Want to break into the world of reptile Pet Parenting? Or just looking to add a docile, interesting reptile to your existing family? Either way, Bearded Dragons (known fondly among hobbyists as "Beardies") are a great way to go.
Bearded Dragons are, without a doubt, an excellent beginner lizard and the first choice for many novices. They are commonly bred in captivity, are widely available, grow to only 18-24 inches, allow regular handling, and eat a wide variety of foods.
