QnA on Bearded dragon temperature

A bearded dragon's temperature is carefully regulated to ensure its optimal health. During the day, the lizard basks in the sun to generate heat. At night, it retreats into a cooler area of its enclosure.

The temperature range for a bearded dragon is 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit, but they can tolerate temperatures up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit if the humidity is high enough. In the wild, bearded dragons live in warm, dry climates with a high level of humidity. Temperatures below 68 degrees Fahrenheit are harmful to them and should be avoided at all costs.

A bearded dragon's temperature is a very important factor in their overall health and well-being. Knowing the correct temperature for your dragon can help ensure they are thriving and comfortable. 


    Below are some general tips on how to keep your bearded dragon at the right temperature: 
    • Be sure to provide a warm, dry environment with plenty of hiding spots. 
    • Do not overheat or cool down your dragon too quickly; this could lead to injury or death.
    • If you notice your dragon is shivering, has a very slow heartbeat or breathing rate, or looks lethargic, it could be too hot. 

    How cold is too cold for a bearded dragon?

    There is no definitive answer to this question as bearded dragons can tolerate different levels of cold depending on their individual tolerance. However, in general, bearded dragons should not be exposed to temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit as this can be too cold for them to survive. Bearded dragons can live at temperatures as low as 65°F for a brief time. Due to the intense cold, the lizard will begin to display indications of inactivity and tiredness when the temperature dips below 65°F.

    How hot is too hot for bearded dragons?

    Bearded dragons can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, but they do not like to be too hot or too cold. The ideal temperature for a bearded dragon is around 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature gets too hot, the bearded dragon may become dehydrated or even die. While beardies can endure a broad range of temperatures, I usually advise owners to do the following. The temperature of the hot zone for basking should be between 100 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit. It's probably not hot enough if your beardie isn't sitting in the hot spot, gaping with its mouth open. 

    How can I tell if my bearded dragon is cold?

    If your bearded dragon is cold, you will likely see him/her huddled in a corner and not moving. If this is the case, you can use a hairdryer to warm them up. Start by blowing warm air on their stomach for a few minutes. If they don't start to warm up, try blowing air on their back.  The Consequences Of Being Too Cold Your bearded dragon's movements may slow down if they don't have access to a heat source or if their habitat isn't kept at a high enough temperature. Body functions such as going to the bathroom will be hampered in addition to slow movements.

    How do I keep my terrarium warm at night?

    There are a few things you can do to keep your terrarium warm at night. One option is to use a heating pad. You can set the heating pad to low and place it under the terrarium. Another option is to use a light bulb. You can set the light bulb to low and place it above the terrarium. 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit Temperatures should be kept between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit (24 and 29 degrees Celsius) throughout the day. You must insulate your terrarium if the electricity goes off. Styrofoam, cork panels, polyethylene, and bubble wrap are all good insulating materials to keep about the house. If you don't have access to any of these materials, you may cover your terrarium with blankets and towels.

    Is 40 degrees too hot for a bearded dragon?

    No, 40 degrees is not too hot for a bearded dragon. Bearded dragons are native to Australia, where the average temperature is around 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Bearded dragons are ectothermic animals which means that their body temperature depends on the ambient environment. In most cases, 40 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimal body temperature for bearded dragons. However, some bearded dragon owners have reported that their dragons are more comfortable at temperatures closer to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. 

    What temp do bearded dragons need at night?

    Bearded dragons need a temperature range of about 78-88 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Bearded dragons are ectothermic animals, which means that their body temperature ranges from about 78-88 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a little cooler than the average human body temperature of 95 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's important to provide them with a temperature range that falls within these limits in order to keep them healthy and comfortable. You can adjust their enclosure's warmth by adjusting the temperature or adding a heating pad. 

    How often do bearded dragons poop?

    Bearded dragons typically poop once a day. Bearded dragons are considered a cleaning animal. They eat a lot of dirt and other debris, so their poo is usually very clean. Some people recommend that bearded dragons poop every other day, but most experts say that is too often. A good rule of thumb is to expect bearded dragon poo once a day.  Pooping is normally done every day or two for children. Adult bearded dragons, defined as those above the age of 18 months, may defecate on a daily or weekly basis. The frequency with which adult beardies defecate is determined by their diet, activity level, and the way their bodies metabolize food.
