Reptile Rescue Coordinator, Mid-Atlantic Reptile Show (MARS)
I have owned reptiles, and lots of other pets, for many years. I got my first turtle when I was in elementary school. As a child I was deathly afraid of snakes, but that all changed about 15 years ago. Now I run the Mid-Atlantic Reptile Show (MARS) and the MARS Reptile & Amphibian Rescue.

Holli Friedland: I am Holli Friedland, Program Director of the Mid-Atlantic Reptile Show and this is How to Care for a Bearded Dragon. We're going to talk about what you are going to need to care for a bearded dragon, How to setup the enclosure, How to handle the bearded dragon, Choosing a Bearded Dragon, feeding your bearded dragon, and how to deal with problems. We are going to need several tools but we'll talk about that when we setup the enclosure for the bearded dragon. Anything with a mouth can bite so you have to always be careful when you are dealing with wild animals. Also all reptiles can carry salmonella, you should always wash your hands after you handle any reptile. And if you can't wash your hands, you should use anti-bacterial gel and then wash your hands when you get a chance. I've been with the Mid-Atlantic Reptile Show for 13 years and I run the MARS Reptile & Amphibian Rescue. I have been doing that for about 10 years. So let's get started. First we are going to talk about, how to choose that if a Bearded Dragon is the right pet for you.
