QnA on When is breeding season for bearded dragons?

Bearded dragons breed during the spring and summer months. The breeding season is triggered by increasing daylight hours and warmer temperatures. Females will lay eggs in a sheltered area, such as a cave or hollow log. After laying her eggs, the female will abandon them. The eggs will incubate for about 60 days before hatching.

Between the ages of one and two, wild bearded dragons reach sexual maturity. In their native Australia, mating takes place throughout the warmer months, between September and March. Many breeders in captivity give their dragons a brumation period before mating, while it isn't always required.


    Bearded dragons reproduce how many times a year?

    Bearded dragons are oviparous (egg-laying) and may have many clutches each year. Each ovary has two germinal beds, and all four may be present simultaneously in females. This implies that a new clutch may be installed before the old one is finished.

    When Can Bearded Dragons Be Bred?

    It's advisable to wait until they're at least 18 months old before doing so. Breeding them if they're any younger might injure your female. She may become infertile or even egg-bound, which may lead to death or the need for a vet to put her to sleep/operate on her.

    Bearded dragons lay eggs at different times of the year.

    Female bearded dragons typically lay eggs when they reach sexual maturity at about 8-18 months (around one and a half years), but in rare circumstances, bearded dragons have deposited eggs as young as 9 months!

    What is the duration of a bearded dragon's pregnancy?

    When it comes to bearded dragons, how long do they stay pregnant? From the moment of successful mating, a bearded dragon is pregnant for 4-6 weeks, and the eggs require 55-75 days to hatch. As a result, a bearded dragon may get pregnant both with and without mating, and you must provide additional calcium.

    What is the best way to encourage my bearded dragons to breed?

    To breed bearded dragons, begin by reducing the temperature and exposing the dragons to light in their cages for at least 2 months to allow them to brumate before breeding. Then, in a breeding cage, position both bearded dragons and wait for the male to climb on the female's back to mate.

    Why hasn't my bearded dragon spawned?

    If proper circumstances are not supplied, the female dragon will not deposit her eggs until she finds a suitable spot, which might result in serious problems. Bearded dragons that refuse to lay their eggs may become egg-bound.

    What is the average time it takes for bearded dragon eggs to hatch?

    There are a few good little reptile incubators that may be utilized at home. Set the temperature to 29°C (84°F); bearded dragon eggs will hatch in around 60 days at this setting. It's usually a good idea to have a second thermometer inside the incubator to keep track of the temperature.
