Bearded Dragons

Bearded dragons, like their dragon namesakes, have an armor of protective scales and spikes along their sides and beards. Bearded dragons use their beard as a defense mechanism. When they are scared they open their mouths wide and puff out their beard which instantly turns jet black. This shocking sight gives predators a second thought about messing with this otherwise docile reptile.

Bearded dragons have THREE eyes

Yes, you read that right, bearded Dragons have three eyes! Their two primary eyes see images, just like our eyes. And their parietal eye, located on the top of their head, doesn’t see images but  is an optical lobe on the top of their head that can sense shadows and changes in light. In the wild, their main predator is a hawk. When a hawk swoops down to grab the Beardie, this animal can sense the change in light from the hawk’s shadow and run away. 

The silliest thing about bearded dragons is that they don’t run on their four legs but will run on their two hind legs just like people. This doesn't help them run faster, but instead helps them run further by allowing the air to cool their body as they run.

They love to ride on our shoulders

In the wild, Bearded Dragons are semi-arboreal and spend their days hanging out in bushes or trees. They like to be up high to search for bugs and see what’s going on around them. They also love being on warm surfaces. This makes their warm human friends a perfect vehicle to ride around on. Bearded dragons literally enjoy “hanging out” with us. Many owners will carry around their beardies on their shoulders while doing chores, watching TV and taking walks.
