Reptiles are much more intelligent than we humans tend to give them credit for, and that means they need things to entertain them. Otherwise they exist in a state of perpetual boredom, which makes them dull, inactive, and overall less interesting as pets. When reptiles have objects to interact with in their enclosure, they become less stressed and more engaged with their environment. This practice is called environmental enrichment.
It’s important to choose enrichment items (a.k.a. enclosure decor) that are appropriate to your pet’s natural behaviors. Bearded dragons are skilled climbers and burrowers, so providing a deep layer of substrate and sturdy climbing objects is essential for this species. Here are some other objects that serve a vital function in a bearded dragon terrarium:
Basking platform: A flat, elevated surface for basking, ideally made out of wood or stone for optimal thermal performance. The basking platform should be flat and large enough to accommodate at least most of the dragon’s body.
Hides: An artificial cave or burrow for the dragon to hide out of sight as needed. Helps increase sense of security. Should be large enough to accommodate the dragon’s whole body when curled, but should also be a tight fit.
