Bearded Dragon

I love to go on walks

Bearded dragons get their name from their ability to puff or flare out the skin under their throats, which darkens their skin to a black color resembling a beard. This is a defense mechanism, making them look more threatening to predators and other animals. Bearded dragons can live more than 10 years with proper care. Many bearded dragons develop unique behaviors such as “waving” or bobbing their heads. These behaviors are most often observed when they are being territorial or during mating season. Bearded dragons are omnivores, consuming insects, vegetables and fruits. Bearded dragons use their short tongues to capture and eat crickets and worms. As well as eating natural foods, bearded dragons can be provided commercially produced diets sold in stores.

As omnivores, bearded dragons have a varied diet including, but not limited to, crickets, worms and vegetables. Adults can even eat small frozen, thawed rodents. Bearded dragons make great pets because they are easy to care for and have sociable personalities.
