A Great Guide to Bearded Dragons
Hey guys, in the years I've kept reptiles I've read through countless guides, manuals and books on reptiles. The other day I was at the local pet barn and saw this book called "bearded dragons" It was $25, I grabbed it after a quick flip through thinking if it's like everything else at least it will have some great photos.
I've never read such a greatly detailed book on Beardies before. Not just your general husbandry information, But it goes into the Natural history and ecology of the Bearded dragon, as well as a great look at the anatomy. Morphs, genetics, ect. Normally when I flip through these books I think wrong wrong wrong wrong. But am yet to find a section I disagree with. There was one paragraph entitled "The heating rock" So I thought here we go, How to kill your dragon, but no, they went into the dangers of the heating rock. First book I've seen do that.
Thought i'd just let you know as I found it very interesting and it taught me all the little bits of information my brain was missing. With some fabulous photos to boot. It's a "Pet expert" book entitled (lowercase) "bearded dragons" Author is Lance Jepson
One of my little ones seemed to enjoy the photos too!
(Sorry about the rotation of the first two, I am using a crappy Mac computer, rotation wont stick)

I have a book i like too, but like most books its very americanised, how much was that one you speak of Rocky?? might have to grab myself a copyMost everyone's mad here.........You may have noticed that I'm not all there myself....
That mullet is almost as epic as that snake!
I paid $25 at a pet shop, would be cheaper online somewhere. The good thing is everything is in our measurements but also has in brackets the american measurements.
