There are many reasons people own exotic pets, but before buying one there are some things you need to consider. Not all exotic pets require the same investment of time & money that is needed to properly care for the animal you are considering. Before you purchase an exotic animal, you need to take the time to understand what is involved in providing the care that it needs and deserves. You can do this by researching the animal online, reading books, talking to people you may know who have similar pets, and by talking to people in pet stores & at expos. Keep in mind that not all pet store employees or vendors at expos have the same level of knowledge or motivation for providing accurate information. Also remember that there are usually many ways to do the same thing, and there may be more than one "correct" way. What works for one individual may not work for you. For this reason, we encourage you to educate yourself BEFORE buying one of our bearded dragons. A bearded dragon can live from 7-12 years, so it is a long term commitment. It is also preferred that you have a habitat set up before you purchase any exotic animal. This will reduce the stress on both the animal, and on you since you won’t be scrambling around to set up a home for your new friend.
