Native to the Southeast Asian mainland and Indo-Australia the Water Dragons are imported to North America. Males typically reach three feet with the females slightly smaller. The Water Dragon males develop larger heads, jowls and crest on the back of the neck and their femoral pores somewhat larger when compared to the female.

Ensure you have a vet check your new animal for internal and external parasites as soon as possible. It will be helpful to have some fecal matter for your vet so he or she can check for internal or external parasites. Your vet will also check for hydration, nutritional stats and overall health.

Adult Water Dragons need rather large enclosures and a minimum suggested cage length of six feet long and two to three feet deep, by five to six feet tall. While there are many cages on the market, a custom made cage is always ideal. Unless you are certain that dragons are accurately sexed, you might be better off with just one – a female and male pair will likely get along, males and even two females may display aggression unless given lots of space in a very large enclosure.

Most people would equate the Iguana as a friendly lizard, however, the Chinese Water Dragon is much more friendly than the Iguana. They love being handled and actually require regular handling to prevent them from becoming aggressive. If a Chinese Water Dragon feels threatened or is scared, it may lash out by biting and whipping its tail. They are arboreal lizards, which mean they love to climb in plants, on trees and rocks. They are great swimmers and are happiest when they have a source of water to dip into.

Another great point to consider is that Chinese Water Dragons are known communal animals and tend to do better when kept in pairs or in groups. Owning multiple dragons doesn’t require much more work or money than owning a single one.

In addition to being excellent pets, the Chinese Water Dragon is native to the highland forests in East and South Asia as well as to the lowland, but more specifically, China and India. They love freshwater environments and can be found along the banks of freshwater lakes and streams in the wild.

Chinese Water Dragons are most active during the daylight hours (diurnal). They enjoy spending their days relaxing In plants and trees located near water where they sunbath and eat insects. If in a tree and they feel threatened, they will drop from a tree for safety and scatter or submerge themselves in water for up to twenty-five minutes. Creating an environment which mimics real-life settings are both good for camouflage and for the mental enrichment of your lizard.

Always consider a substrate that won’t cause impact if ingested. Sterilized potting soil, with a cover of sphagnum moss can be used as can a mix of peat, soil and sand, soil and cypress mulch, astroturf, or paper. Plenty of branches should be provided for basking and climbing. Some live plants of pothos, dracaena, hibiscus, ficus and staghorn ferns make a good addition.

Keep a fairly large container with water for your pet dragon. It will need to submerge at least half of it’s body height. A kitty litter box should do nicely. It’s suggested to remove and clean/disinfect the tub daily, especially if your pet uses it as a toilet. The humidity should be kept at around eighty percent. Mist the enclosure once or twice daily as needed. Potted live plants can help keep humidity up.

Heat temperatures are paramount for your Chinese Water Dragon and should be in the rage of 84-88 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basking spot of 90 degrees Fahrenheit. During the evening hours, the temperature can be dropped to 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to setup a temperature gradient and ensure you measure temperatures on both the cool and warm side. You can choose to use a combination of ceramic heat temperatures, basking lights, or under-tank heat pads. Also, a florescent fixture should be used in 12 hour on / 12 hour off cycles to simulate day and night.

As with any pet, your Chinese Water dragon will require a steady supply of mealworms, grasshoppers, waxworms, earthworms, locusts and small feeder fish. You can also feed them pinkie mice and kingworms. Avoid feeding wild insects due to the risk of containing pesticides and at all costs avoid fireflies as they are toxic. Ensure that your pet takes in a diet of about fifteen percent of finely chopped vegetables and fruit. Try a variety of vegetables such as carrots, orange squash, sweet potato, etc. Fruits should be made available in smaller quantities and can contain raspberries, mangos and cantaloupe.

Younglings should be fed daily, while as a general rule adults can be fed every two or three days. Looking at their body mass tells you if they should be fed more or less.
