    Smile How to give your reptile water and why it is necessary - Muppet the bearded dragon

    Here Muppet is drinking water from a second syringe full. So he wasn't that thirsty anymore.

    Just because you have an animal that isn't dead yet, doesn't mean you know how to care for it.

    You mean strange way? Because BD's don't drink from their bowl. Or not enough. And water is like super juice! They love it. We also put the probiotics in that syringe and we know he is drinking it. The problem with most lizards is that they do not drink enough water and people think the water we spray on their food is enough, it is not. Most lizards are extremely dehydrated also. It took me months to get him to do this, and he is very healthy because of it.

    That is awesome and I love that syringe you have there! Mine does not have that funny thing at the front, I should ask at the chemist for it. Will you post me a photo so I can print it for easy explaining please?

    He does drink the water by himself, at no time do I stick the tube in his mouth, rather I drip the water on his mouth and he opens up and drinks on his own. This is a great way to make sure we know he is getting plenty of water and the pro-biotics we mix in
