Hello,

My boyfriend just got a bearded dragon he’s about 4 months I believe. But the pet store did not let us know that It’s risky to have one while I am pregnant and having a new born. How bad is it? Should I rehome him? Or is it fine to have him in a room where me nor the baby will be at?

My girlfriend and I both love on our beardies, that includes kissing on them 8 years zero sickness. The short answer is yes beardies COULD carry disease, but so can dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, PEOPLE ...... you get the picture. The truth of the matter is, it comes down to personal hygiene and habits. Keep its habitat clean and wash your hands after being in contact with it and i would think you should be just fine

Yes, that’s what I thought so too. It’s just being a new mom and just finding this out well overthinking and freaking out is to happen. Thank you so much!

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,
