Are you sure you really want a male and female? If you end up with male and female (and it is really difficult to tell the sex until they are adult) then they will breed. And breed. And breed. Which will leave you having to bring up babies after babies at horrendous expense and will shorten the miserable life of the female. Beardie mating isn't romantic, and she'll get pulled about and bitten while they're at it.

People who want to breed usually keep their beardies in two separate 4ft vivs.

Beardies are solitary creatures in the wild, and don't need company. They only come together to mate. Two males will fight, and two females may get on, but no guarantee.

If you just want them as pets, get one. You will bond with it easier, and won't always have to be on the look out for bullying and intimidation, or having it in the back of your mind you might have to part with one, or buy another viv.

Welcome to the forum - sorry about the lecture, but best you know what you might be getting into!
