After reading this information I was eager to get a bearded dragon myself. I talked to my mom about it, but she said that they have more responsibility than rats. What do you Think? Sorry that it was not a comment.

My son has just started keeping bearded dragons and I would say they are more entertaining than a dog or cat. They are easy to keep once you have the right set up and easy to handle. Ours have become so friendly that they come up to the glass wanting to come out.

I have a Bearded Dragon who is the coolest pet of the lizard family that I have ever had. He is friendly, playful, and loves just hanging out. I put him on a leash with a harness and take him to the beach and he loves it. I take him on car rides and he sits on my shoulder and watches the cars go by. If there is any animal in the lizard family to own, it's this one.

My son brought home his beardie Toki from college and he is on the kitchen counter. I wonder though, if it is possible to overfeed him by putting too many crickets in the aquarium. It seems we all like to see him "feed" and I am worried we will blow him up!

I just got my bearded a few days ago, they told me it was about 2 months old, and this guy is so cool. he just sits on his rock until i take him out, and then he basically roams my room (i keep the door shut because of my dogs). So far, every time i go to put him back, he climbs my arm and sits on my shoulders, almost like he doesnt want to go. He seems to be eating healthy and he's very lively. I'm very glad i got one and im thinking about getting more. :)

I have a male beardie named Daggit. Im not sure how old he is, but he likes to climb my shoulder and in some parts of the day, when he is feeling lonely, he begins scratching the edge of his enclosure wanting me to pet him. He is about to have his first christmas with us. He's my best friend and loves to climb my shoulder. He loves big hoppers. I bought him a huge tank, with orange play sand, a shelter where he can rest, a rock, and a log where he likes to be most of the day. I'm saving money to buy him an artificial log where he can have shade on his colder side on the tank. When he wants to have company, he'll try to climb out of his enclosure to look out the window or to be with people. Well, I hope you enjoyed my comment. I love Daggit and he is the best reptile pet. While I was typing this, I had him on my shoulder. REPTILES RULE!

I have a pet Beardie, her name is Raphiella. She's about 5 months old and loves jumping and running all over the house. Ralphy is my 2nd lizard, I lost my first male over the summer. She, you could say, is a vegetarian. She rarely ever eats crickets or super worms.

I have had my beardies for almost a year. They are both 9 years old and about 13" long. I have a female and a male. They are a wonderful pet to have and i love them. They just kinda smell but it's an animal, it's going to smell. They are the best pet any teen could have. They are well behaved, swim in the bath tub, drink from the sink, run through house, and chase the dog. BEST PET EVER!

We lost our beloved female beardy "Bernice" May 26th. We are extremely depressed about our loss. She had such a great personality. We only had her for 4 months. We bought her we thought from a reputible place. She seemed healthy but she was fat. We introduced her to her mate and they hit it off of course. Bernie is going to be a dad, but three weeks after she layed her 30 eggs so perfectly and then we did our part, she seemed fine. Just all of a sudden she was listless and we couldn't wake her up Saturday and she would stop beathing off and on. The vet x-rayed her and showed us the three eggs left in her but were moved down, there were broken eggs -- we have no clue how she had broken eggs with a MASSIVE infection all over her lower belly. She got worse by the hour and all we did was cry and asked the vet to help her. She didn't even have a 50% of making it thru the night let alone surgery. We took her home and she died an hour later on my husband's neck. It was like losing part of our family. I am mad because I think she had already layed a clutch and this was left, then she was pregnant by our Bernie and layed her eggs and she very slowly got sick. We are getting her "taxidermied" -- might sound stupid but we want her with us. We miss her sooooooooooo much. And Bernie is depressed now without her and we can't find another female. She will get fixed because we don't want to go thru this pain again.
