What is your project about? My project is about improving my bearded dragons healthiness and exercise by creating 3 prototype toys. These toys were created and tested to see which toy improved my beardies overall movement in every given day. I learned that the prototype with the smallest holes and the largest overall size worked the best. Why did you choose this project? I chose this project due to my concern for my bearded dragon's health. Before using the prototypes my beardie was very lethargic and did not really move around his 120 gallon cage very often. I was worried that this lethargies could lead to medical issues and stress. So I chose this project to try and improve my beardies overall healthiness. What was your result/overall conclusion? My project was able to improve my bearded dragons movement as shown on the graphs on slides 8, 9 and 10 providing an overall difference in movement between having the toy and not having to come out to approximately ……. Why is your project important? My EDP project is important because exercise is quintessential to pets of all kinds. Without exercise pets would become lethargic and unhealthy. In Fact some house pets accumulate medical conditions due to limited exercise. The toy improves my bearded dragons exercise, helping him be healthy and non lethargic providing a happier healthier beardie
