One of our favorite reptiles is the bearded dragon (pogona vitticeps). These Australian natives can grow to two feet in length and generally live between 4-10 years. They make excellent pets, especially for families with allergies or young children. Despite the scary name, they are quite gentle when handled frequently as juveniles.
Bearded dragons are usually housed in large glass tanks equipped with heat lamps and UVA/UVB spectrum bulbs. Adult bearded dragons eat fresh vegetables and adult bearded dragon food, supplemented with an occasional live cricket.
