Care of a young Bearded Dragon

Care of a young Bearded Dragon

The care consists of the right foods in the right amounts and also attention. Observe the bearded dragons well so you quickly notice if there is something wrong. Make sure there is hygienic. If the animals from birth have much contact with humans and many are used, it is more likely that the bearded dragons are somewhat tame.

Once the boy born they do many impressions from the environment. Make sure as many of these first impressions nice. They have a lot to learn. Other than in the wild have the barbs in captivity, in the first phase of life the ability to learn from each other. In addition, the animals are all in many behaviors (instinct). This is present from birth. If they crawl out of the egg are the basically just smaller versions.

After about 8 weeks old Baardagaampjes can be sold. Buy and sell Baardagaampjes never younger than 8 weeks old. Only when the animals over 8 weeks is the responsible to transport the animal. For this age can be stressfull, which even harmful to young animals. Try the new environment as much as possible to make the old environment so as to avoid stress. Have you just bought a young they may Baardagaampje in the beginning few wants to eat because everything is new and they have to get used to it.  


The first week: the first week, the bearded dragons on good absorbent, sturdy paper towels. This is at the edges stuck to the bottom to prevent the barbs and the food animals crawl under there. Only when the umbilical cord is overgrown/fallen (± 3 days) they can be placed on other land cover. The first week they stay in a relatively small enclosure. This to avoid injury. When the barbs have a lot of room to Sprint, they can run with the very heart cups against the glass, which can cause injury. When the boy big ones are the best they can be transferred to a larger terrarium. Be careful with too small a terrarium also when they are young they can fight and that fight may result in the loss of tails or cloves. 

Nutrition of the newborn young bearded dragons

In General, the young start the young after ± 3 days after birth to eat. This can of course also much earlier. Offers the boy from birth animal and plant foods. They prefer to eat 3 times a day. As they get older this may slowly decrease. The young bearded dragons can basically eat as much as they want. They must still grow. As they get bigger you have to go pay attention with the quantities.

Offers from day one live (and green) feed to, some are there easy access to and try all careful to gasp. It is best to the barbules 3 x per day live food. As they get older there may be slowly less often. The young bearded dragons can basically eat as much as they want. They must still grow. As they get bigger you have to go pay attention with the quantities. (never leave animals behind in the terrarium food that no longer be eaten).

We often hear that people have difficulty with their bearded Dragon eating vegetables. This is something that can be taught from an early age. If they eat a lot of different things from a young age they will keep doing this later in life also faster. 

Bearded dragons seem like good sweet and colorful food, so this also offers much to eat food so they learn quickly from. Make sure that the food is small enough so they can eat with ease. Make sure that the feeders are large enough so that all barbs there can and there is no competition.

Should also be given on the size of the food animals. A good measure is; the food animal must not be greater than the distance between the eyes on the head. Food that is too large can lead to Choking and intestinal blockage, simply because large quantities not consumed can be. This can even lead to death. In addition, some barbs become fearful for large insects. Therefore never let the insects in the terrarium at the boy running. In addition, the food animals the deer-damage/barbules. Once a beard once fear has developed, it can sometimes take a while before he is again quiet in the presence of food animals.

Make sure all bearded dragons get enough nutrition. If there are a few achterblijvertjes (often in each clutch), you can. choose to have this extra at. Try them with food and tweezers. Really want nothing more you can help them by hand feeding with a paste of e.g. nurti burt. Nutri burt is a rearing food for newborn birds (parakeets) This is nice and sweet in taste and can be given through an eyedropper lukewarm. When your droplets on the edge of the mouth causes, most barbs it is obvious oplikken. The young bearded Dragon must then go eat yourself again soon. Do not stay themselves trying, find a veterinarian or connoisseur in you neighborhood for help.(Lees meer over voeding voor de baardagaam.)

Water requirement 

The need for water: the young barbs should be sprayed twice a day, until they are large enough (few months) for a water Distributor. In young barbs should never be a water dish, because the barbs here can easily drown. (lees meer over de waterbehoefte van de baardagaam).
