I was just at a big box pet store and was looking at the bearded dragons for sale. They looked so so small, about 3-3 1/2 " long. I asked an associate how old they were and she said they looked like hatchling but didn't know age for sure. I know dogs and cats should be 8 weeks old before rehoming and was wondering if beardies would be similar to that.

I don't know about specific age/size but I would guess it is safe to sell when they can safely hunt/eat and bask. Typically I see this around a month old.

More important is size and activity level. At 1 month old some healthy, well bred babies can be over 6" long whereas some 2-3 month olds may be smaller, not too healthy, slow growers in sub par conditions . So you look for size, best if they're at least 6-7" and active .

agreed, a huge issue i see with the really small beardies is trying to get feeders small enough for them, most people new to them don't understand what they need and will try to feed them food that is to big.

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
