QnA on Bearded dragon habitat

Bearded dragons make their homes in deserts, subtropical woodlands, savannas and scrublands. They like to live in warm, dry climates with plenty of rocks and trees to bask in and hide under. Bearded dragons are great climbers and can often be found perched high in the branches of a tree.

    What do you need for a bearded dragon habitat?

    Bearded dragons need a large habitat with both a warm and a cool side. The habitat should be at least 20 gallons for one dragon, and larger is better. Provide a variety of plants to climb and bask on, as well as logs or branches for hiding. Bearded dragons need a diet rich in vegetables and calcium, so include several different types of greens in the habitat. UVB light is important for their health, so provide a basking light that emits UVB rays. 

    How big of a habitat does a bearded dragon need? 

    Bearded dragons originate from the arid and semi-arid regions of Australia. They like to live in an environment that is warm and has a lot of open space. A 20-gallon tank is a good size for one or two bearded dragons, but they will need more room as they grow. If you plan to have more than one dragon, you will need a bigger habitat or multiple tanks. Bearded dragons like to climb, so make sure their habitat has some branches or rocks for them to climb on. The floor of the habitat should be covered with sand or gravel to help keep your dragon's skin healthy and free from bacteria. 

    Where should I put my bearded dragons tank? 

    One of the first things you need to do when you get your bearded dragon is set up their habitat. Bearded dragons need a lot of space to roam around, so the larger the tank, the better. A good rule of thumb is to provide at least 20 gallons of tank space per bearded dragon. 

    The tank should be placed in a spot where it will receive plenty of sunlight, but make sure it's in a room where the temperature doesn't get too hot or too cold. You'll also want to provide a basking area for your bearded dragon where they can get warm and lie in the sun. This can be done with a special light or heat lamp, or by placing a rock under one of the regular lamps in the room. 

    Should I keep a water dish in my bearded dragon tank?

    There is some debate over whether or not to provide a water dish in a bearded dragon tank. Some experts say that bearded dragons do not typically drink from water dishes and that they can get all the hydration they need from their food. Others say that it is important to provide a water dish for bearded dragons, as they may drink from it if they are feeling hot or dehydrated.

    Do bearded dragons stink?

    No, bearded dragons do not stink. They have a very mild odor that is often described as being similar to cucumbers. This smell is caused by a substance called trimethylamine, which is also found in fish. Bearded dragons do not produce this smell unless they are stressed or sick.

    Do bearded dragons poop a lot?

    Bearded dragons, like other reptiles, excrete waste in the form of urates and feces. Urates are produced as a result of the breakdown of protein in the blood, while feces are the result of the digestion of food. The frequency and amount of waste excreted by bearded dragons varies depending on several factors, including age, diet, and health.

    Do bearded dragons need a heating pad?

    Heating pads are not necessary for bearded dragons, but they can be beneficial. If the ambient temperature in the room is below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, then a heating pad can be used to increase the temperature in the tank. Bearded dragons do well when the temperature is around 80-85 degrees, so a heating pad can help keep them comfortable.


    Bearded dragons make great pets for a variety of reasons. They are relatively easy to care for, they do not require a lot of space, and they are generally quite docile. Bearded dragons come from Australia, where they live in the wild in a variety of habitats, from deserts to woodlands. When choosing a habitat for your bearded dragon, it is important to consider the type of environment where it naturally lives.
