Bearded Dragons originate in Australia but are now kept as pets all over the world. They are used to a hot climate and in the wild often spend time on the rocks basking in the sun when they are not hiding in the bushes and trees. Bearded Dragons are omnivores, they eat a variety of vegetation and insects. When threatened they are able to puff out their throats creating the appearance of a beard on their face, hence their name. Bobby the Bearded Dragon is very docile and friendly, so it is easy to see why they are such common pets across the world! When Bobby is not chomping down on his dinner he will be sunning himself in the heat!
*Bearded dragons can run up to a speed of 9 miles per hour, which is very fast for a creature measuring in at roughly 33cm (just slightly bigger than a ruler)!
Bobby the Bearded Dragon is suitable for children of all ages and is also great for the lizard feeding demonstration.
