Buying a Bearded Dragon

Postby HarmonyLOVE17 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 7:09 pm

Hey Everyone!!
I have done a year and a half of researching care and basically everything on Bearded Dragons! I think I am ready to buy a dragon. I have everything for a dragon. I am just wondering, what websites are good for buying/ordering bearded dragons off from? :D :D
Thanks!

I'd find a local breeder , and then arrange to visit their place.

This way you get to see how they are caring for their adult and hatchling bearded dragons .

Also you'll get to see the hatchlings mom and dad …. this is going to help see what it will look like when fully grown.
You can then also observe the hatchlings in their rearing tank/s or tub/s and you will get a handle on their personalities, and you may see one who is very much interested in you (that's the one you want) , SO VERY IMPORTANT - you get to choose the dragon , it's not a random 1 second decision by a salesperson.

Or visit a reptile show , often there are breeders with stands and "livestock" on display and for sale at these , this can work well for you.

I personally would never buy a live reptile online and have it shipped to me. Just too risky and too hard on the animal.
