The #1 pet reptile?
What is a Bearded Dragon?
The scientific term for a bearded dragon is "
The bearded dragon is a lizard that is now the #1 pet reptile to have as a pet.
Before the bearded Dragon, The green iguana was the #1 pet reptile.
Bearded Dragons are really easy to care for, but first, you need the proper habitat.
You can use a 20 gallon terrarium when you have a beardie (juvenile bearded dragon) but when your bearded dragon gets older, you will need to upgrade to a 40 gallon terrarium. To save money, rather than buying a tank for when it's little and one for when its older, I would recommend on starting out with the 40 gallon terrarium.
Bearded Dragons main diet is crickets.
Other than crickets, you have to test out what your bearded dragon likes, because they are very picky eaters.
They also need to have fruits and vegetables in their diet, so try out different types of fruits and greens to find out what they like and make sure to give them small pieces.
Greens and Vegetables
Every Week you need to clean out the terrarium.
Taking everything out.
Cleaning the carpet.
Cleaning the excrement off the branch (basking spot).
Wiping down the glass.
And later putting everything back.
Every few days
Every few days you will need to:
Change the cricket food
Change the water
Buy Crickets/meal worms
Get new greens
Since the beardie is growing, he needs to shed his skin, although it may seem disgusting, it's part of nature!
Its important that you DO NOT pull at the shedding skin or it will hurt your lizard.
You just need to clean up the pieces of skin/scale?
Your beardie might show it's beard because they like to be dominant during shedding.
Since Bearded Dragons live in the desert, they need to have the warm side of their tank at an average temp. of 90F and the humidity should stay om the desert side.
Bearded Dragons are very calm and can be held with ease, although they like to jump around.
Here is the correct way to pick up and hold a lizard:
Bearded Dragons tend to grow to the length of 18 inches (45.72 cm).
But in captivity, some don't grow to their full size because they are restricted to a terrarium too small.
The reason why I chose this topic is because our family got a lizard.
We named him Spike because of his Spiky scales.
As you would imagine, getting a new pet really interested me, so I thought it would be a cool topic to do a current events on.
Now that you know all about owning and caring for a bearded dragon, let's look at some pictures!
