Advanced Bearded Dragon Care

- Discover all there is to know to keep a Bearded dragon in your own home! -


Dear Bearded Dragon Keeper,

The popular Inland Bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps), the new “household dog”, the “new pet on the block”, is attracting a lot of attention in the exotic pet trade during the last few years. These lizards have earned a lot of respect as extremely docile, interesting, easy and fun to keep reptile pets. Radical words such as fascinating, extreme, wonderful and many more are being used by keepers to describe these them. Bearded dragons are also popular because of their small size en suitable for both experienced and beginner reptile keepers alike.

These Australian lizards are now seen in large numbers even outside their natural environment. Advances in technology have made it possible to keep these extraordinary desert animals in your own home. Information has made it possible to feed these animals better than what they are used to even in their natural habitats.

Unfortunately although this is true, a lot of these animals don’t get the attention and husbandry they need. Some people fail because of ignorance while others are confused by the different opinions on the keeping of these animals. I have experienced that the vast majority of medical related problems in Bearded dragons are caused by incorrect husbandry (keeping, feeding, supplementing etc.). As a veterinary practitioner with a special interest in Bearded dragon medicine I’ve seen them all. Some will live, some will unfortunately die, but what is certain is that most of these expensive to treat or terminal diseases and conditions could have been prevented!

If you are reading this, you most certainly must be a Bearded dragon keeper who wants to be responsible and know how to properly care for your fascinating little friend.

My solution to you: The Advanced Bearded Dragon Manual. This eBook has it all, all the basic information you will definitely need to keep a pet Bearded dragon, including housing, selecting and purchasing, handling and feeding and loads of more advanced and interesting topics, most never seen in any other Bearded dragon book. Weather you are doing research before buying a new pet Bearded dragon, already own a Bearded dragon or are curious to find out everything there is to know, this eBook is for you.


Advanced Bearded Dragon Care eBook 

The Advance Bearded Dragon Manual covers all the aspects needed to keep a healthy pet Bearded dragon and more. The eBook is written in the same fashion and explanatory level than the hugely popular Basic Bearded Dragon, with the only difference that it contains more and more in depth Bearded dragon information.

Some of the topics covered include Bearded dragon care, anatomy, biology, the purchasing, handling and feeding of these animals. It also includes detailed information on the correct and different methods of Bearded dragon housing, a comprehensive zoology section where Beardies are seen in their natural environments, loads of feedstuffs with recipes that can be fed to both Beardies and feeder crickets, correct supplementation, Bearded dragon legislation, cricket breeding, Bearded dragon breeding and incubator setup, major Bearded dragon health issues, basic emergency care, import, quarantine and biosecurity and many more.
