Cages 

Bearded Dragaons need lots of room, vertically and horizontally.

A Bio House is a great option for Dragons. It provides a natural enclosure with living organisums in the soil as well as live plants.

Lighting and Heating 

Your drago  will require some very special lighting.

You will need to supply a UVB fluorescent bulb which is necessary for the metabolism of vitamin D3. We recommend using the strip UVB as it allows the entire cage to be in the UV spectrum 

 

Your bearded dragon will also need a reptile daylight basking bulb.

The size light you need in watts is depending on the size tank, and how far away your dragon's basking spot is. 

 You should not use heat rocks because they can potentially form hot spots that could burn your reptile.

If you see your dragon gaping (sitting with its mouth open) in the cool side, you will need to check your cage temperatures. Your dragon can be gaping to help control thier body temperature if sitting in the basking light.
