Since reptiles are cold-blooded creatures, most humans don’t instinctively understand their requirements the way they understand the needs of a cat or dog.

Others have called this book the "beardie bible", and it is definitely my go to reference when it comes to bearded dragons. The book is put together by two herp vets and three veteran breeders. Unlike the majority of care and maintenance literature available for bearded dragons, all of the data in this book is either based on research or long-term observation. There is a lot of conflicting information out there, about different substrates, lighting, diets, etc. This book is instrumental in bypas ...more

This book is interesting because it talks about different species of bearded dragons. It talks about how some bearded dragons have brighter colors than others.

I learned that bearded dr ...more

This book is... AWESOME!! I call the manual my "Beardie Bible". I reference it as needed on ALL the important topics like lighting, environmental or medical issues and feeding schedules.

Plus for those wishing to do so, they have a Breeding/Breeders section. Also, a small (but well detailed) section regarding Frilled Dragons.

This is a well written book for all of a Bearded Dragon owner's needs. Everything is in full detail, and written with layman's terms, as to not make one question what the va

We recently adopted an adult bearded dragon. This book has taught me a great deal about her care and needs. There was a lot of information that I found online. The book helped fill in the missing gaps in instruction. She is a happy, healthy dragon thanks to the tips in this book. If you get a dragon, get this book!
