Reptiles, Amphibians, Invertebrates & Small Pets : Bearded Dragon Facts

This is a bearded dragon. Its scientific name
is Pogona vitticeps. This particular species of bearded dragon, is found in the desert,
in the scrub lands of Australia. They’re from the family of Agamidae lizards, and Agamidae
lizards are considered the old world equivalent of iguanas, as they come from Asia, Australia,
and Africa. The bearded dragon is very docile in nature, and has become a popular pet in
the reptile industry, and they are now readily available in the United States. Bearded dragons
reach lengths of only about twenty inches, and they can live up to ten to fifteen years.
Bearded dragons reach sexual maturity at about eighteen months of age, and they like to mate
after coming out of brummation, which is the reptile equivalent of hibernation. The females
can lay clutches of fifteen, to up to fifty eggs, and they usually take about two months
to hatch. The bearded dragon is an omnivore, feeding on both plant and animal matter, such
as insects,and sometimes, even small rodents. An interesting fact about the bearded dragon,
is when it feels threatened, it can rear up it’s front legs, showing it’s claws and it
can puff out the skin and the throat region, giving it the appearance of having a spiny
beard. Another interesting fact about the bearded dragon, is its drinking strategy.
It comes from a very dry climate, and when it rains, it flattens out it’s back,and it
lets the water accumulate, and then it lifts its hind legs, in order to have the water
drip to the corners of its mouth, and it laps the water up that way, and that’s a bearded

    It's not normal but by no means should you worry, it is referred to as cycling eggs if they lay infertiles without a mate. You just need to keep an eye on her when she is gravid to make sure she lays, if she retains the eggs too long get her to a vet, this is the same for a female cycling or a female that is gravid with fertile eggs.

  47. TheRetroGun says:

    Google LOL

  48. TJ bruno says:

    whats better to get, male or female Bearded Dragon?? and whats their average size as an adult.

  49. OrangeKaleidoscope says:

    It doesn't really matter what sex you get. But sometimes females will lay eggs without them being fertile (doesn't really matter). The average size for a P.Vetticeps is 2 foot (24 inches, 60cm), with half of that size being the tail.

  50. OrangeKaleidoscope says:

    I got the same problem here. I really like corn snakes, but you can't have them as a pet in Australia (unless at a zoo), which kinda sucks :/

  51. alex wikle says:

    so your a newb cause your watching this

  52. Miranda Carter says:

    I hav a female bearded dragon that is roughly 3.5 years old now. She eats roughly 3 dozen crickets a week and is 14 inches head to tail

  53. Ry Guy says:

    Wow mine never ate that much just 50 crickets a week. They can be overfed so you gotta be careful they are prone to being obese which can cause them liver failure.

  54. Ry Guy says:

    I feed mine 10 crickets a day.

  55. Reptile.Chick18 says:

    That's really small. Is she a dwarf?

  56. Ryder Skipper says:

    No, she is a red foot which are slightly smaller and she is female. Females have a tendency to grow up juvenile size

  57. PersonaG31 says:

    Thank u for mentioning the size it grows to be.
