you've already . seen zuma's 40 gallon rep sea habitat . for bearded dragons you'll know that . it's actually a kit and it comes with a . whole load of accessories and essentials. that you're going to need for your . bearded dragon so i'm going to show you . how to set up a bearded dragon using . this kit which was sent to me by zoo med . if you're planning to bring a bearded . dragon home this video may be of . interest to you or equally it may also . be of interest to you if you're looking . for ideas to maybe upgrade your bearded . dragon that you currently have so stay . tuned if you haven't already remember to . hit that subscribe button down below . become part of the creature creep and . also hit that notification bell over . there so you don't miss a single upload . today is going to be an unboxing and a . step-by-step setup of how to actually . create a bitter dragon environment . however if you're looking for bearded . dragon facts then i still have you . covered because i have an entire . creature feature dedicated to bearded . dragon facts so if you're interested in . bearded dragon facts or you want to. learn something different you might not . have already known about your bitter . dragon visit my description box down . below and you'll find my bearded dragon . creature feature before we get started i . just want to say this is not the . definitive guide to bearded dragons this . is how i like to set up my bearded . dragon as much as i'm sure you're going . to love this video remember to check out . other videos too because you should . absolutely look at how a lot of other . people keep their bearded dragons and. you might get some great ideas but stay . at this video first cuz that's not gonna . be the best if you keep bearded dragons . too and you've got some great tips to . share with people leave them in the . comments section below and you can . really help other people and share your . knowledge bearded dragons are one of . the most common reptiles in the reptile . hobby and they are a wonderful wonderful . reptile to start with and know it can be . a bit daunting to think about heaters . and lighting and substrates and all. sorts of different things that you have . to juggle when it comes to caring for. your bearded dragon so zoomit has you . covered and they've actually got a 40 . gallon bearded dragon kit which is a. premium. bavarian setup so that's the kit that . i'm going to be using today which was . sent to me by zoo med so thank you very . much more to zoo med for sending me this . i am sure that my rescued bearded dragon. bad idea over here is going to love her . upgrade let's go check out our very own . kit shh so first things first the space . and down here we've got a really great . space which is just a void right now a. void which we're gonna fill with our . enclosure. let's admire the sexiness now a 40 . gallon is the minimum space requirement . for an adult bearded dragon so this is . how big we're talking and it's big this. is my lifting for the day here we go . let's liberate this beast with my . seriously inadequate scissors already . you can see we have two sliding panels . and they are both covered in mesh it's a . mesh top five area which is great . because you definitely want to get some . airflow if you only have glass the whole . way around you're going to be hosting a . lot of negative bacteria so having a . mesh top zoomit has you covered and this . will ensure a good healthy supply of. airflow so let's remove this mesh oh . hang on a second so do you see this lip . just over here on the inside of the . vivarium this lip here is actually a . snake guard because if you are planning . on keeping snakes in this enclosure . which you very well could do it'd be . wonderful for a ball python or a royal . python if there wasn't a snake guard . there there's every likelihood that. snakes being such great escape artists . would be able to just nose their way and . just enough to push it open but if they . tried that in this enclosure they . wouldn't get very far because of the lip . underneath so that's a really great . feature well done to zoom out for that . here we're gonna slide both of the . panels off. and let's look at all these goodies on . the inside this is so exciting i have a . thing about bright packaging if there's . bright packaging and animals on it i'm . probably going to get it so first of all . we have zoom its guide to bearded . dragons by john clavier so let's have a . look on the inside oh this is great it's . got loads of really useful useful it's . got very useful hints and tips and then . helps you with understanding the kind of . maintenance you should be doing we also. have a thermometer humidity gauge allows . precise monitoring of both the. temperature and humidity of your . terrarium in one unit so that's a great . way to gauge what the environment is . like inside your bidded dragons . enclosure very importantly we have the . rep t basking spot lamp and the reason . why spot lamps are so wonderful is. because they concentrate the heat in one. area because remember your bearded . dragon is not always going to want to be . in the sun let's say that the entire. enclosure was very hot there would be . nowhere for your bearded dragon to . escape to so in actually having a spot . lab a spot lamp will actually . concentrate the heat on one side . enabling your bearded dragon to bask or . to go away and stay cool in another . section and that's very important so . this wrap t basking spot lamp should . last in theory about 2,000 hours which . is great and it provides heat day light . basking and uva which is wonderful now . this light is very important this is the . light that's really going to help your . reptiles to absorb the nutrients in. their food this is the number-one . fluorescent uvb reptile lamp worldwide . for desert creatures and the bearded. dragon is indeed a desert creature if . you're a bit lost on the lights let me . explain your bearded dragon or future . bearded dragon is a reptile and reptiles . are ectothermic they rely on external. heat sources to survive and stay healthy . if your reptile eats but it's cold it . can't and won't digest its food properly . that's why a spot lamp is so important . it gives your dragon the chance to . thermoregulate and to digest its food . now the second bulb is a uvb bulb this . bulb doesn't give off much heat that's . the spot lamps job but the reason that . the uvb bulb is so important is because . the uvb is what your dragon uses to. produce d . three is what allows them to actually . absorb the nutrients and calcium from . their food without uvb you can throw all . of the veggies all of the live foods and . all of the calcium you want at your . dragon' but even if they eat their food . it's going to be like eating cardboard . there's no goodness there for them . without uvb your dragon won't absorb the . calcium and they won't grow properly in . some cases they will become disfigured. and develop metabolic bone disease or . mbd for short in extreme cases they will . die so you definitely need heat for your . beauty as well as the uvb we also have . the rapti rock rec t food and water . dishes in the size l so it's large so . here are the food and water dishes they . are up to you whether you want to use . them for water and food or for food and . water so personally i would use the . deeper one for the water just so that. you make sure that you always have a . fresh supply in there that should be . changed daily by the way and then over . here this one would be great for your . greens you know bearded dragons love to . have mustard greens dandelion greens now . rip tea sand hold it right there . calcium sand so oftentimes when you see . calcium sand you get people going that . is the worst thing you could ever keep . your bearded dragon on it's gonna cause . an impact and it's true almost any . bedding can cause an impact in your bed . a dragon or almost any other reptile so. it's really down to you to be vigilant . to make sure that if your bearded dragon . is on a substrate which is easily . ingestible and which you think that they . are ingesting too much or for example . juvenile bearded dragons will do this . quite a lot as they're still learning . how to eat and to catch their food they . get mouthfuls of dirt or different kinds. of substrate it's up to you to find the . right substrate for your bearded dragon . i would say that the vast majority of . adult bearded dragons will know better . than not to go and get a mouthful of. dirt but if you do have live foods which . are tunneling down into the dirt or into. the substrate the sand the bark whatever . it is that you're using that can become . an issue so if you're very worried about . using sand and impactions then just . don't use sand just because it's in the . kit it doesn't mean you have to use it . but if you use it with great success . then great it works for a bearded dragon . and everyone should take into account . that every . dragon is different so you really want . some monitor your bidat dragon i've been . to the australian outback now twice i've. been very lucky to actually see a . bearded dragons in the wild and . everywhere that i've seen them there has . been sound around but it's not simply . sand there's there's lots of different . kind
