Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you have ever considered owning a bearded dragon as a pet, then you will surely want to read this book. These lizards need to be kept in a special habitat called a vivarium. Because lizards may carry diseases that humans can catch, they should be kept in a special cage in which the humidity and temperature can be controlled. Bearded dragons are omnivores and will eat vegetation and live insects. Excellent photographs accompany the text and offer additional visual details. Text boxes offer quick tips and highlight the positive and negative aspects of owning a lizard. As part of the "Keeping Unusual Pets" series, a table of contents, index, glossary, and additional references are included. Adults, as well as children, should learn a great deal about these amazing dragons. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 8 to 12.
