Well the name is a bit of a giveaway. They are from the lizard family. They have a big triangle shaped head and a flat body. The have spines and scales arranged in rows along their body. The beard in their name comes from the cluster of spines on their throat and behind their head. If a bearded dragon gets spooked or frightened, the spiny beard becomes more visible. This is an evolutionary trick to warn off predators. But don’t worry. They’re not very sharp and the little guys won’t be scared of you.

These creatures have a few special moves that make them adorable. They often display a hand-waving gesture. Yes, you heard right. They wave! How cool is that? They’ll do this to show submission.
