Additional Details

Bearded Dragons are a type of ancient lizard, originally from the deserts of central Australia. "Bearded" refers to a flap of skin under the chin that they extend when disturbed. They are usually even-tempered and seem to tolerate human interaction.

  • The name Bearded Dragon comes from their ability to puff or flare out the skin under their throats, often darkening the skin to a black color, which looks like a beard.
  • Adult male Bearded Dragons can be territorial and should be housed separately. Do not house different reptile species together.
  • Diurnal - Awake during the day, sleep at night
  • Environment: Desert
  • Diet: Omnivorous
  • Max Size: 24 inches
  • Lifespan: 3-10 years

  • The name Bearded Dragon comes from their ability to puff or flare out the skin under their throats, often darkening the skin to a black color, which looks like a beard.
  • This is a defense mechanism, making them look more threatening to predators and other animals.

Although bearded dragons can often be easy going pets, there are specific habitat and dietary requirements that are important to their health and happiness. Young bearded dragons can be kept in a 10-gallon or a 20-liter habitat as they grow and mature. Once they become an adult, they should not be kept in a habitat that is less than 40-gallons. An appropriately sized habitat will allow them enough space for activity and exercise. Consult our Care Sheet link above before buying a bearded dragon, to find out more about what your pet needs as you support and socialize them.
