Keeping this in consideration, can different species of skinks live together?
With the exception of two known species (Monkey Tail Skink, Shinglebacks), reptiles see other animals, even their own species, as competition; competition for food, space, heat, UVB, and hiding places. However, some species will tolerate each other's company pretty well.
Secondly, can you mix reptiles? With reptiles, it's not just a question of different species peacefully cohabiting. In nature, some male and female reptiles come together only to breed, spending the rest of their lives apart. Putting opposite-sex reptiles together 24-7 can mean trouble -- but so can same-sex cohabitation.
Keeping this in consideration, can bearded dragons live with other lizards?
Bearded dragons are solitary animals and shouldn´t even be kept with other bearded dragons. However, keeping them together with another species can sometimes work with a habitat that offers a lot of space and with a reptile species that has similar housing conditions as bearded dragons.
How many bearded dragons can live together?
No, each adult bearded dragon needs at least 40-55 gallons to itself, and even 40 gallons for an adult is not much. To house 2 adult bearded dragons, at least a 125-130 gallon tank would be necessary. That would be a bare minimum requirement to house 2 bearded dragons together.
