General How Long Do Bearded Dragons Live?

1541261176-2a.jpg
Bearded dragon pets can live for 7 to 12 years if kept in proper conditions. Poor UVB exposure, incorrect basking temperatures, undersized reptile tanks, and bad nutrition can drastically reduce the lifespan of beardies kept in captivity. On average, female beardies have a shorter lifespan because of the risks of frequently laying infertile eggs and breeding. In their native Australia, wild bearded dragons live for only 4 to 8 years. They are frequently hunted by predators such as dingos, Australian monitor lizards, and birds of prey. The oldest recorded pet beardie lived for 18 years and 237 days!
 
Many bearded dragon babies that are sold too soon after hatching are too fragile to survive into adulthood or suffer from viral diseases that reduce their lifespan if they reach adulthood. Housing more than one beardie in the same tank can also lead to a premature death due to injury or malnutrition. Larger species of bearded dragons, such as pogona barbata, tend to live longer than their smaller counterparts due to improved ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions and fend off predators.
