Bearded dragon care

Getting an exotic pet such as a bearded dragon might seem like a great idea, but before buying a bearded dragon ensure that you are prepared to commit your time, money and effort into raising a healthy, happy bearded dragon.

Bearded dragons can live for up to 12 years — that is a huge commitment. Will you be off to university in a few years? Are you likely to move house? Will you want children in the future? Think about everything and then think if you'll still be as committed to bearded dragon ownership as the initial enthusiasm you feel now.
