Speedy does need to have her diet monitored closely to make sure she is getting enough calcium as we have discovered she has multiple healed fractures, most likely from a bought of metabolic bone disease in her younger years. However she is healthy and has great bone density currently and she doesn't let her past injuries slow her down.
Speedy enjoys being fed by hand, but eats a good meal of veggies and fruits from a bowl each morning. Chasing crickets, phoenix worms, and other insects is fun and a good source of protein and some that she very much enjoys. She is also quite friendly and enjoys sitting on a lap, especially in a good spot of sunshine, but will take off suddenly on occasion (hence: "Speedy.) Speedy has no fear of cats, dogs or children.
RCHS bearded dragons live in loving foster homes where they are socialized and fed an appropriate age based diet of crickets, phoenix worms, vegetables and fruits. They are kept in appropriate sized aquariums for their length and age and provided with UVB and basking bulbs as well as appropriate cage accessories. Bearded dragons do require a vet trained in exotic animal medicine and have special housing and dietary needs. We encourage you to please research bearded dragons thoroughly before adopting.
