How do you dispose of a dead bearded dragon?
Disinfecting the tank is a good idea as Kimmie suggested, especially if you don’t know why your dragon died. As far as disposing of his body, no extra precautions need to be taken. You can bury him straight in the ground or in a shoe box or wrapped in a blanket, however you want to do it.
How often should you mist your bearded dragon?
You can mist him/her 2-4 times daily. Monitor the humidity in the tank though, as high humidity can promote bacterial or fungal growth. Feeding amounts depend on age. Juveniles will eat more and more frequently.
