Agama Frilled Dragon Health Information

An adult Frilled Dragon is far too large to house comfortably in a standard terrarium, so be prepared to purchase a cvostly custom terrarium or enclosure or to build one yourself. Males should be kept separated. Frilled Dragons love to climb and in captivity, this should be accommodated. Climbing branches will work well inside their housing. These branches should be of the same thickness as the lizard or thicker, to be sure that it will support their weight. Frilled Dragons should be exposed to full spectrum UV lighting for about 13 hours a day. Place a water dish in the cage and keep the basking temperature in between 90 and 95 degrees, misting often to keep humidity levels stable. Keep the temperature in between 80 and 85 degrees during the day and above 70 degrees at night. They can be fed insects, fish or shrimp, canned reptile food(for carnivorous reptiles), small mammals, and cooked eggs. Ideally, food items should always be dusted with a calcium supplement. A multivitamin supplement is recommended about twice a week for adults and every feeding for juveniles. If feeding a commercial reptile food, it may be best to avoid adding a supplement to this food, as it often contains appropriate amounts of vitamins and minerals already, and too much of a vitamin can be just as bad for your lizard as too little. Some Frilleds are finicky and seemingly become bored with certain food items if their diet is not varied enough.
and Propagation: Relative Breeding Ease: Uncertain
Hatchlings are 5 inches long and weigh approximately 3 to 5 grams. As juveniles, they are difficult to sex. They grow fairly quickly and may be as long as 16 to 18 inches within the first year. Most will live about 15 years in captivity.
