I'm Holly Friedland, program director of the Midatlantic Reptile Show, and this is how to care for your bearded dragon. Now we’re gonna talk about troubleshooting problems with your bearded dragon. One of the main problems with reptiles is that they don’t wanna eat. Most of the time, it has to do with their food, either you’re feeding the wrong kind of food or not enough of it. So, that’s one of the first thing that you wanna check. Another thing can be the temperature, if they’re not warm enough, they may not eat. And so, you wanna make sure that your basking spot is about 100-105, and the rest of the cage is between 80-85 degrees. Another problem that bearded dragons can have is that when they go to the bathroom, it smells really horrible. Bearded dragons, unfortunately, when they’re healthy and they go in the bathroom, it doesn’t smell that great, but when they’re sick, a lot of times it smells really horrible and that you’ll notice the distinct change in it. In that case, you should take your bearded dragon into a qualified reptile veterinarian and have a fecal done on it, because it probably has parasites. Another problem is they can have too much stress, and that can mean, maybe they’re, the cage is in an area where there’s too much activity and maybe the cage is low and a cat is jumping on it or kids are running back and forth in front of it and that can stress out a reptile. And some reptiles can actually die from being over stressed, so you wanna try to avoid that and have them in a place where it’s more calm. So those are the basics on how to care for a bearded dragon. Thank you for watching.
