    Bio Vines?

    What size Bio vines should be used for a bearded dragon? They come in small, medium and large. I would assume either medium or large, but you guys know more than I do, so...

    Bearded Dragons are terrestrial, not arboreal. They won't climb vines....

    No vines are needed. Get some slate tiles or some rocks and "glue" them together in a platform/mountain type structure so they can climb on them (you can "glue" them together with epoxy or silicone).

    Bearded dragons DO like to climb, use a sturdy branch, and fix it firmly in place but be very careful the animal cant get too close to the heat lamp. And yes make sure you glue any tilles etc. together as Steve`s said.

    It is true that bearded dragons are terrestrial but they will climb. I am sure that if you have vines in the enclosure, big enough that he/she could sit on, he/she would climb on them. They will climb especially to get closer to a heat source.

    Re: Bio Vines?

    I don't know if they like to climb is the right wording...

    They won't climb up a branch like an arboreal lizard would as in vertically but will like to climb and claw their way up a little bit but it needs to be flatter than an arboreal one would want/ need if that makes any sense at all. It is 4 in the morning... climbing up rocks or drift wood may work better

    Yes, they will work their way up to higher ground. Or even to the top of a BRANCH. However, they would be unable to climb a vine.

    I agree, give them a thick branch, shelf or taller rock to climb around on.

    Re: Bio Vines?

    Well, a bio vine can be used as a branch, really, as you can bend them any way you want. I heard that using real branches from your yard could be dangerous, so that's when I looked into this.

    You can bake a branch if it is small enough to fit in your oven at 250 for 30 mins or so or soak it in bleach water to kill all the bugs and germs and such, in the tub, then rinse well and let dry out.
