Hello everyone :)

New to the forum and me and my girlfriend are very interested in getting a bearded dragon (or two) but aren't too sure what type to go for. I have been told that there are 3 different types of bearded dragons. Some prefer heat, sand and so on I've been told. We aren't totally sure on what to go for as we are new to reptiles but very familiar with rabbits and small rodents.

We are unsure on what vivariums to go for either. We live in the London area (East London) and would like to know if anyone also knows any trusted breeders in and around London.

Do bearded dragons prefer living in pairs or more?



Thanks for your time :)

Bearded Dragons are solitary reptiles and will fight if more than one. Try the Swell Reptiles website, I have a XL Viv Exotic they are brill. They do everything you would need although the starter kits are a bit rubbish as I found out and ended up buying more stuff in the long run.

I have a leather back about 12 weeks old.
Hope this helps

All dragons have the same living requirements - basking spot around 39~42C and a cool side around mid 20's. You'll need a viv measuring 1200 mm x 600 mm x 600 mm, a UV supply and a basking light plus dimming thermostat to control it. This post covers what you've been told about multiple dragons viewtopic.php?f=20&t=9750 . Before you buy a viv tell us what the shop want to sell you as often they throw in items that are either too expensive or not needed. Hope this helps.

Rick
