With the right information they’re not difficult to look after, but they are still an exotic species. Our guides can help you navigate the pitfalls and keep your dragon happy and healthy.

Bearded Dragon Habitat

Bearded dragons originate from the dry, hot regions of Central Australia – which is how they come to be known as the Central Bearded Dragon. For this reason, their habitat in captivity should be hot and dry. Since our houses generally aren’t warm or dry enough for them, they need a specialist enclosure known as a vivarium. This section of the website gives you all the knowledge you need to set up and maintain the perfect environment for your bearded dragon.

Bearded Dragon Diet

Bearded dragons are omnivores which means they eat meat and vegetables. The meat they eat is made up of insects and grubs. Bearded dragons require a high level of calcium to protect their bones and organs. And to make it even more complicated, their dietary requirements change as they get older.
