Car window tinted shades are used not just to enhance the look of your car, but to also act as a protection from harmful UV rays. When choosing the car film type and shade, several factors such as colour of the vehicle, interior colour and the levels of privacy needed, have to be taken into consideration.
Usually tinted films come in five different shades – dark, midnight, medium, light and very light. Another type of film which has been developed in concurrence with the medical profession is called Dermagard.
By using tinted window shades for your car, additional benefits of safety and sun protection can be achieved. Bearded Dragons (Pogona vitticeps) make excellent pets for reptile lovers.These lizards are called Bearded Dragons due to their ability to puff out and blacken the flap under their chin. Bearded Dragons are native to the arid desert regions of Australia, thus enclosures must be warm and dry. At least a 40 gallon tank for one adult Bearded Dragon and at least 90 gallons for two Bearded Dragons.
Thermometers and a humidity meter to insure proper temperatures and humidity levels are maintained. Calcium Carbonate supplements should not contain D3, because your pet should be getting it from UVB bulbs and sunlight and high levels of D3 can be toxic.
Bearded Dragons are omnivores and eat a variety of food including mustard greens, turnip greens, dandelion greens, collard greens, romaine lettuce, some fruits and vegetables, super worms, waxworms, roaches, and crickets. Fruits should be occasionally and sparingly offered and experimented with to what fruits your beardie likes. Roaches, crickets, wax worms, and superworms should be offered to adults 3 to 4 times a week. Look closely at the Bearded Dragon’s limbs, tail, and toes to make sure they are not swollen or broken. Look at the enclosure the bearded dragon has been kept in to make sure it is clean and the food is fresh. Bearded Dragons will spread out like a pancake when basking in light (especially natural sunlight).
Bearded Dragons can become a lighter shade that is often their prettiest color when they are sleeping. They lick their surroundings (although not as much as some other lizards, including iguanas). Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer next to the cage so you remember to sanitize your hands after handling your pet.
Reptiles need the proper conditions and environment to reach their full genetic growth and color potential.
It is very important to handle Bearded Dragons often starting at an early age, so they get used to people.
If you see your adult female bearded dragon digging a lot in her cage during the day, she might need to lay her eggs.
The tip of a bearded dragon’s tongue is usually white (or lighter pink) and a little sticky. You will read a lot of information about Bearded Dragons and some of it might be conflicting. Be aware of chemicals and objects around the house that a Bearded Dragon might come into contact with when it is out. DO NOT leave objects on the floor if your Bearded Dragon is out and be aware of household plants that might be poison. DO NOT feed your beardie insects from outside as they might have been exposed to parasites, pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals that can be very harmful or deadly to your pets.
Keep other pets away from your beardie’s cage and surroundings, because they will likely stress out your dragon. Stress can increase the potential for illnesses, diseases, parasites, and other organisms to spread, so it best to make sure their cage is set-up properly and kept clean and tidy.
Unfortunately, parasites are common in reptiles and are the most common disorder with Bearded Dragons, so testing your pet is extremely important. It is necessary to quarantine any new reptile before introducing it to other health pets to avoid spreading a possible parasite infection. Vitamin D3 deficiencies are also common in captive reptiles since most of them are housed indoors and natural UVB light must be substituted with artificial UVB bulbs. It is probably best to get two female bearded dragons and preferably females that have been kept together for awhile and are relatively the same size. Having two females is the only way you might be able to avoid having two cages and set-ups.
You can decrease the humidity level by removing any water dishes from the cage if you have any. Although the laws in different countries have certain rules and restrictions on the percentage of use of tinted shades for vehicles, clear security film can always be applied to the front glass and the passenger windows. These provide an invisible but effective protection having a tough coating which is scratch resistant too. This is a clear film filtering UV rays and cuts out hundred percent of the harmful rays while allowing visible light to pass through unimpeded.
They are active, entertaining, amusing, reasonably sized (adults are typically 18-20 inches), tame, hardy (they can live from 8 to over 12 years), and have great personalities! Below is a detailed list of supplies you will need to properly set-up an enclosure for your Bearded Dragon. Bearded Dragons are good climbers, so you will need a cover to keep your beardie from escaping. There should be a cooler zone with temperatures in the 80s, and a warmer basking area with temperatures 90- 100 degrees. I recommend digital timers, because they tend to last longer, are more durable, and many have a battery back-up.
Bearded Dragons like to get away from the heat sometimes and hide in shady areas, especially during brumation.
Without proper nutrition and calcium, Bearded Dragons can develop metabolic bone disease, deformities, broken bones, and become more prone to other illnesses. Feeders must be kept clean, because sometimes reptiles can get mites or other parasites from insects kept in feeders.
These greens include turnip greens, mustard greens, dandelion greens, collards greens, and romaine lettuce. Babies, juveniles, and sub-adults should be offered smaller size appropriate dubia roaches or crickets daily. This should only be done once or twice a month at most due to the high fat content in pinkies. Don’t buy a Bearded Dragon unless it is at least 6 weeks old and at least 6 inches in length. Make sure the bearded dragon has gotten proper expose to UVB light and has been given calcium supplements. For example, my adult male Bearded Dragon likes banana and Bearded Dragon pellet food, whereas my other Bearded Dragons refuse to eat them.
It is fun to watch them interacted with each other, and it is a good idea to get more than one Bearded Dragon so these behaviors may be observed (although they may need to be kept in separate enclosures). During this time, the temperature should be lowered to 60-70 degrees with basking temperatures of 75-85 degrees. You may also notice that young bearded dragons become brighter and develop more intense coloration after they shed.
If the urates are not white or light yellow, it could be a sign of a serious health problem like organ problems, dehydration, parasite infection, etc. The urates can also slightly change color in breeding season (usually becoming more red). They can easily grow more than an inch in a month and can even grow as much as an inch in one week! Bearded Dragons (and other reptiles) are very sensitive to chemicals and can die quickly if they are exposed. Temperatures should range from 80-100 degrees during the day and never get above 110 degrees, and never fall under 60 degrees at night.
Bearded Dragons tend to eat (or try to eat) anything that looks like it might be food, so be careful what your pets are exposed to.
Longer hairs that are ingested by your pet are very dangerous, because they can tear your pet’s intestines, cause impaction, or other digestive problems. The skin on mealworms cannot be digested by Bearded Dragons, and mealworms that have not been digested or killed while being eaten can eat their way out of your Bearded Dragon.


It is very important to prevent illness and keep your Bearded Dragon in good health, because it may be too late to do anything when you start seeing signs of illness. After 2 months, bearded dragons should be at least 6-7 inches and could even be as large as 9 inches!
They should be offered crickets once or twice daily, which should be supplemented every second or third day.
Some reptiles may show signs of a parasite infection like diarrhea, abnormal stool (usually watery), particularly smelly or foul feces, decreased or increased appetite, weight loss, dehydration, and with some parasite infections you may even see things moving in the animal’s feces. To have your pet tested, you must collect a very recent fecal sample from your pet and bring it to your vet for testing. Vitamin D3 deficiencies will cause problems with the absorption of calcium since vitamin D3 is critical to the process. I’m hoping you or someone else might be able to advise me on a question regarding my bearded dragon.
While plain glass will merely block UVB rays that cause sun burn, tinted glass block the more harmful UV rays from passing through. For comfort especially with kids and pets around, a medium or midnight shade will be a right choice. The best advantage of security films is they can hold glass fragments together if broken, so they do not get scattered. It is especially useful in sensitive skin conditions that occur as a result of exposure to UV rays. They tend to be easier to handle and care for than other lizards like iguanas, because they are more docile reptiles and tolerate being held well although there are always exceptions. If you have more than one Bearded Dragon, you will probably need to separate them at times although some females can get along together.
It is best to have a thermometer in both the cool side and warm side to ensure temperatures remain in range.
Do not use sticks or branches from outside as these may be toxic to pets and contain chemicals or organisms that may be harmful.
Calcium carbonate is the best supplement for Bearded Dragons, and you can get it at a health food or nutritional store. They should be washed thoroughly and chopped up to an appropriate size before offering it to your pet. It is also best to only offer them thawed out frozen pinkies to avoid any possible parasite infection. Younger Bearded Dragon babies are very cute, but they have a greater chance of becoming ill or dying. Some Bearded Dragons are more active, easier to handle, heavier sleepers, more social, etc. They can absorb liquids through their skin, so they can be exposed without even ingesting the poison.
TIP: Potho plants make great house plants and are edible and safe for Bearded Dragons to eat as long as they have not been treated with chemicals.
Also note that some fruits and greens can cause runny feces, so keep their diet in mind when analyzing their waste. Find a vet that is qualified and knowledgeable about your exotic animal, and always ask questions when you need to. Young bearded dragons grow quickly and it is very important that they have a nutritional diet at this stage so they reach their genetic growth potential.
Others may not show any signs of parasites until it is too late to do anything to save their lives.
The good news is vitamin D3 deficiencies are also completely avoidable as long as your reptile gets adequate exposure to quality UVB light (preferable the natural kind). Males have dominant femoral pores on their thighs and have bulges on the sides of the base of their tail. I’m really worried and sick she is ill as I found her this morning with her beard black, as well as her tail turning black, her tongue is white instead pink and even her teeth are black.
Thus applying tinted films to the windows of your car assures that your skin is protected from the sun. If privacy is what you are looking at or if your car is equipped with a TV screen in the back, dark shades will be the ideal choice. The films will be compatible with factory tints and they will be highly durable and have a scratch resistant surface. They also strengthen glass, so the risk of breaking on impact owing to accidents or some spiteful intentions is reduced. For adults, sand may be used with caution do to the risk of impaction. Bearded Dragons are from the Australian desert, and they enjoy digging and burrowing. My vets have advised to avoid supplements at a pet store, because they are not regulated and may even be harmful or toxic at high levels for your beardie. However, some baby bearded dragons need help finding their source of water and may need to be sprayed on occasion. Adults should be fed approximately 80% greens (adding in some fruits for variety) and 20% crickets and other insects (this is a source of fat and protein). Some will also eat chopped up mango, papaya, kiwi, banana, pear, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, grapes, and apples. Beardies should be allowed to eat as many crickets as they want in 5- 10 minutes, and when they have stopped eating remove the crickets. The bearded dragon should not lose much if any weight in this period and will remain in good condition. Bearded Dragons also have a small flap to cover their nostrils to protect it from sand and other objects.
Prolonged heavy or labored breathing could be a symptom of a respiratory infection, which would be need to treated as soon as possible.
They usually enjoy a bath at this time, and it helps soften their skin and makes it easier for them to shed. You should pick up your beardie by gently putting your hand under their belly and lifting them up by supporting their stomach and legs.
They should be allowed to eat as many roaches or crickets as they want in a 10 minute period. You can introduce other food like superworms, fruits, and commercial bearded dragon food in moderation. The sample will be examined under a microscope to determine the type(s) of parasites and the best course of treatment. MBD and calcium deficiencies can cause soft bones, multiple fractures, deformities, bloating, constipation, muscle twitching, and in extreme cases seizures and death. Also, males tend to have larger and broader heads than females (although this is not always the case). Checking for all these features and then investing in the car tinting shades will ensure long lasting life and a hassle free maintenance. Security films can be tinted too so the benefits of both the film types can be availed in one.
Two males should not live together, and a male and a female should be separate except for breeding times. You get reflective lamps at a hardware store instead of a pet store to save some money, but try to get one with a ceramic base not plastic.
Some people use newspaper, paper towels, tile, or other substrates for adults, but I find my adult Bearded Dragons enjoy sand best.
Bearded Dragons must be able to regulate their body temperature in order to digest their food properly. They cannot be cleaned thoroughly if there is any parasite infection and must be thrown out. TIP: The best way to give your Bearded Dragon calcium is to put several crickets in a plastic bag or small container and put some calcium carbonate in.
It may also be necessary to drip water on the tip of their nose with an eyedropper so they lick it off.
Baby Bearded Dragons should primarily be fed size appropriate crickets or roaches (no bigger than the space between their eyes) in addition to being offered fresh leafy greens every day. Beardies should only be given spinach and kale in moderation, because calcium binds to the iron in it. They may also eat red hibiscus flowers on occasion as long as they have not been treated with any chemicals.
Before giving crickets to your pet, put them in a plastic bag or small container with some calcium carbonate.


It is definitely worth it to pay a little more for a bearded dragon that is at least 6 weeks old.
Prolonged periods of gaping can also mean the enclosure is too hot and the temperature needs to be adjusted immediately. Start a hole for her with a small shovel and check on her after awhile to see if she’s laying eggs.
Many vets may say they work with exotics, but many are not familiar or well-informed about specific species like bearded dragons. The most common parasite in Bearded Dragons is coccidia, which replicates in the lining of the intestinal tract.
My first and favorite female Bearded Dragon that I had for 3 years died from a parasite she had the whole time I had her.
Also, on nice warm days take your pet outside on a screened in area or mesh enclosure for at least 20 minutes 3 times a week. Females have much smaller femoral pores and have one small bulge in the middle of the base of their tail. Bearded Dragon can cost anywhere from $30 to over $150 depending on the morph, size, age, and color.
They like burrowing under their caves and digging themselves a little bed almost every night. Then gently shake to lightly coat the crickets and feed your Bearded Dragon the dusted crickets. It is very important that you make sure your pet gets enough water without raising humidity levels in their enclosure, because they can easily and quickly become dehydrated (especially babies). It is very important to expose them to a variety of fruits and vegetables when they are young, so they get used to eating other foods. Younger bearded dragons most likely will not go through brumation the year they have hatched. She might not lay her eggs if the conditions are not to her liking, so may have to make some adjustments. They should also be introduced to a variety of different greens daily and fruits on occasion.
You can also offer them commercial bearded dragon pellet food in addition to their regular diet. They spread through ingestion of feces of an infected animal, contact with a contaminated object or environment, and from contaminated food.
Bearded Dragons are also susceptible to pinworms, tapeworms, hookworms, and other parasites. She was active, alert, eating regularly, mating, laying fertile eggs and then she suddenly died. I also recommend buying a mesh enclosure that can easily be brought outside on warm sunny days (like a mesh doggy playpen, which are inexpensive and foldable. I just recently gave her a bath to help her with her constipation- which was successful and always helps. Use 1 part bleach to 5 parts water and let it soak for at least 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. UVB bulbs need to be replaced about every 6 months to 1 year to maintain maximum effectiveness. Sand can be safe as long as the enclosure is set up correctly, beardies are always fed in a dish or other clean surface, and the enclosure is kept clean. Your beardie should be able to get within one foot of the heat lamp; lamps that are too far away are much less effective.
Baby and juvenile beardies should eat approximately 80% crickets and 20% greens (some fruits). Some people also let their bearded dragons lay their eggs in water, although this may not work with all beardies.
Greens include turnip greens, mustard greens, romaine lettuce, and occasionally kale and spinach (the iron in kale and spinach binds to calcium, so avoid giving your beardie too much too often). It is important to make sure they still get an adequate amount of calcium, so it best to supplement their food every other day. It is also possible for hatchlings to have coccidia even if they were never exposed to the environment of the parent. Fortunately, the parasite test is not very expensive or invasive (usually costing anywhere from $10 to over $60), and there are effective de-wormers and anthelmintics (primarily Albon and Panacur) that can help eliminate parasite infections. I was heartbroken especially since I had taken her to a vet  before she died, and the vet told me she was perfectly healthy.
Don’t use a glass enclosure outside since the it can amplify the light and get too hot). She has been sleeping lots lately and hiding out but I blame it on the heat as it is very warm these days. You can look at local classified ads for a used tank to save a lot of money, but again it must be thoroughly clean and sanitized before you use it. TIP: On warm days, bring your Bearded Dragon outside on a screened in area or mesh enclosure. Teresa Lightfoot, DVM, DABVP at Florida Veterinary Specialists & Cancer Treatment Center (FVS)). Water should be available in a shallow container, and the walls of the cage may need to be misted.
If a parasite is present, it will also be essential to thoroughly clean your pet’s enclosure and throw out all porous objects that cannot easily be cleaned like climbing sticks, rocks, organic decor, etc. I had even brought up parasite testing during the appointment with the vet, but I was led to believe there was no reason to be concerned, since there were no obvious signs of parasites and her behavior was normal.
It is usually difficult to determine the gender of baby bearded dragons, since males have not developed large femoral pores and any bulges may be difficult to see and distinguish.
My vet is closed for the weekend and there are not many experienced vets here who look after reptiles. The constipation makes me think it could be a high load of parasites, while the black tail sounds like it could be an infection.
It is a great idea to have the part of the cage where the bearded dragon feeds from to be tile or to lay paper down or a plastic bin to feed from to ensure beardies do not ingest the sand as it can cause problems. It is also a good idea to house you pet on newspaper and paper towels and used cardboard accessories until the infection is cleared up, so the cage can be easily cleaned daily and every time your pet defecates. Just 20 minutes 3 times a week outside or more will make a huge difference in your pet’s life.
Good hygiene is essential when handling Bearded Dragons, because, like other reptiles, Bearded Dragons can carry Salmonella.
Dubia roaches are the best feeder for beardies as they contain more protein and are more nutritious. TIP: Go to a hardware store and tile and buy natural filtered play-sand for adults (DO NOT use calcium-sand as it can cause impaction). Babies may each be fed separately in another small cage to ensure that uneaten crickets do not feed on your beardie. If an object cannot be cleaned thoroughly, it should be thrown out to ensure it does not re-infect your pet. You do not want to expose your pet to anything on your hands that might be harmful, and you do not want to contract Salmonella after handling a reptile. Play-sand is cheap (about $4 for a 50 lb bag), and it can be safe if the necessary precautions are taken. The cage will need to be cleaned thoroughly every day until the infestations has cleared up (usually taking 6-8 weeks).
Feeding each baby separately will ensure than each beardie is getting an adequate amount of food and eliminate competition for food.
It may be necessary to do more than one round of treatment to eliminate the parasite infection. If the infection cannot be eliminated completely, a de-worming schedule may be advised by your vet.
Only give adults freshly malted mealworms and cut them in half before feeding them to your beardie if you choose to give them mealworms at all. I do not recommend using reptile carpet, as it is difficult to clean throughly, can hold parasites, can smell, and should be replaced often.
