How Often Do Bearded Dragons Shed Their Skin?


Bearded dragons shed their skin. An adult will shed its skin every 6-8 weeks. Bearded Dragons originated and are native to Australia, but as their export is now banned, all Bearded Dragons sold in the UK are those that are born in captivity. They are actually Lizards. If looked after correctly, they can live on average for around 15 years. They are Omnivorous - they not only eat insects, but also flowers, greenery and fruits. Bearded Dragons got their name from their distinctive throat that they can 'flair' out to make them look bigger. They do this if they are threatened, or if they are displaying to sexually mature females. Beardies are also Ectotherms, which, like all lizards, mean they require an external heat source to warm their bodies.
