When considering habitat for Bearded Dragons, keep the following
fact in mind:
not place more than one adult male in the same enclosure. They
will compete for territory and food with negative results.
space is more important than height of the enclosure. Bearded
Dragons live on the ground and not in trees like some other
species. They will climb on occassion but not as much as some
require lids. Dragons might not climb for fun but they are willing
to do so as a means of escape.
best materials for enclosures are glass and wood (as opposed
to meshed materials). Materials that keep heat in the enclosure
are generally better than those that allow heat to escape.
adult male and female can share the same enclosure until the
female becomes gravid (is carrying eggs). When the female becomes
especially active or nervous, she should be removed to a separate
enclosure that has been equipped properly for egg-laying.
