Bearded dragons are one of the most popular lizards in the USA. Since being introduced in the late 1980's, a variety of infectious diseases have been identified in them that pose problems for them in captivity. The purpose of this presentation is to review common infectious and parasitic diseases encountered in captive dragons.
