When it comes to these unique lizards, most don’t have any idea about the facts about bearded dragons at all. These awesome lizards are very common now from the very young to the older owners. They’re docile and fun to watch.
Knowing just what kind of reptile they are and what their natural environment is can make all the difference in their health and happiness.
Here are some common bearded dragon facts:
They’re raised in the sandy areas of Australia
They enjoy basking under their lights or even better outside with natural sunlight
They love interacting with their individual owners.
It’s not difficult to look after them, once you understand them.
They are just plain fun to watch and interact with.
These lizards are unique in their own way, each has their own personality and characteristics about them which makes them very fun to be around.
They need a long glass enclosure, so they can see what is happening around them.
They love vegetables and fruits, but they also need insects like crickets, meal worms, and pinkies once in a while.
The bearded dragon is quite friendly and will usually almost never bite. I have had beardies now for over five years and never have among them humiliated me without due cause. If they’re frightened or startled they may latch out by biting. But normally they first will puff up their bearded and turn black before every biting.
Bearded dragons are more bluffers than they’re fighters. They’ll look and behave mean, when in reality they are extremely docile and quite. It’s always a good idea when approaching a beardie to be certain he/she knows you are there, do not ever just grab one, this will definitely frighten them and they could bite at you.
From the wild beardies use the puffing of their beards to make themselves look much larger and meaner than what they’re. This helps their predators feel intimated rather than attack them.
They are natural predators and enjoy hunting for their prey. This is the reason why giving them such things as crickets is great. It keeps their natural hunting skills up.
Knowing these bearded dragon facts can definitely help you have a much happier and healthier beardie for several years to come.
