The bearded dragon lives up to its name: Like a dragon, it’s equipped with armor of spiny reptilian scales , which include a “beard” of spikes under its chin that puffs up depending on its mood. Among the most popular pet reptiles, bearded dragons tend to be gentle, inquisitive, and active during the day.
In the wild, bearded dragons’ range extends across most of Australia. They typically prefer to stick to warm, arid areas: deserts, subtropical woodlands, savannas, and scrublands. In the 1960s, Australia banned the export of wild bearded dragons; however, they’ve been bred in captivity for decades for the pet trade, and they come in a variety of color “morphs” not commonly found in the wild.
