    Hi all,

    My Beady is getting on in age, he's over 6 years old now. He's definitely slowing down, still very alert but not as fast and active as he used to be. He's also eating less, only 3-5 2" dubias per day. I think he gets a bit discouraged cos they're faster than he is, but he won't eat anything else so that's how it's gotta be! He's also not as plump as he used to be, either.

    He's getting all the right temps and humidity levels etc, and is comfortable in his enclosure.

    Does anyone have any care tips for older dragons? Is there anything they need more than younger dragons? Anything I need to look out for in an older gentleman like him? I'm also wondering how old beardies can get in captivity. There are so many conflicting sources online (6-12 years! That's a whole 6 year difference!) so I'd like to hear it from those with experience :) Any advice would be great!
