Transcript of How to care for a Bearded Dragon

How To Care For A Bearded Dragon Young bearded dragons under 10 inches can live in a 20 gallon tank but not for long they grow fast. After they are done growing you can keep them in a 55 gallon tank. You want to be sure to cover the top of the tank with screens not wood or glass. This allows air flow. Bearded dragons need 12- 14 hours of light a day. Use the raptisun 5.0 or 8.0 floresent bulbs. And put the bulbs at the top of the tank to shine down, DO NOT SHINE IT THREW THE GLASS. The tank should stay around 85 degrees during the day and 65 at night. DO NOT use heat rocks, they will burn the dragons underside. Keep the cage clean and if you have a baby dragon don't use sand in the cage. Don't feed them anything bigger than the space between their eyes. Make sure they have fresh fresh water in a shallow bowl. Some Facts :) They are from Australia! They turn black when they're mad in the wild, when in danger they will stand on their back legs and run away. They have a limited ability at change color. When they are sick they are usually black with yellowish legs. They shouldn't eat lightning bugs, they are poisonous to the dragon. Bobbing of the head rapidly with a curved tail tip shows agressiveness. Even if they are desert creatures, they are not well adpted to sand. Sand is dangerous to them and can block their digestive system. They can "wave". It's not to say "Hi", it's to cool off their body temperature. Males can grow anywhere from 16- 24 inches long
