the hot ground and improves airflow around them. This could enable them
to run farther before having to stop. Bearded dragons, especially the young
ones are semi-arboreal, and pay a lot of time in trees in the wild. Even the
adults prefer to climb. Perching and basking below the sun is the favourite

lighter colors mirror more lightweight off from the body. This will also be
used to show an emotional state, and when ill or injured they usually have
black back and pale yellow legs. Despite this, the animals will try to cover
illness till it becomes serious, probably as a survival mechanism.
