For me I decided on the Bearded Dragon because I think a desert animal is easier to care for than a tropical animal. I didn't want to deal with big messy water areas for the water dragon. Also the beardie seems much calmer than most water dragons. JMO

CTC said it all. Unless you live in a tropical area or are willing to spend some money to make a good set-up raising dessert lizards is easier.

Beardeds are often reccomended for first time lizards. Another lizard also being reccomended that might be of interest to you is a crested gecko. I don't know much about them, but their was a good article in one of the more recent Reptile magazines.

Supply and demand. The prices for beardies the past several years have slowly been going down. It saddens me when I see a 3 inch newly hatched baby going for $29.99. This is the most delicate stage. If you get one, pay a bit extra for an older one. It is worth it!

I'm sure its not at apt now, but the fact Australia doesn't allow exports probably comes into play too. They were more expensive for quite a long time because only captive bred specimens were available.
