.

    Not at all, springtails will be very beneficial to your enclosure & maintenance. I have them in almost all my enclosures, It's amazing how much waste they can consume.

    Anyone use buffalo beetles in Dubia colony or in tegu setup

    They make an excellent cleaning crew & I have them in all my bug bins & bio active enclosures which range in size from tiny Mourning Gecko cages to a 7' x 4' x 4' monitor enclosures & many in-between. They do breed like crazy but we have yet to have overpopulation become a problem at all.

    Bioactive substrate question

    We don't have any tegu's but do have 8 bioactive enclosures ranging from small paludarium's to large monitor enclosures. The largest is 7' x 4' x 4' containing a pair of Green Tree Monitors. None require little more than occasionally blasting a plant or log with a strong mister with the...

    Where can I buy PVC boards for an enclosure?

    I recently went through this looking for material to build a snake rack. After a couple weeks and endless web searches / phone calls I ended up finding 4'x8' sheets of Centex at a sign company. It was an hr drive each way but worth it considering what it costs to ship a sheet to souther ca. I...

    Savannah Monitor help questions.

    These are all very good things! The fact that its regulating it's temp is excellent & odds are it was knocked over in the feeding process. Aggressiveness is also a very good sign when it comes to Savannah's. Keep up the good work! Not sure if your enclosure includes any kind of substrate but...

    Savannah Monitor help questions.

    If you have no access to a vet I would step up the size of your heat bulb, they really need a "Hot Spot" & in my experience underheating or overfeeding are the most common mistakes made with Savannah's. Try offering a variety of different items, live & prepared (ground turkey, egg or even wet...

    Savannah Monitor help questions.

    10 crickets at a sitting is ok but Savannah's are notoriously good feeders so if it's not feeding voraciously I would start by making sure it has a warm enough basking area which is critical for digestion. At one end of the enclosure place a hot flood light above a flat rock or piece of tile for...
