You can either get a bearded dragon from a local pet store or from a breeder. It's not uncommon for breeders to have the healthiest dragons because their bearded dragons have been raised in the same environment around the same dragons. This means there is a less of a chance of their dragons being stressed, sick, or injured from rival dragons.
However, you can still get very healthy bearded dragons from local pet stores as well. Just follow the steps below to make sure the bearded dragon is healthy before you buy it.
