Colorful Female Dwarf Bearded Dragon
what the heck is a dwarf bearded dragon? i have a tiny girl — only 65 grams, 11″ and she’ll be a year old in august. she’s otherwise very healthy, just hasn’t grown that much. so is there really such a thing as a dwarf?? or is that just a nice name for a runt?!
A dwarf bearded dragon has a genetic abnormality. It is not just a runt; a runt will catch up and will eventually be the same size or only slightly smaller than a normal adult. A dwarf will never be close to normal size even when fed the same healthy diet and kept under ideal conditions.
Hi. I was wondering if you still breed dwarf bearded dragons? If you do, do you ship? And if not, can you point me to some other breeders that could help me? Thanks
Thank you for your interest, but unfortunately I don’t have any available beardies and I don’t breed dwarf bearded dragons. The one I had was a genetic anomaly. I don’t know any current breeders of dwarf or pygmy beardies, sometimes also called Rankin’s or Lawson Dragons. You may want to find out if there are any reptiles shows in your area. There is usually a vendor list of breeders on the reptile expo’s website. Here are some former and possibly current breeders of smaller beardies: http://www.dachiubeardeddragons.com/rankins-dragons/, http://snakesatsunset.com/rankins-dragon-for-sale-pogona-henrylawsonii/, https://www.lllreptile.com/products/32135-baby-rankins-dragons (I have no association with these breeders and cannot vouch for the quality of the animals they provide). I hope this information helps, and you find your new pet beardie sometime soon!
