How to Build a Bearded Dragon Cage?

Answer

Beardies are awesome pets. They are loving, hardy, and fun for kids and adults alike. But buying cages can be expensive and you can build one that's just as good with a little instruction. The first thing to remember is that every reptile is cold blooded so they need you to replicate their nature environment for them. Beardies need high dry heat, an almost desert like environment. Most cages can be made from plywood, mesh screen, adequate substrate, heat rocks, and a well laid plan with accurate measuring. A 60 gallon tank will be what you need for one adult Bearded Dragon, so if you are going to build your own and have a juvenile, it's best to go big. It will save money in the long run and a little extra room won't hurt him, just make sure he has adequate heat. Here is a great video that can show you how to make your own cage. Make sure all your paint and materials are non toxic and check the ingredients online to make sure they are reptile safe. www.youtube.com
