Can any one help with information on bearded dragons?
There is no short answer to you question. (I love long answers). Bearded dragons are very loving and handle very easy and they only get 18 to 24 inches long. I have added some information to get you started. The requirements of an adult bearded dragon are as follows: One 40 Gallon terrarium or larger w/ lid (aquariums can be used as well) One log to climb on One water dish One food dish A substrate of your choosing (sand, carpet, newspaper, etc.) A heat lamp A UVA/UVB lamp A calcium supplement WITH D3 (2:0, not 2:1) Plenty of vegetables (squash, greenbeans, lettuce, cabbage etc.) Plenty of Crickets At least one book on bearded dragons for quick reference And…. A qualified vet (before an emergency), Having a vet will be the second best thing you can do for your beardie, The first is the UVB/UVB lamp. This is a basic set up. The total cost (excluding the beardie) will run you around $100-$200. More elaborate setups will get more expensive. The beardie itself should cost between $50-$15
The best forums are beardeddragon.org, kingsnake.com, and reptile rooms. The best care sheets I’ve found are http://www.calicodragons.com/caresheet.h… http://www.kakadudragons.com/caresheet/c… I like http://beardeddragoncaresheet.weebly.com… too, for obvious reasons 😉 There are also superb caresheets at these breeder’s websites: Sundial Reptiles, BeardieDragon, CaliDragon, Dragonz Whispers, and AlphaDragonz. The best health related site by far is anapsid.org A good general site is http://www.beautifuldragons.503xtreme.co… especially notable for its nutrition information section. The best site when trying to find out who is a good person/company to buy a Beardie from
