Bearded Dragons are the staple in the UK pet world, and the number one pet reptile. They are usually very docile pets, and are a great size, being big enough to be easy for children to handle, whilst not being too large to be an inconvenience to house. As a general rule of thumb, a Bearded Dragon requires a vivarium of 4' x 2' x 2', though the more space you can provide for them, the better. They are not a social animal, and are best housed alone. As long as they have the right housing, lighting and heating Bearded Dragons can live for around 10 years, usually 8 - 12 years is normal. They come in a variety of colours, known as morphs, and some can be truly stunning.
