Bearded dragons, or “beardies,” are tiny creatures that are native to Australia. They have a long, thick tail and a spiky, beard-like collar around their neck and range in colour from light tan to brown. Even novice reptile keepers have fairly complicated nutritional and environmental needs, hence they are typically regarded as good pets.
Bearded dragons require specialised equipment and a significant amount of time to care for.
They are, however, gregarious and simple to tame, and they exhibit a variety of unique behaviours that make them fascinating to see.
