Bearded Dragons make some of the best reptile pets. They reach a manageable size of about 18-22 inches and only require a 40-75 gallon enclosure.
Getting a Bearded Dragon is a serious commitment. They can live from 5-12 years in captivity. We had Eddie for 10 years before we had to have him euthanized in 2005. He was the oldest Dragon my vet had ever seen at the time. Eddie and Bisquik's page has relocated here.
Bearded Dragons do require a few very important things to remain healthy.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Fireflies are lethal to Bearded Dragons. Even ONE can kill a perfectly healthy adult overnight.
