    housing a bearded dragon in same room

    hello,
    i have heard that it is not safe to put guinea pigs and rabbits in the same room because they share the same germs and stuff, so i thought i would ask. Is it safe to house a bearded dragon in the same room as my two guinea pigs? I am pet sitting the dragon for a few days

    As long as they don't ever actually come into contact with each other, I don't see why not. But I don't know much about bearded dragons, so I'm not sure.

    You should be fine, as long as the bearded dragon doesn't come in contact with your piggies I don't see much of a problem.

    @Inle_Rabbit may be able to help, she has a rabbit and pigs and probably knows more about the bacteria issues like pasteurella and bordetella etc than most others do.

    (So in turn, that information could help you figure out if there's any bacteria issues with the dragon)

    I think you will be fine doing that. We have our guinea pigs in the same room as my husband's snake.
