Contents

Below is a list of a few different types of bearded dragons and a few bearded dragon morphs that are available in today’s pet market. Bearded Dragons are low maintenance lizards, so if you’re looking for a pet lizard, this may be the right choice for you. Have in mind, some of these may be under $100 while others may range to the $1,000’s. The more rare and exotic the morph, color, and pattern is, the higher the price will be.

Hypo Bearded Dragons

A hypo bearded dragon will appear lighter in appearance than your average dark colored bearded dragon. The way to get a hypo bearded dragon is to mate two bearded dragons with hypomelanism traits. Normally, you will see a lighter appearance in nails, skin, and eyes.

Silkback Bearded Dragons

A silkback bearded dragon is one which has a complete absence of scales. Their skin is very smooth and soft to the touch. Care for a silkback bearded dragon is a lot more delicate than other bearded dragon morphs as their skin requires additional care in regards to UV lighting and shedding.

German Giant Bearded Dragon

The name says it all. The German giant bearded dragon is an oversized bearded dragon, reaching a possible length of 30″ and weight of 1000 grams. The German Giants were brought in from Germany by Pete Weiss. Today, it is believed that true “German Giants” have been bred out of existence due to the dilution of bloodlines from breeding with normal vitticeps to increase their hardiness. (Joselyn Rhodes) However, this theory is not yet proven, and there may still may be true German Giants out there being reproduced and sold.
