You'll need a heat lamp, crickets, calcium supplement to sprinkle on their food, a log or cave for him to hide in, and a water dish that is big enough for him to fit all of or most of his body in(this helps when he's shedding). I would suggest getting a cricket keeper because then you can purchase a bag of crickets and put them in the keeper to lenghten the amount of time they live. I buy crickets about every week for two lizards so it depends on how much you feed your beardie. Good luck, Bearded dragons are amazing pets! I got my bearded dragon for Christmas last year, and he is such a delight to have!

Buy one of those little books from PetCo about Bearded dragons. i learned the hard way, now everytime I get a pet like a hamster or a new breed of something, I buy one of those books because there is always something to learn from them. Like how their digestion only works when they are warm, so say you feed the bearded dragon when it is warm and then the electricity goes off for some reason then the pet can die if it is digesting its food and it get cold. There are so many things to know.
