Water Dragon

Water Dragon

Water Dragons are a great option for someone who likes the look of an iguana, but either does not want the commitment or cannot take on the care required to keep one. Most of the Water Dragons in our Petco stores come to us as babies, solid green and adorable. As they begin to grow they develop beautiful markings on their body and blue and white coloration around their mouth and chin. Water Dragons are also very easy to handle and keep tame. When full grown, they will require a larger habitat with space to be active. Always provide a large water bowl. They love to swim and in nature will flee into the water to avoid land-dwelling predators.
