My neighbor just informed me he lost his bearded dragon-he's about 3ft long..He thinks last he saw it was headed towards my house..Like i don't have enough creepy wildlife hanging around my house -now, i need to be on the lookout for a big lizard.. :(

How do you lose a lizard?

I can re-assure you he (the lizard) will not normally eat fish- however he might be found near the pond because they eat flying bug's that are usually found around pond's.........since ur neighbor has this lizard as a pet......im pretty sure the lizard would walk right up to a human an they are not dangerous their usually very docile .......good luck shug! i hope he finds lizard!!!

thanks for your insight..I feel a little better..

I have a bearded dragon and they don't have venom. Bacteria-wise there's more bacteria in a cat's mouth than a beardie's so you should be okay there too. Look for him in the direct sunlight, probably flat on a rock or sidewalk. They need heat on their belly to digest food so he'll eat bugs then lie flat on a hot rock.

Thanks for the info..I have zero experience with these animals..Are they normally aggressive?  Do they eat pond fish? I keep thinking i'm going to find him in or near my pond..

They won't eat anything bigger than the space between it's eyes, so probably it'll stick to bugs unless you have a mouse nest with babies nearby. They arenn't dangerous really, but they can run fast enough to scare the crap out of you if you see them unexpected. Otherwise, it's basically a big scaly hamster. Just put a laundry basket over it and call the owner.  I don't think it would go into the water. It's a reptile, not an amphibian.
