Agama Bearded Dragon behavior

The Bearded Dragon is a type of agamid lizard native to Australia.They are often mistaken for Horned Toads. The Bearded Dragon is quite docile and does not require much handling to become a docile pet. The most common subspecies of the Bearded Dragon is P.vitticeps, also known as the Yellow-Headed Bearded Dragon.

Bearded Dragons make their homes in semi-desert regions and open woodlands characterized by arid climates and rocky landscapes. While not arboreal, they are very good climbers and spend a lot of time in bushes and on branches or posts near humans. They enjoy warm temperatures and spend a lot of time on warm mornings and afternoons basking on rocks or branches. Bearded Dragons are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day. They eat both plants and animals, making them omnivores. They will eat almost anything they can catch, including invertebrates and small vertebrates such as mice. They also eat flowers, greens, and fruits. Bearded Dragons like many other animals that live in the desert, spend the hottest hours of the day underground in burrows and venture out again in the evening. Bearded Dragons, when threatened, flatten their bodies and try to make themselves appear broader. They also expose their 'beard,' a flaring of the throat, when threatened. They are social animals, making them entertaining in captivity. They use their tongue to explore their environment and young Beardeds, if they feel safe, will 'wave' to display non-aggression. Bearded Dragons live from 7 to 12 years on average, though some may live as long as 20 if they are well cared for.
