QnA on Best substrate for bearded dragons

Bearded dragons are one of the most popular species of lizard in the world. They require a substrate that is both comfortable and easy to clean. There are a few different types of substrates that can be used with bearded dragons, and each has its own benefits and drawbacks. 

One type of substrate is sand mats. These are great for repti-feeding because they provide plenty of sand to dig in, as well as insulation against cold weather. However, sand mats can get dirty quickly, so it's important to keep them clean. 

Another option is repti chips. Sani chips or repti chips are frequently produced from softer woods, like as aspen, depending on the manufacturer, making them a good option for bearded dragon substrates. It's best to go for a delicate, fine texture with little bits. The smaller and softer the particle, the simpler it will be for a bearded dragon to digest if unintentionally swallowed.


    What kind of substrate is harmful to bearded dragons?

    Ceramic, slate, and linoleum are the finest kinds of tile to use as a bearded dragon substrate. Neither glass nor metal should be used. Anything that reflects heat and light should be avoided since it might transform your beardie's environment into an oven. Stick to heat-absorbing materials instead.

    Which is better for bearded dragons: sand or carpet?

    It is not suggested that juvenile bearded dragons be kept on sand or any other loose substrate. Newspaper, paper toweling, or reptile carpet might be preferable options (but keep an eye out for stray threads or spots that may grab dragon toes).

    What does a cage for a bearded dragon require?

    They're cold-blooded and need a warm atmosphere to survive. During the day, a beardie's tank should be heated to between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit, with a midday basking place that's significantly warmer — between 100 and 115 degrees Fahrenheit. A basking light may assist in keeping that area extra-warm.

    Is it OK to use excavator clay on bearded dragons?

    Excavator clay is a fun alternative for bearded dragons and one of the finest options. It's a powdered clay that you mix with water. You create it in the bottom of your dragon's habitat after it's damp.

    I'm not sure how frequently I should mist my bearded dragon.

    Misting is vital not just during shedding season, but also throughout the winter. Remember that during the coldest months of the year, the air may be exceedingly dry. Make it a point to mist your bearded dragon — and the inside of his habitat — a few times each week when it's chilly outdoors.

    What is a bearded dragon's typical life expectancy?

    Bearded dragons, sometimes known as 'beardies,' are one of the most common lizards kept in captivity in the United Kingdom. They may live for 10 to 15 years, or even more, so they're a big investment, and it's critical to preserve them as close to the wild as possible.

    Is it possible to place a bearded dragon inside a hamster ball?

    Isn't it true that a hamster ball would provide your bearded dragon the freedom to travel and explore without danger of being lost or injured? Although it seems to be the ideal answer in principle, placing your bearded dragon inside a hamster ball is not suggested in practice.
