I have been bit by dogs & horses (fairly regularly) before so I don't think a bite from a beardie would be all that bad for me.
I have seen them in Petco & places like that & would LOVE to own one ... At least he would be "technically" easier to transport when moving around to the different tracks, more so then a dog or cat . But I have some (ok ... A lot) of questions:
How long do they live? What do they eat? How hard/what is their care when compared to other lizards/ reptiles? I have also been told that they are a good first time reptile for those who have never use one before
