- (dragon not included with hammock)
- We tried other hammocks on the market that have suction cups grommeted to the hammock. What we found was that to clean the hammock, you had to pull the suction cups off the side of the cage. Over time, this decreased the effectiveness of the suction cups to the point that they didn’t work. Then, since they were physically attached to the hammock, the entire hammock went into the garbage.
- Some other hammocks on the market that we tried are made from a plastic mesh, not something you want to just throw into the washing machine. So when they get soiled (poop), you end up having to scrub them clean by hand with a small brush; reserved just for this task.
- These hammocks by Carolina Designer Dragons provide a comfortable, elevated vantage spot that bearded dragons are known to enjoy in their houses. These hammocks also feature the same “hand-sewn in the U.S.A.”, machine-washable benefits as the Chaise Lounges by Carolina Designer Dragons. The sewn-in internal batting gives a comfortable feel for your bearded dragon and won’t get lumpy after machine washing. Hammock size measures 16″ x 16″ x 22″. They come with three adhesive-backed hooks which are very sturdy and rated for at least 1.5 pounds. We haven’t had one fail when applied to a clean, dry surface.
- We follow these steps for positioning and attaching each adhesive hook. 1) Consider the height of your hammock; you want the curved front edge to be low enough for your dragon to climb into. This may include the use of a habitat accessory such as a stacked rock to climb onto first. 2) Attach the corner hook upright. 3) Hook the corner grommet of the hammock, hook the side hammock corner, draping the side edge to find the hook’s location when turned 45 degrees and trace its location with a pencil. 4) Peel off the plastic from the hook’s adhesive, press hook onto the marked location and hook that side corner hammock grommet. 5) Hook the corner grommet of the hammock, hook the back hammock corner, draping the back edge to find the hook’s location when turned 45 degrees and trace its location with a pencil. 6) If you have a background on that back wall of the habitat, use a utility knife to cutout the pencil-traced hook location. 7) Then peel off the plastic from the hook’s adhesive, press hook onto the marked location and hook that back corner hammock grommet.
