ABout Bearded Dragon

To appear more intimidating, a dragon’s beard will inflate and turn dark. These reptiles may also keep their mouth open during the display to intimidate.

In an act of submission and species recognition, a dragon will stand on three legs and wave a forearm in a slow circular pattern.
