Congratulations on choosing a bearded dragon as the newest member of your household! Beardies make great pets because they are friendly and well tempered. They are naturally inquisitive and have lots of curious tendencies that make them an entertaining member of the family. While exotic, bearded dragons are very popular reptilian pets for these reasons and many more.
To keep your beardie around for its full life (on average, about ten years), you have to understand proper bearded dragon care. Like any pets, bearded dragons take a lot of work and know-how to care for properly. That said, these lizards face a lot of unique challenges. Their cold-blooded requires a proper heat source, humidity, and environment, unlike warm-blooded dogs, cats, and other favorite pets that are more adaptable to changing settings.
