While taking my ball python for a vet appointment, I was told that local Animal Control picked up a baby water dragon. I have always liked them, and am currently in the process of researching for another possible pet.

I intend to build a large enclosure, but I would start it out in a 10 or 20 gallon. How long could a baby water dragon be happy in a 20 gallon glass tank? (i.e. How much time do I have to build a large enclosure?)

I built an enclosure for my bearded dragon out of melamine with vents, a plexiglass sliding door, and oak framing the door. Would this work for a water dragon? Would the humidity on the melamine be a problem?

Lastly, I want some opinions, as I have read many different things; what do you believe is the ideal size enclosure for an adult water dragon? (Dimensions, please)





Thank you all! I am very excited and researching hard.
