I am new to keeping water dragons. I have had iggies before but it has been awhile. Do water dragons require UV light? How hard are they to tame? My hubby is not super pet friendly but I would like a tame lizard so if he ever does want to pet it he won't get bit and it won't get slung across the room as a consequence. What is the best site to go to for info on water dragons and their upkeep? Help!!!!! :D

if you can afford i'd use a powersun with them, this is a combined heat source and uv light

Thanks for the help. I have heard about ceramic heaters. What are they and are they better then UVA/UVB bulbs? I want to get everything together before I bring TUO home (That is what i have decided to call my new baby) But I don't want to risk burning it. So which would be better? Creamic or UVA/UVB? :?:

with your ceramic make sure you have it on a thermostat to regulate the temperature. as well as that you'll need either a basking bulb and uv tube or a just a powersun
