Hi! My name is Slater!

I was rescued from a local pet store due to injuries to my tail that needed to heal. I’m happy-go-lucky, carefree, engaging, adaptive, and cheerful with lots of energy!

I am still considered a baby, not quite a juvenile so I am still learning to be handled and to be with my people. I will require someone who has bearded dragon experience who will be patient with me and know what to do to help me be more comfortable being handled. I want to be social but it can be a little scary when my antics to get your attention work. One thing you can count on though is I'm a great eater! Right now I still eat 80% protein and 15% veggies and 5% fruit. An experienced person will know when that will start to change.

As a beardie, I require my own habitat as we do best housed individually from my age forward. With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life of up to 12 to 14 years!

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and you will be contacted to set up a date!

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT SHIP OUR ANIMALS. We can only accept applications from interested parties who are in or near San Diego County, California at this time.

Animal Care Reference Material:

The bearded dragon is probably the most popular pet lizard by virtue of it having more of a personality than most other lizards. Beardies are widely captive bred and their care requirements are easily established given the right information. Beardies come from very hot regions of Australia and like it hot. Beardies eat insects and plant material and are usually very hardy feeders.
