Along with leopard geckos, bearded dragons are one of the easiest lizards to look after, and a good first choice for the beginner keeper. They are robust, easy to handle, generally non aggressive, and have bags of personality. They grow to a maximum length of around 55 to 60 centimetres, live for up to ten years, and make a great pet for both older children and adults.
Bearded dragons are active during the day and rest at night, and can be kept either alone or in small all female groupings, although it is not always easy to tell the sex of a bearded dragon while they are very young and small. Bearded dragons tend to breed in captivity with relative ease, so if you keep a male with a group of females you will generally see eggs before too long.
