Bearded Dragon Facts & Tips
- Bearded Dragons tend to be docile (non-aggressive) although they can be skittish at first.
- They use their body language to communicate. When threatened, they will flatten their body and puff out their throat to make themselves appear larger.
- They like to climb.
- Pet Supermarket is here to help you choose the right food for your bearded Dragon.
- Their diet should consist of: Insects (including crickets, mealworms, wax worms), fruits (including apples, pears, bananas) and Vegetables (including collard greens, broccoli, kale).
- Provide fresh, clean water daily in a shallow dish.
Caging & Environment
- Male bearded dragons can be territorial and should not be housed together. The terrarium's temperature and lighting are critical to their care. Bearded Dragons need a "hot spot" for heat and a cooler area as well. Be sure to regularly check the temperature.
- Bearded dragons should go to the vet annually for checkups.
