Overview

Bearded dragons make great pets as they love human beings and actually like to be handled by them. These are docile creatures but they can be aggressive if their space is being invaded by another animal. Bearded dragons usually live for ten years, but with the right care, which includes the right temperature, food, and habitat, they have been known to live for longer. Bearded dragons love to eat, but they should never be overfed as this could lead to paralysis in the younger ones who may eventually die. Their diet should include insects, fruits and vegetables as they are omnivorous by nature. They are susceptible to certain diseases such as calcium deficiency, gastrointestinal and fungal infections and should be taken to a Herp veterinarian if you see them displaying the symptoms of these illnesses. Like their other reptile counterparts, the bearded dragon is also prone to bacterial diseases such as salmonella, and as such, when you bathe, touch, handle and clean their cage, you need to ensure that you hands are properly washed both before and after any of these activities. Rubber gloves are highly recommended especially for use when you are cleaning their habitat to avoid the spread of bacteria.

About The Author:
Donald Wilson loves all aquatic animals, but reptiles are his favorite. He however has a special love for turtles and bearded dragons. He grew up as an only child but he never craved another sibling due to the fact that he always had animals around him. He always wanted a turtle or a bearded dragon but his parents decided that they were much too busy to spend the time that was needed to care for these animals, and he was too young at one point, and then way too busy himself with both school and athletics by the time he got to the age where he was old enough to look after one. As such, it was not until he was out of college and settled in his career that he decided to get not one, but two turtles; a Red eared Slider and a Painted Turtle and one male and one female bearded dragon. He knows all there is to know about turtles and bearded dragons and enjoys sharing his vast knowledge about them with all those who are interested in learning about these creatures just for their general knowledge but also those who are considering them as pets. He sees his turtles as his lifetime friends as they are among the longest living creatures in existence and although they do take a lot of care, it is completely worth it to him and he loves his friendly little bearded dragons who close their eyes when he rubs their heads.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon
We are first time beardy owners so I was looking for as much information as I could to take care of our two babies. This book provided a lot of good information so we can be very good caretakers.
Amazon
I found this book especially helpful, as it is written by a veterenarian, and contained lots of direction and "watch-out-for's" that I wouldn't have considered before reading this book. I am still in the decision phase of whether or not to obtain a bearded dragon, but this book was incredibly helpful in understanding them and their care needs.
Amazon
Great resource for anything you need to know about caring for your Bearded Dragon. I knew nothing about them and have kept my new friend happy and healthy.
