Bearded Dragons and Uromastyx lizards

I keep a beardie but not Uromastyx. For best results, google "bearded dragon care" and "Uromastyx care" and compare. They also don't look anything alike.

Welcome aboard, garners22!

I've not kept either of these lizards. Here's a YouTube video you may find helpful.

In addition here's Olimpia's Nutrition Chart on + & - gut load sources.

Best: mustard greens, turnip greens, dandelion flowers & leaves, collard greens, escarole lettuce, papaya, watercress, and alfalfa.
Good: sweet potato, carrots, oranges, mango, butternut squash, kale, apples, beet greens, blackberries, bok choy, and green beans.
