Bearded Dragon Captive Care

Bearded Dragons are quickly becoming a popular animal in the reptile hobby. They're hardy, beautiful, and have a wonderful disposition. On the other hand, they have some pretty complex care requirements. Due to this, they're sadly going the way of the Green Iguana in regards to the numbers of them that are suffering from poor care and misinformation. The goal of this sheet is to attempt to give a starting point for your proper care search.

Bearded Dragon Care & Breeding By Terry McGleish

The "Inland Bearded Dragon" rightfully earns it's name by the very pronounced beard sometimes shown in defensive displays as well as during mating behavior. By puffing out their throat area, both males and females can display a beard, although the male's is usually a much darker almost pitch black beard. Adult bearded dragons average 15 to 24 inches in length, while hatchlings are between 3 to 4 inches at birth. Young dragons grow fast and are sexually mature by one year of age. Juvenile beardeds usually start showing their coloration by two months of age.

Make sure a shallow water dish is available at all times. Adult bearded dragons may be fed once daily. Their diet should be varied and may consist of crickets, madagascan hissing roaches, king mealworms (zophobas) and newborn mice. Vegetables and fruits should be offered twice weekly. The vegetables and fruits should be chopped up and mixed together as a salad. Fruits and vegetables may include kale, collards, carrots, mustard greens, apples and bananas.

These gentle beasts are from Australia but are now readily available due to their willingness to breed in captivity. Bearded Dragons make a wonderful pet for both beginners and advanced reptile keepers. Due to their docile nature and relative small size (usually 16-20 inches) they have become quite popular in recent years. These beautiful creatures are highly recommended for families with small children also due to their seeming love for attention.

Bearded - Basic Bearded Dragon Manual

Pros Bearded dragons are still gaining popularity as household pets. Their numbers are climbing fast and they are already the most kept lizard in some countries (incl. South Africa). They are sun basking (heliothermic) animals which means they can be observed and appreciated in their terrarium throughout the day. If all their husbandry requirements are met, Beardies have little if any problems and they are very easy to look after. Because they are so extensively bred they are becoming fairly cheap in comparison with other lizards and even snakes.

Caring for an Australian Bearded Dragon by K. W. Tosney

Bearded Dragons get their name from their ability to "puff out" a throat pouch that has prominent spikes formed from modified scales. This "beard" can also change color, becoming jet black and even more impressive. Beards are not limited to males; the females will show off their beards as well, in a very interactive communication. Indeed, bearded dragons are very social animals.

Guide for Owning a Bearded Dragon - Bearded Dragon Resource

A bearded dragon makes a great pet for beginners and experienced reptile owners alike, but they do require some specialized care. If you are thinking about owning a reptile pet, I wouldn't hesitate to consider a bearded dragon. Bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps) are very docile and hardy animals that breed well in captivity. They are one of the most endearing pet reptile out there. Of course, I might be a little biased, but there are many others that share my opinion.

Canada Australia South Africa UK USA

Bearded Dragon Breeders & Suppliers Network - USA by State

The aim of this network is to create one location where you can find breeders and suppliers of Bearded Dragons who have adopted a common ethics policy. It is designed to help provide you with the ability to avoid those pet stores and breeders that sell very small baby, too young or sickly Bearded Dragons. It is becoming too easy to find tiny malnourished babies for sale in pet stores and by some breeder that only are intersted in the sale and not the follow through or future of this species. Inbreeding from the small gene pool available outside of Australia has become a problem in many locations affecting the size, health and immune system of bearded dragons.
