Grooming & Caring for Chinese Water Dragon

Care requirements for Chinese water dragons may seem intimidating by looking at the size of these exotic lizards. Now when you have decided to buy a water dragon, you will be pleased to know that these reptiles are very friendly and easy to handle. This however is possible only when you are aware of the technical details such as feeding and housing conditions of your new pet. Once you get familiar with the basic technical details, the care and maintenance of water dragons becomes really easy.

The only thing you need to consider is that your pet should never feel stressed. It is natural for your pet to show unfriendly behavior the first time it enters its new captive home. Chinese water dragons enjoy human interaction only when they get familiar with their new environment. You usually need to wait for a few days before you get a wonderful pet that is friendly and nonaggressive. This can be achieved in minimum time if you provide an environment that resembles the natural habitat of your pet.

If you are interested in keeping more than one dragon at the same time, it is better that you house them in different enclosures. It will be easier for you to monitor the ideal conditions for each of your pet and keep the dragons safe. Two mature male water dragons simply cannot stand each other and fight quite often. This can result in serious injuries or even death, so it is better that you keep them at a distance.
