Bearded dragon ( Pogona vitticeps )
Bearded dragon ( Pogona vitticeps )

Bearded dragons are probably the most popular pet reptile currently kept in the USA. However, they have requirements for broad-spectrum lighting, and their insect- and plant-based diet requires regular calcium supplementation to avoid secondary nutritional hyperparathyroidism. These lizards do better in larger wooden or fiberglass vivaria rather than glass aquaria.
