Bearded dragons are one of the best starter reptiles, let alone lizards. Their latin name is Pongoa Vitticeps and they originate in Australia. In captivity bearded dragons eat captive bred insects and vegetables, but in the wild they often eat small rodents.
They need to be fed daily and can grow between 40 and 60 cm long.
Bearded dragons are called “bearded” because the spikes they have around their head resembles a beard. They use this as a defense mechanism and will expand their throat whenever they feel threatened.
