Clean the baby dragon's house regularly. Since bearded dragons are messy creatures, their homes must be cleaned twice a day. It is a danger for a baby dragon's health if their surroundings are not kept clean because their young age makes them more susceptible to fleas and diseases. The highest mortality rate of bearded dragons take place during their first month.
Lizards can be found in all continents other than Antarctica. There are many different species of lizards and these reptiles come in different sizes too. If you are thinking of adopting a lizard as a pet, there are many things to take into consideration before making your decision. Not only do you have to take into consideration the size of lizard, also spend some time investigating the temperament. Not all types of lizards are ideal as pets.
There are approximately 5,000 "known" species of lizards around the world and a lot of them have become popular in terms of becoming household pets. The range in size, shape, color and look is so wide that breeders and ordinary pet lovers find them very interesting and for some, they consider their pet lizards as their collection.
These reptiles, just like every other animal in the planet, do get sick as well. Unlike other animals though, lizards won't show you their sick until it's too late. They either don't feel that they are sick or they are so good at pretending to be healthy. So be cautious of your pet lizards health and lifestyle in order to avoid severe illnesses that could cause its death.
Lizards by nature and not very child friendly. They can scare easily, and are usually big enough to hurt a child if they choose to defend themselves. The best choice for a young owner is the bearded dragon for the above reasons. It's really the only species of lizard that I can recommend. Keep in mind however that the key to lizard ownership is knowledge. If this is your child's first pet, something easier to care for is a better option. A little beta fish in a 5 gallon aquarium is probably as exotic as you want to go with a first-time pet owner. Lizards are more of an adult pet.
