    Male or Female Bearded Dragon?

    As some of you may remember my bearded dragon passed away last August. I'm thinking of getting a new one soon and was wondering if there is a big difference in behavior between male and female Bearded Dragons? Are males more aggressive and irritable than females? I had a female and she was always very relaxed and calm. Im looking at a1 reptiles because i want a german giant. any imput would be great, thanks!

    Get a male. That way you don't have to worry about eggs and all the trouble that goes with them.
    Let's clear something up. "Whole prey" has nothing to do with whether or not the prey item has a back bone. "Whole prey" just means that the prey item is being fed in its entirety: brains, heart, lungs, blood, the entire animal. Whole animal+intention of feeding it to another animal=Whole Prey.

    My male is a whole lot calmer than my female. This is the general consensus with most Bearded Dragon owners I know who've had both.

    I have a female and love her and her disposition! But I hate the thought about her having to deal with eggs and any problems that may come from them. I was hoping she was a he and always referred her as a he until proven otherwise. But wouldn't change her for anything.

    There is really no difference in behavior between my male and female.
    And except for early on when my wife put them together and a mating occured there have been no eggs.

    Most healthy female bearded dragons will lay eggs with or without the presence of a male... Of course, they won't be fertile unless she has been bred.

    And I'm saying "most" because there are extremely healthy females who are an exception to this rule.

    Yes I will probably order at that place because I want a german giant but was thinking about picking up a one year old male from my local pet store that the owner no longer wants. Decisions decisions.
