Rankins Dragon

Rankins Dragon

Very similar to the beardie but considerably smaller, the Rankin’s dragon (also known as Lawson’s or pygmy dragon) rarely exceeds 30cm (12″) in total length. In the wild they are found in the Queensland area of Australia, and were only recognised as a species in 1985, despite having been known to herpetologists for far longer.

We are working towards improving the welfare of every pet reptile, which is why our expectations are so much higher than those of some other retailers and breeders. You want a healthy, happy pet and we know that our beardie habitats are a great way to achieve that! Please read our article on minimum standards (see the link in the main description below) to see why our habitats are the most effective on the market.

Our animals are only available for collection in store. Speak to our care team, or visit us in-store to purchase your new pet.

Description

Please read about our minimum standards and why we use them – it’s really important!

Rankins Dragon Characteristics

Omnivorous like its larger cousin, they will take a wide range of foods both live and leafy. Whereas the bearded dragon is bold and confident from the moment it steps out of its egg, the Rankin’s is a little shyer and can take rather longer to settle into a new home. That said, once settled they are as friendly as a beardie, and just as rewarding a pet.
