 Water intake?

we were told before we bought out new guinea frilled dragon princess peach (or peaches) that frilled dragons drink water from the air. is this correct? i mean we still put a water bowl our water dragons don’t use anymore in her terraarium but just kind of curious. and as to the name it was going to be named bowser but they only had a female and we fell in love with her so mario theme stuck.

personally i haven’t heard of any animal taking water from the air but my frilled prefers to drink droplets i drop onto the top of her snout and she gulps it down and i spray the tank as well to keep humidity up.
with frilled dragons dehydration can happen because i have only seen a few that will drink from water bowls, i would try set up a droplet system over the water bowl to see if she drinks the droplets off a leave or just as they are falling onto her head.
hope this helps.

awe so cute this morning I sprayed her cage and she drank the droplets off the glass. then she started to drink the water off the calcium sand so i picked her up and poored water into my hand and she sat there and drank from my hand for like 7-8 minutes in was awesome. She was so thirsty. I think I will make that a daily routine. Nice way to bond :)

Thank you :)

Hi Dragongirl.....Oh if you have her on that calcium sand PLEASE get her off of that..that stuff is AWFUL it will kill your dragon..i HATE that stuff...if you want a good substrate use play sand you can pick it up at Homedepot or Lowes...much safer....I feel they should band that calcium sand it’ nasty...it’s almost like clumping cat sand...they ingest it and guess what you’ve got a compacted lizard..but please change it...

I agree with Annie never put any animal on calci sand
And a good way to get them to drink is yes spray them but what I do with my girl Ghost is give her a nice soak let her play and she will drink water in the tub

to monitor my frilled dragons water intake i use a 60ml needless syringe, and drip water on their nose till they start drinking. that way i can measure how much they drink a day.

if i had to guess. i give each one 10-15ml. but that doesnt mean all of it goes into their mouth.

they prob drink 8-12 ml threw out the day. you can also increase the amount of horn worms to increase hydration in their diet.

if you use a water bowl have a air bubbler that puts air in the water which makes the water move. i also will put mine in the water bowl once a day. my usually will sit in the water for 5 minutes or so.
