    Eastern and central beardies can be kept together, just make sure they cant breed! And EWD and bluetongues I've seen togather. I'm sure you'd be able to keep EWD and CBDs or EBDs together. Mine seem to have no problem sitting together out of their enclosures.

    at armadale reptile park they keep a miriad of different species in enclosures together many different lizard spp are together as well as turtle/lizard

    theres even a redtail boa with an adult varanus tristis and a big king skink which is weird as i know tristis hate other lizards on theyre turf

    murry river, long neck and krefts turtles are kept with mertens water monitors and eastern water dragons

    think they had frogs in with boyds forrest dragons and perth zoo has mitchels water montiors with various turtles

    dragons spp and tiliqua spp mix relativly well especially if enough space and basking spots are provided

    I did NOT want to see that. I have a hard enough time seeing mice given to snakes let alone that photo. I get teary seeing pics of blueies in kookaburras beaks.
    I could never have my bluey in with anything else, unless she's got a full belly. She takes on everything, even lizards twice her size! She tried to eat my EBd today, so I tok her aside and fed her. Now she's fine.

    Mark that is a top photo! Excellent representation of nature.

    Keeping large monitors with dragons or skinks is just asking for trouble IMO.

    A monitor too small to eat the other lizards isnt all that risky. I would assume this would have to be the case with the bearded dragon and a perentie. It would never work as a permanent thing.

    Here is an example of juvenile goannas that escaped into the water dragon section of the enclsoure. I also used to let them into this area while small enough not to eat the dragons. At adult size they would eat any Australian dragon without hesitation. Some monitors can also eat larger items than other species, i have heard of a spencers monitor eating a lacy and water dragon of the same size (just what i was told, may be a slight exaggeration).
