Are Bearded Dragons Venomous?

No, bearded dragons (Pogona spp.) are not venomous. They are popular pet reptiles native to Australia. Bearded dragons are known for their unique appearance, including the spiky “beard” under their chin, which they can puff up to appear larger or as a defensive display. While they have sharp teeth, they do not possess venom glands or venomous capabilities. Bearded dragons are generally considered harmless to humans. However, it’s important to handle them gently and practice good hygiene to avoid any potential risks, such as bacterial infections or bites.
