Our new addition! Norbert has a new bigger viv now so his old one was going spare so my girlfriend wanted a beardie of her own. We introduced him to Norbert and neither seemed bothered at all by the other, hes feeding well and seems happy.

Nice pictures but I must say no way would I trust one of my adults that near a baby - it's just so much protein to them and they can move REALLY fast when they want to.

There was a post on RFUK a few years back where basically someone was cleaning a viv containing a baby beardie. So it wasn't in the way he put it in with an adult in another enclosure. Came back 15 minutes later and couldn't find it :!: His question was "How could it have escaped?" :roll:

Oh god i didnt realise they would actually do that, so if a mother was left with her babies do you think she would eat one or two of them? Is it ok to let the 2 of them interact when gizmo is bigger, about 6 months? With norbert going to sleep very soon im sure gizmo will have grown a lot by the time he wakes up.

Unless you're prepared for a fight and possible injuries like this https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 822&type=1 I'm afraid you shouldn't consider any interaction. They are solitary creatures normally and unless you have two placid females you'll only end up with an unwanted pregnancy or a do it yourself kit for your vet.If mum happened to be around when the babies hatched - yes - they would get eaten!

So when we take them out of the viv for a run around or to sit with us its best to do this separately?

Nice looking beardy with interesting colours, I'm glad it didn't end up as a snack that would be horrific.

No norbert wasn't fussed by him at all, only introduced for about 30 seconds and that was it. But at that time i didn't realise that an adult one would eat one of its own kind :? I've seen them eat other tiny lizards but not another bearded dragon.
