Some of the topics covered include Bearded dragon care, anatomy, biology, the purchasing, handling and feeding of these animals.

Although The Advanced Bearded Dragon Manual is written with advanced topics and explanations, it is still written in simple plain English! I still wanted to make it easy and fun to read. It contains basic, understandable explanations, logically laid out or in step-by-step fashion.
The Advanced Bearded Dragon is currently available for a mere $32 (regular price U$36.00)
