Bearded Dragon Pogona Vitticeps

The Bearded Dragon or “Beardies” as they are often affectionately known are a native of Australia. They are make excellent pets and are popular with children because of their friendly and calm nature, ease of care, and long life span. 

All our beardies are captive breed and are still juveniles, but they do grow quite quickly and may reach 18” - 24” head-to-tail, although females tend to be a little smaller.  Bearded Dragon have broad triangular heads, flattened bodies and a spiny pouch under their jaw which they can inflate if they feel threatened. It is this spiny beard-like pouch which gives them their name.

Housing

A bearded dragon will need space. The bare minimum size is 36″ x 12″ x 18″ for one lizard. Bigger is always better and much bigger is essential if you house more than one dragon in a cage. An aquarium or a terrarium fitted with a screened top can make a nice home for your pet. Height is also important because bearded dragons like to climb and sit on top of logs and branches.
