Bearded Dragons continue their popularity as a pet. Whilst they won’t be running around the park chasing a ball, they offer many other forms of interaction that are hard to resist.

Bearded Dragons continue their popularity as a pet. Whilst they won’t be running around the park chasing a ball, they offer many other forms of interaction that are hard to resist.

Their seemingly fearsome appearance is all bluff. Their spikes are set in soft skin and their beard (flap of skin under their throat that they can extend) is just added decoration to scare off any threat.

The average life span claimed is around 8 years of age with those being provided excellent care perhaps extending to as far as 15 years of age. Their size can also be dependent on their care and certainly which species it is. Generally they are anywhere in between 16-26 inches (40-65 cm), so they remain an easy  size to care for.

In the wild they seem to enjoy sitting on top of posts surveying their world of any action. In captivity this is environment is mimicked for them by providing branches to climb on where they watch anything that moves.

With nothing better for them than a bit of sunshine every day they make a great companion when sitting out on the back lawn or patio with you while they soak up those all important rays from the sun. Being reptiles they are of course ectotherms, so they use their environment to maintain their body temperature. Quite the little specialists in using existing resources to live!

Feeding time can certainly bring more amusement, especially when you watch them dart forward to grab their cricket, roach or whatever other insects they are provided. Although as they grow to adulthood they require less and less insects as they turn from being insectivorous to omnivorous where vegetation plays an increasing role in their daily needs.

How much do bearded dragons cost? Well that can be anywhere in between $40 or £20 upwards to $500 or £350 for specially bred specimens that have a fantastic color range or other traits. So they are relatively inexpensive, but don’t forget you need all the gear to go with them like the vivarium, heating, lighting, humidity control and so forth. That set up is likely to cost more than your pet. Add to that an allowance for a biannual vet check-up. Although that will actually save you money in the long run by ensuring your lizard is healthy and content well before any unexpected and unpleasant issues occur.

Although hard to resist, especially when maintained in a beautiful vivarium, they are not suitable for everyone. The bearded dragon, even though it is one of the easiest reptiles to keep, still requires specialised care to live a long and healthy life.
