Our aim, and mission, is to produce the best possible pet care books that are a great value for money. This care manual will instruct you on the best practices for caring for a Bearded Dragon as a pet. The name 'bearded dragon' refers to a genus of reptiles which contains eight lizard species. The scientific name for this genus is 'Pogona' and they are also colloquially referred to as 'beardies.' The lizards within the genus gained the name 'bearded dragon' due to the extraordinary 'beard' located on the underside of the lizard's throat. In the wild bearded dragons can commonly be found basking on rocks or on the branches of trees due to the species adept ability to climb. They are found throughout Australia in a wide range of habitats ranging from deserts to shrubland and woodlands. Due to their hardy nature and interesting appearance bearded dragons have become a very popular pet and are fairly easy to care for in comparison to other exotic lizard species.
