5 Interesting Facts About Central Bearded Dragons

Central Bearded Dragon

Here is a central bearded dragon showing off its spiky beard

Last year, my class had spiny leaf insects to look after which was cool, but this year, we have a central bearded dragon which is even cooler.

Here are five interesting facts about them:

  1. These cute little lizards can grow up to 60 cm long, half of which is their tail.  They look scary, but they are actually quite calm and friendly.
  2. Central bearded dragons are omnivores, mainly eating fruit, leaves, ants and other insects.
  3. They are excellent climbers and will often climb trees and fences to help them bask in the sun and keep an eye out for predators, food or potential mates.
  4. They have spikes around their throat that they push out when they feel threatened, making the beard that gives them their name.  They also inflate their body with air to make themselves look bigger.
  5. Central bearded dragons are found in the very dry areas of central Australia where they are a common sight.

I hope that you found these facts interesting and learned something new.
