The bearded dragon is known to be docile and trusting yet outgoing and curious! The bearded dragon is a quite and gentle lizard and the bearded dragon is therefore a popular exotic pet for children.

The bearded dragon is a territorial lizard and should be keep in a big enough enclosure if the bearded dragon is kept as a pet. The bearded dragons diet is made up mainly of leafy greens which the bearded dragon plucks from trees and bushes.

Bearded dragons go through a period every year that is similar to a mammal's hibernation. The bearded dragon tends to become lethargic and the bearded dragon will not come out that often. The bearded dragon will also be eating less and the bearded dragon does this for a period of two to three months.
