How Can You Tell From A Male & Female Bearded Dragons

I have researched so many ways and some of the answers are pretty hard to say. There are ways of knowing the difference of male and female dragons. Not all ways true and correct between two adult dragons.I know that baby bearded dragons are not easy to tell from male and female at their age.

So, what I have recently read so far, I hope it’s not to confusing to you all.

  • Male Bearded Dragons usually have larger broader heads.
  • Male Bearded Dragons tails are usually thicker at the base.
  • Male Bearded Dragons have more prominent femoral pores


Identifying A Female Bearded Dragon


  • Female Bearded Dragons usually have smaller heads.
  • Female Bearded Dragons tails are usually more slender and tapered.
  • Female Bearded Dragons have one bump or no bump on the underside of the tail by the vent.

Vitamin D

The most important for all Bearded Dragons is getting full Vitamin D.

Where do you get vitamin D from???

Answer is: Full sun light. Is the best for Bearded Dragons.

If your worried about putting your Bearded Dragon outside along. Here’s a solution to your problem.

I use this to protect my Bearded Dragons from predators from outside.

I use a bird cage and take out the rails sticks. Replace it with a very thick branch for them to climb on inside the cage. Cover the top with a towel on half side on top. So they can have shade on one side and sun on the other side. This will work great.

Bathing & Misting

My Bearded Dragons would love to bath and swim in warm water in a plastic container. I would fill the plastic container only half. ( Do Not Fill It Full or You’ll Drown Them. ) Get medium long plastic container to get them enough room to swim. They will poop in the water. That’s ok; it helps their skin to be more healthier with shedding.  This is what I use Below.

This will work fine for your Bearded Dragons. ( Without the lid on )

Also this will be great too. Either one will do fine.


All Bearded Dragons love water. I use this below for misting the Bearded Dragons.

I would mist Bearded Dragons everyday all over them. They LOVE it! Spray their enclosure too.  They will love you forever and happiness :) .


Cleaning Your Aquarium

When cleaning after your Bearded Dragons tank. It can be very stinky, smell really bad after they have pooped or peed.

The way I clean Bearded Dragons tank is:

Take out your Bearded Dragons and put in a pin area in your room where he/she can’t get out.

Than I change out the bedding in a trash bag. Throw it away. Replace with the same new bedding in the tank.

Take out the driftwood climbing jungle branch. Wash it under warm water and set outside in the sun to dry.

Wash all the food dish and water dish very well with soap and warm water.

Once you have everything out of the tank. ONLY use 1/2 cup of vinegar with half hot water in a bucket. ( Mixed together very well ). Take a paper towel or sponge to clean on the inside the tank. ( NEVER use Windex on the inside Tank. It will make them sick. )

Only use Windex on the outside of Tank glass.

After you clean and dry the tank. Put everything back in it’s same places.

There you go! A clean house for your Bearded Dragons.

I’m A Reptiles & Amphibians Owner

Hi, my name is Cecelia Ericson Skinner, I’m from Albuquerque, NM. I have worked at ( The Rattlesnake Museum ) in NM for 12 yrs.

My reptile pets I used to have are: Two Bearded Dragons, Fence Lizard, three Great Plain Skinks, House Gecko, African Clawed Frog, Whiptail Lizard, Green Anole and now I currently own a Tiger Salamander. I am an expert in all reptiles, amphibians. I really do love all reptiles and amphibians.

I decided to make my own career to start at home. This is my first time posting a blog about Bearded Dragons and other reptiles, amphibians. I find it very interesting for Kids age 7 on up to adults. This gives them a way to understand the life of a Bearded Dragons and learn how to care, love them like any other animals. As a respect of their lifestyle, knowing how to study every part of them. I, myself has raised two Bearded Dragons in the past until they both died of old age. I had one female and male together in one aquarium. Later on the female Bearded Dragon keeps laying eggs. Which her eggs was not fertilized enough to hatch. So, it was not easy trying to hatch an egg from a Bearded Dragon. Well, it’s part of keep trying to learn different ways to breed little Beardies. It will take some time to get it right.

Maybe some day I’ll start breeding some Bearded Dragons soon. For right now I just want to teach newer reptile owners about how to care for Bearded Dragons. That is my job, I find it fun and exciting for newer owner for their own pets. I hope you find this very welcoming to this blog.
