Caring for Your Bearded Dragon
Do’s and don’ts for your new lizard.
Do feed your bearded dragon a variety of foods. Try mealworms, waxworms and crickets that have been “gut loaded” (filled with vitamins), and vegetables such as kale, collards, mustard greens, zucchini and shredded carrots.
Don't put your beardie’s habitat in direct sunlight. (Indirect sun is perfect!)
Do use a UVB lightbulb, if necessary, to provide your beardie with a daylight cycle.
Don't grab bearded dragons. Bring your hand to their level and pick them up gently and slowly.
Don't pick up a beardie by the tail or legs.
Do buy a book on bearded dragons to learn all there is to know about them.
Do support your local Herpetological Society and attend a reptile show. You’ll see nearly every type of pet reptile and you’re bound to meet veterinarians who specialize in treating beardies.Shop bearded dragon habitats Shop lighting Shop food for bearded dragons
