right, beardies are a tad on the more complicated lizard range, in relation to say leopard geckos....
their setup is as such:
2.5-4.5FT Tank for one, Heated rock ALWAYS ON!, hiding, branches of some sort to climb on (Optional) heat lamp that maintains a temp of about 70 F. you can uses chippings or sand.
they are daytime creatures so a U.V lamp is a must, but its ok, if u cant fit one into the set-up then Day time drops are ok.
As pets they are great, very active lizards, and fun nto keep, watch them when they are small cause they are extreamely fragile, I lost two within their first 4 months of having them, dont touch them for a couple of days after getting them, let them adjust to the tank, you may wanna hold off feeding them aswell for the first day or two, just ask the pet store to feed yours before u take it.
you can vary their diet aswell, which is great, they will eat fruit aswell as crickets,meal worms and what not. they will even eat pinkies, but thats not till they are much older.
if u have any questions dont hesitate to pm me, also, pm AngelWhore, he had one far longer than me.
Best of luck.
