I have acquired a full grown bearded dragon and his enclosure...which is only a 40 gal at 36" long. At his size, he really needs a home at least 48" or longer. Anybody have one laying around? Maybe you need to downsize to something smaller?

Yeah...but that still wouldn't have been 4' long though. I wish you had telepathy too though.

That depends on what I can pick up the one I need for. If cheap enough, I'll likely keep it for the King snake when she out grows her 20 long tank.
For the right tank, I would gladly trade it with cash.

Wow...200 may be a bit too large actually. I don't think I'll need to go any bigger than 48-60 inches long and 24 inches deep...24 inches tall at the most.

i have an aquarium that's 48" long x 18" high x 13" deep. kind of on the small side of what you're looking for but you can have it if you want.

Free is good. Too shallow for the dragon though. Thanks for the offer.

Lol dude it don't take skills to go to Home Depot, buy the wood/chicken wire and just build a cage to your specs. That's what I did with my Savannah Montior when she was 42".

Dude...the enclosure has to maintain 105 degrees on one side and 80-85 on the other side. You can't do that with chicken wire and wood...regardless of your skill level. Besides that, I really don't want a chicken coop in the house.

I got one today that is 48x15...but would still like one that is 60 inches long and has more depth...20-24 inches wide.

If anyone has one, I've got a 48x15 and a 36x15 to offer in trade.

Thanks to chopped7 for the freecycle 48x12...the snake will be happy with it.

Joe, "that's a mighty big lizard you got there".

Do they all grow to that size?

Should I just stop typing now before I continue to make an *** out of myself??
