Latin Name: Pagona Vitticeps
Bearded Dragons acquired the name from their distinctive throat, which can be flared out to make them appear larger than they are.
Bearded Dragons are lizards that are of moderate size, that have a good temperament and are relatively easy to tame. They are particularly sociable reptiles which interact with one another using a range of body gestures including body tilts, different tail and head postures, head bobs, arm circling, together with other more subtle movements as well with humans that they have become accustomed to. The signature body language of the Bearded Dragon is the flaring of it's throat or 'beard', used to deter perceived threats and as a display to mature females.
