How Much Does a Bearded Dragon Cost?

A bearded dragon, known as a “Pogona,” is one of the seven species in the lizard family.  These lizards are known to live in semi-desert regions, commonly found in Australia.  They tend to hang around on branches in the sunlight during morning and early afternoon hours, and over time, the bearded dragon has become a common domesticated animal that can be found both at zoos and inside homes.

What is going to be included?

Types of bearded dragons

  1. German Giant – These dragons will be up to 50 percent larger than other species.  These dragons can come in a variety of colors, and most breeders will create a unique color combination when breeding.
  2. Leatherback –  The leatherback has a mutated gene while prevents the scales from growing to a full size, giving the appearance of “smaller” scales.  Because of this, the skin will feel smoother and can help increase the vibrancy of the colors.  Like the German Giant, they can also come in a variety of colors, but again, most breeders will mate to create unique color combinations.
  3. Silkback – The silkback is created by mating two leatherback dragons, resulting in an even smoother appearance.  Like the leatherback, the scales will be even smaller, almost to the point when you won’t even notice.
