Being a parent of three boys, it is possible to imagine what my boys ask me to purchase for them. I wanted to create my boys happy, but what on earth were theya lizard and three boys seemed like a bad combination to me at the moment.
My boys were old enough to look after pets when they asked me to get a bearded dragon, so I found no reason to be worried about it. I understood that when they are that excited, they’d do anything to take care of the new pet. What was missing was the understanding required to keep the creature alive. So, I set out to speak with friends who already have one.
Surprisingly, I discovered a great deal of fans in my area, and folks were very encouraging when I asked them about what many call the”beardie”. They advised me to see as much as I could about the bearded dragon, so I’d know just how to take care of this pet.
When our first Beardie came, I discovered that the critter extremely affable. You may say it was love at first sight for my boys, who actually made it a point to take care of their new pet.
I loved the reptile and, years later, we are still caring for him, and a few other reptiles, in the home. It is not always easy, but if you become a reptile enthusiast, all of the work involved becomes a worthy investment, as you know for a fact that appropriate care generates the best results.
I wrote this book to assist aspiring reptile fans with their own bearded dragons. It can be a rough ride sometimes, particularly if you’re just getting used to the day/night cycle, and the feeding requirements, of the species. But trust me, with time, you’ll get used to the procedure and you’ll be pleased with the results.
These reptiles hail from Australia, and are quite popular with reptile fans in america. Pogona vitticeps can be bought from pet stores and private reptile breeders across the country.
In comparison to other pet reptiles, the bearded dragon is often considered”the newcomer’s lizard,” because it is simple to take care of them even if you’ve not tried a reptile as a pet before. Thus, before you proceed to more exotic reptiles, consider taking care of Pogona vitticeps first.
Needless to say, there are other bearded dragon species; the demands of Pogona vitticeps’ cousins are alike. Bearded dragons are rather small in comparison to other national reptiles, making it perfect for children, too.
The first thing you have to take under account before purchasing a bearded dragon, or some other reptile for that matter, is the own skill to look after a reptile.
