QnA on Bearded dragon cage

Bearded dragon cage

When you bring your bearded dragon home, the first thing you need to do is set up their enclosure. This can be done in a few different ways, but the most important thing is that the enclosure or the cage is large enough for your bearded dragon to move around in and has a basking area and a hiding place.

The size of the tank you need depends on the size of your bearded dragon. A good rule of thumb is that the tank should be at least 20 gallons for a baby bearded dragon and increase in size as your bearded dragon grows. You can also use a glass aquarium or a plastic storage container as an enclosure.

If using an aquarium, make sure to get one with a screen top to allow for airflow. The tank should be filled with substrate such as sand or reptile carpet, and you will also need to provide a basking area and a hiding place.

Bearded dragons make great pets for those who are looking for a reptile that is friendly and doesn't require a lot of care. The cage should be at least 2 times the length of your bearded dragon. 


    If you're not sure what size tank to get, it's best to go with a larger tank so your bearded dragon has plenty of space to explore. When setting up the tank, you'll need to provide a place for your dragon to hide and also a place where it can get warm. A UVB light is also necessary for providing your bearded dragon with the proper lighting.
