I can not be of much help with your questions, but I wanted to say welcome to the site to you both! :D


Tom, of TND dragons is across the lakes from you, cmapplebeck, in PA. He has nice babies and is a reliable breeder with lots of experience in shipping.

As for beardies that need to be rescued...ncc74656 try craigslist.org :wink: most the ones I see on there in our area could really use some rescuing and lots of TLC.

Again welcome to the both of you! :)

Hey, I'm in Minnesota too! The breeder that I know from here is called Exotics & Aquatics. Seems like this guy has been around here breeding beardies for years. Many people now this place here, in the beardies world in MN this place is rather famous. Actually, I bought my beardie from a guy that bought it from Exotics & Aquatics.
Here you can check the website, but I believe they are not having anything until spring, but I might be wrong:

hey thanks for the site! i looked around online for some reviews and saw some nasty things..... about the shop but it could be from just a few ppl with a bad exp. who knows. but none the less it still kinda of deturs me from wanting to purchase a beardie from there. i shall keep looking and if i find a beardie breeder i will post info if i have the breeders disclosure.

ps.
E&A have been breeding dragons for 15yrs. the lady that i talked to from the store said they breed about 500 dragons a year.

Yeah, I saw the reviews before, it's just me that I don't pay much attention to that stuff. But anyways, you might as well go to the place and check it out, nothing to loose.
When I was looking for breeders here to buy a beardie, I couldn't find any besides E&A, TCR, or Leaping Lizard. So, maybe you should consider the option of buying online.

Where in Minnesota are you? I bought my first beardie from Leaping Lizards in Burnsville. I really liked it there, the woman who worked there seemed to know quite a bit about the animals she took care of. She owns a few of her own as well. She just bought 10, one month old red beardies from her breeder. There were a few hypos in the clutch.

Here's their site: http://www.leapinglizardsreptileshop.com/
Meeko - Red Sandfire Hypo BD, adopted on 2-3-12 at three and a half weeks old - Deceased
Fairfax - Grey/blue BD, adopted on 2-5-12
Lloyd - Red Sandfire BD, adopted on 3-6-12
Sniffles - Holland Lop
Bella - Holland Lop

I convinced the OP to check out Leaping Lizards, and they ended up adopting one of the adults they had there! :D Dudley was adopted from Leaping Lizards too. He loves coming back in for visits!
