Kfenk I'm lucky enough to not have experienced that particular pleasure but he is only small so I dont think he will pack a wallop for a while yet (I hope).
June maybe try a different web browser?
Jim he (only cause I'm not sure yet as to sex) is a shade under 25cm long and eats a combination of crickets and speckled feeder roaches what we call Woodies here and about 10% of his diet is greenery I put a pot plant in for him and let him take care of that bit or carrot greens ect.

Wow nice lizzy. I've always been rather curious on the idea of getting one. Did you need a reptile license to get him?

Good thing you don't have a bobtail, coz if those things bite, then goodluck getting your finger out of that lockjaw.

Bearded dragons are gorgeous reptiles. Got any vids to post on its feeding time? Very Happy Would be awesome to see.

Hey Silva,
Sorry it took so long to respond Embarassed Embarassed
Yes you need a license to keep beardies in Australia and I have had the misfortune to be on the wrong end of a bobtail.
Not something I am keen to repeat Smile I will see if I can get a vid or two of him at feeding time Smile

how much UVB does he get. Fisrt thing to check when a reptile is off his food is to sus his UV requirements. 9/10 time where someone comes into the shop saying their lizard, turtle or snake is off its food its cos it has no UVB. few walks outside will help out a lot. bout 15-20 mins every 2-3 days, or get a UV bulb Very Happy

Yeah I am running a uvb bulb, so I don't think that's the issue.... unless..... do uvb bulbs have a life time and where would one get a uvb meter ? also would it be possible that a globe is producing light in the visible spectrum but not enough uvb?

Hrmm, no idea. Is it a incandessent of fluro tube. if its a fluro it might be dropping off but i have no idea if the UVB would go before the visable light, i would assume not.

What is his normal food?

he is normally on a combination of roaches, Skink pellets and green leafy material with occasional silkworms when i can get them. I think that if he hasn't eaten willingly by monday I may have to take him to a vet and get an internal parasite check done Sad

Hi,what brand and strength uv do you have?How long have you had it? Most brands require changing every 6 months but the arcadia ones will last up to a year.They will still emit light but the uv diminishes over time.

Lol many thanks Bristlenoses, if most bulbs only last around six months, then it looks like I'm off to the pet shop tomorrow and hopefully we can get young Moses back on his tucker Smile

Sounds good,do you use a reflector at all? Natural sunlight is excellent for them so if you can take him out in the sun that would do him good.

You are welcome,yes i know quite a bit about reptiles as i have kept tortoises and chameleons in the past for many years.All my life I have been interested in many animals and have read lots and learnt lots and have always had animals in my life.I have always researched as much as possible,i love knowledge and like to know as much as possible on the correct care of animals and everything in between,even did a lot of genetic research when i kept and bred show rabbits.Not that i can remember it all now though lol.The only thing I have ever been interested in since i was very young are animals of all kinds.I would of loved to of been a vet or some sort of animal research scientist but unfortunately life didn't turn out that way for me.I love wildlife too and even flora and fauna.I better stop or I will go on and on and on Embarassed
