What are the best vivariums for bearded dragons?

Choosing the right vivarium for your bearded dragon can seem like a challenge, but it’s easy to narrow down your options. 

VivExotic, Exo Terra and Pro Reptile are the most popular vivarium brands for bearded dragons and their tanks and terrariums are widely available on sites like Amazon and Pets at Home. 

Wooden vivariums with a sliding glass door are the most popular choice of tank and as a rule of thumb, a 4ft x 2ft x 2ft vivarium is the right size for an adult bearded dragon. Your bearded dragon should ideally live alone but if you need to house multiple bearded dragons, you can invest in a vivarium stack.

Vivarium Lighting


Bearded dragons need UVA and UVB light to stay healthy. For this you’ll need a UVA/UVB light to mimic the 12-14 hours of natural sunlight they’d get in the wild.
