My new baby! SCAR!

Hey there, I’m not trying to be offensive or rude, but have you ever explored using a substrate in your dragons tank other than a loose substrate (i.e. sand, crushed walnut shells, any sort of wood chips..)? I’m not sure if you’ve ever been told, but loose substrates come with a very high risk of impaction (which oftentimes happens later in life) for your little friend. It’s definitely something worth looking into, since loose substrate may very well affect how long the little cutie will live.

I’ve done the research for you, and here are several forum threads and articles highlighting the dangers of these substrates! X X X X Warning: this next one is a very graphic picture of a prolapse caused or complicated by loose substrate.X 

Suitable substrates include newspaper, paper towel, reptile carpet, loose leaf paper, and tile. Basically; anything non ingest-able.

I’m not trying to be rude, but you have a couple of husbandry errors going on here. I’m just going to give you a couple of links to pages regarding proper husbandry for these little guys (:

I feel like 90% of bearded dragon ownership is looking over and your dragon is looking at you like this

It could be that he’s going into or coming out of ‘puberty’ and that’s affecting his attitude, however I’ve bought aspen bedding…

Woah there, a small rat and two mice in the past three days?!  I would definitely advise on giving him a week before feeding him again.. and giving him at least three days before you handle him. Remember, he could just be stressed over the bedding change! Also remember to wait a full 48 hours before holding or messing with him in any way (feeding him again) after a meal! To make sure you’re feeding him the right amount, make sure its 15% of his body weight every seven days. (If you don’t already have a grams scale I would highly suggest getting one) 

Just give him time to chill out
