      This is my beardie Komodo. She is a fancy bearded dragon. She really loves her crickets and loves to pretend she can’t see me.

          Is she your very first beardie?

          Yes! I love her so much. It is fun watching her grow and try new things. My mom has a leopard gecko that is 19 years old. I am trying to take as good of care of komodo as she has her gecko.

          That is awesome! 19! That speaks very well about the care that pet has been given. A wonderful example to follow. What new things has she currently done to amuse and amaze?

          She likes to sleep with her back legs dangling off her hammock and finally goes into the tunnel in her tree. She loves to sleep in her tree but she hangs off it while she sleeps. She likes to hold my finger through the glass.

          My mom was holding her today while she was on her phone and komodo was very interested in the screen.

          That’s great! She’s definitely ready to graduation to a leash.

      I was wondering if anyone explain how to tell if a bearded dragon is a girl or boy.
      I am just assuming komodo is a girl but would like to know for sure.

        Hey Dorian, I just answered that very same question for another forum member last week. I suggest you look up that answer and see if it makes sense to you. There is no photo with the question, but the request for assistance is in the name.

          I couldn’t find your answer to the forum member but I found some information online and in my book. Komodo is a girl.

      Is there a chance during brumation that a bearded dragon can die?

        I have not heard of this happening. However, freezing temperatures would probably do it. Anything above 50 should be quite safe.

          Sorry I didn’t realize I was on my moms account. I wanted to thank you for your reply on my own account. I do not know much about brumation and was worried.

          Is there a possibility that they won’t go through brumation?

      Hey Dorian do female or male bearded dragons live longer?

        I think a male would but I’m not sure.

        Males live longer than females that have experienced multiple pregnancies, as a rule. Other than that, with proper care in captivity they are pretty much the same.

      Is it important for a bearded dragon to go through brumation? I don’t think mine is.

        It is only important if you plan on breeding a female in the spring. Other than that, it is entirely up to you. Some people like their reptiles to brumate over the winter holidays if they will be traveling or entertaining and need a break from pet care, but if that isn’t you, and you want to enjoy a more active pet over the winter, just keep the temperature up. Daylength will indeed have some effect, and your beardie may be a little more sluggish than usual, but that’s OK and nothing to be concerned with. After the solstice, she may start perking up more. It’s OK to handle her if she is not going to be deliberately brumated, just expect a lower level of energy from her.

        Hi Chance. I really like the name Rex. How long have you had your bearded dragon?

          Only 10 weeks. I got him from someone who moved away. I’m pretty sure he is over a year old. I also have a turtle and frog in my room.
