Return to Rescue Animals

Under Quarantine…

Skittles is a new intake so is currently in his minimum quarantine period.

Skittles is a baby bearded dragon of around 16 weeks old. He was surrendered with 2 siblings by their breeder, as they were moving and couldn’t take them or rehome them due to health issues.

His previous enclosure was a 3ft vivarium with overhead heat and UVB. He was housed with 2 siblings and fed salad daily and insects most days.

Skittles is fairly active. He arrived with some kind of virus infection that affected his eyes, but eats well.

A baby in need of some TLC!

Care Requirements:

Skittles will need a minimum of 4x2x2ft wooden vivarium to allow for correct temperature and UVB gradients. A white basking bulb should be fitted at one end of the enclosure, powered through a dimming thermostat to maintain a temperature between 40-45C. A 10-14% UVB tube should be fitted across the top of the enclosure, ideally with a reflector directing the UVB downwards. A combination of hard and loose substrate will ideally be provided to allow for natural behaviours. Skittles is fed fresh salad daily and live insects almost daily with Calcidust and Nutrobal supplements.
