QnA on DIY bearded dragon setup

Bearded dragon setups can vary greatly in size, decoration and enclosure design. Here are some tips for getting started with a DIY bearded dragon setup: 

  1. Size your enclosure according to the size of your bearded dragon. A small enclosure can fit a small beardie while a large enclosure can accommodate a larger one. 
  2. Choose the right type of cage for your bearded dragon's needs. An open cage will give your lizard plenty of room to move around, while a closed cage is more suitable for those who want their bearded dragon to feel secure and safe. 
  3. Decorate your enclosure however you like! Bearded dragons love to explore so providing them with interesting objects and plants to look at will keep them entertained and happy.

A basking light may assist in keeping that area extra-warm.
