It is called "bearded" because of the dragon's ability to flare out the skin in the throat region when it is threatened or territorial.
They display a hand-waving gesture to show submission, and a head-bobbing display to show dominance between dragons. Although the Bearded Dragon is small, they can actually run up to 9pmh!
DID YOU KNOW? Bearded Dragons change the colour of their beard to show emotion. Orange means they are happy and black means they are very unhappy.
