Most people round here tend not to trust shops for that exact reason (as well them spouting misinformation). Obviously I'm generalising here as not all shops are like that, but best to be a bit sceptical.

Beardy and leos tend to be housed in desert theme tanks... that's about it as far as similarity goes they have different temperatures, recommended heat sources are different, slightly different diet, different setup size, leos can survive without UVB lights etc etc.

These are good care sheets >

Try to get information from as many sources as possible though, don't take just one as gospel
