Appearance: The bearded dragon’s head is triangular shaped and contains rows of spikes that resemble thorns. Beneath their head, the bearded dragon will have rows of spiked scales which when puffed up resembles a beard. The bearded dragon is supported by four stout legs and they have well-muscled flat bodies with a row of spikes that run down each side of the abdomen. Their tail is generally half the length of their body and unlike other lizards will not fall off and regenerate when threatened.
Behaviour: Some common behaviour traits that you can see in bearded dragons are arm waving, head bobbing, expanding their beard, digging in substrate and laying on top one another.
