Did you know that the baby bearded dragon for sale is generally considered one of the all-time best pet lizards?
Beardies are well known for being alert, hardy and tame. Because bearded dragon owners love watching their lizards, whether during a feeding frenzy while chasing crickets or simply interacting with each other. Bearded dragons exhibit interesting behaviors, too, such as arm waving.
When arm waiving takes place, a female (and occasionally males) lifts a front leg in the air and “wave” it as a submissive gesture. A spiny “beard” from which the lizard gets its common name may also be extended. Although, it’s uncommon for tame captives to do so; dragons typically do this when alarmed. Baby bearded dragons for sale can be flighty at first but quickly can become tame relaxed pets!

Bearded Dragon Breeders care – Bearded dragon Lifespan
Average captive lifespan is between six and 10 years, though there are reports of specimens living twice that long. As you would think, better food and care provides a longer, better life for our bearded friends.
Bearded Dragon Habitat
While a hatchling dragon could live in a 20-gallon aquarium for a short time, it will quickly need a larger enclosure. A 75-gallon aquarium or equal-sized enclosure is OK for one or two adult dragons. Screening should be used for proper ventilation, whether as a top on an aquarium enclosure or in the construction of a custom enclosure. We use custom enclosures here at CB for all of our bearded dragon breeders.
During warm weather, bearded dragons can be kept in outdoor cages. Be sure the outdoor enclosure provides both sunny basking areas and shady retreats, as well as shelter from the rain. Having access to the sun outdoors provides healthy UV. Bearded dragons like to climb, so some sturdy branches are welcome in their enclosures.
Bearded Dragon Handling and Temperament
Want to learn how to hold a bearded dragon, or how to pick up a bearded dragon? Handling your bearded dragon is easy if you do it correctly! Bearded dragons are generally quite docile and will tolerate handling better than other lizard species. This is especially true of adults that have spent their entire lives in captivity (of course, there may be exceptions). It’s not unusual to visit a reptile expo and see fat and happy bearded dragons lounging amid merchandise at vendor tables, or perched on their owners’ shoulders.
Baby Bearded Dragon Lighting & Temperature
Bearded dragons like it pretty darn hot. A basking spot of about 100 degrees works well for them. The basking site can be provided by a spotlight (such as a mercury vapor bulb AVB) or a ceramic heating element, positioned over a rock, branch, etc. at one end of the enclosure. Keeping the spotlight at one end of the cage will allow your dragon to thermoregulate (move between a cooler end of the enclosure and the hotter end with the basking area). The cooler end of the enclosure can be kept at about 80 degrees.
UVB Lighting for your baby bearded dragons
In addition to the basking spotlight, provide full-spectrum UVB (ultraviolet-B spectrum of light) lighting over the rest of the enclosure. Because lighting is critically important for dragons that are kept indoors, as it assists them in synthesizing vitamin D3, which aids in calcium absorption. also, there are many types of bearded dragon UV lights available. Be sure to consult with store employees and read the packaging to determine the best for your setup. Also, spend some time reviewing our free bearded dragon care sheet.
Heat can also be provided using reptile heat tape controlled by a reptile thermostat. Also, you may use ceramic heat emitters and other devices available here at CB reptile. Keep a thermometer in the enclosure to track the cage temperature. At night, temperatures may go as low as 65 degrees.
Bearded Dragon Food
Baby bearded dragons are omnivorous, meaning they eat both animal and plant matter. They are not usually picky and eat with gusto. Insects, such as crickets and mealworms, should be dusted with a vitamin/mineral supplement and calcium. Dusting can be achieved by placing the insects in a plastic bag with some of the powder and shaking the bag to lightly coat the insects prior to offering them to your lizards.
Also offer baby bearded dragons for sale finely chopped veggies (such as romaine lettuce, zucchini, carrots, etc.), greens (collard, mustard, dandelion, etc.) and fruit (kiwi, banana, mango, etc.). Use healthy, vitamin-rich items; sprinkle the appropriate amount of powdered supplements on these foods, too. Avoid iceberg lettuce because it is not nutritious.
Bearded dragons will also eat pinky mice, and a wide variety of nutritionally balanced manufactured diets are available at pet stores, too. Again, if you keep your dragons on sand, offer food on a shallow dish rather than placing it directly on the substrate.
Water For Your Inland baby Bearded Dragon
Mist bearded dragons using a water spray bottle; they’ll lick water droplets off cage walls, rocks, etc., as well as themselves. Don’t overdo it; you don’t want their enclosure to get too wet and become humid. Offer water in a dish that is large enough for them to soak. Be sure to keep this dish and the water in it clean.
Bearded Dragon Substrate
Sand is commonly used with baby bearded dragons, though there is a concern, especially when keeping young lizards, that intestinal impaction could result if they accidentally eat some. It is not recommended that you keep young bearded dragons on reptile sand, or any kind of loose substrate. Newspaper, paper toweling or reptile carpet (though watch for loose threads or areas that can snag dragon toenails) would be better choices.
Adult bearded dragons for sale can be kept on these same substrates. If you must use sand, playground sand (available at hardware and do-it-yourself stores) is a decent choice due to the fact that it’s not as dusty as other types of sand. You can also purchase digestible “reptile sand” at reptile and pet stores, though opinions on the safety of these are varied. If you try some, be sure to follow manufacturer directions. Sand mixed with clean soil that has not been treated with any fertilizers, pesticides, etc., can also be used with adult bearded dragons.
If you keep your baby bearded dragons for sale on the sand, reduce the risk of impaction by offering food on a shallow dish rather than placing it directly on the substrate.
About Bearded Dragons for sale
Although several other species are becoming available to the pet trade, the most commonly available variety is the central or inland bearded dragon, Pogona vitticeps. This species is native to arid, rocky areas of Australia, and is typically tan/brown in coloration (but several color morphs are also available).
The bearded dragon name is derived from the spines that line their throats. These spines usually lie flat but if the dragon feels threatened, the throat is expanded causing the spines to stand up and making the dragon look like they have a beard and more intimidating (especially combined with their tendency to flatten their bodies to appear wider). However, bearded dragons are generally docile and their aggressive displays are rarely seen in captivity which makes them very popular pet reptiles for sale.
