Question
I have a male bearded dragon, and my brother wants one of his own. We already have a second tank so they definitely won't be living together. However, they may come in contact in the living room if we are holding them or they are roaming around. What I would like to know is if it would be better to get a male or female. Would getting a female make them less likely to fight?

Answer
Hello, less likely to fight? Probably not. If they will be making contact outside of their enclosures wheather male/male or male/female, just keep an eye on them. If you are both nearby and they start to quarrel with each other you both can be their to make sure nothing happens.

Expertise

I can answer every question towards the bearded dragon except for questions that deal with sickness and disease. I can answer questions on heating and UV rays, the questions pertaining to food, habitat, bedding, breeding, egg/hatchling care, nature, and attitude are my best. Last, I cannot help you with at home sickness meds, always find a vet within your area. I can answer questions regarding body language and movement. I will try to help you to the best of my ability.

Experience

I have owned bearded dragons for over seven years and have been a breeder for two years. Caring and raising bearded dragons has been a great experience in my life and will continue to play a big role throughout my life.
