Bearded Dragon Lizard By Brant Species: Reptile
Physical Characteristics The average Bearded Dragon Lizard is about two feet long and weighs 10 to 18 ounces. Their coloring ranges anywhere from a tan brown to a dusty yellow.
The Bearded Dragon Lizard lives in all parts of Australia. They travel by walking to wherever they need to go. When the seasons change to the winter, they don’t migrate or hibernate. Habitat
Food Bearded Dragon Lizards are omnivores, so they eat a variety of foods including strawberries, apples, carrots, spiders, flies and an occasional small rodent.
Protection To scare away predators, a Bearded Dragon Lizard flattens its body, puffs up its “beard,” and stands still with its mouth open. Also, the spikes along their sides are completely harmless. They are meant to look like they are very sharp to help protect themselves from predators.
Unique characteristics The young of the Bearded Dragon Lizard are born in eggs. There are usually 15 to 50 eggs. When the young hatch they are called juveniles.
Problems It Faces Very fortunately, unlike many other native Australian animals, it is not an endangered species, or even a threatened species, and it thrives in its habitat. They are not endangered because a lot of predators of the Bearded Dragon Lizard are being wiped out by imported animals.
Conclusion I am now very happy that I chose to research the Bearded Dragon Lizard. At the beginning of the project I didn’t like Bearded Dragons that much, but now I like them quite a lot. The only thing I don’t like about them is when they get mad they aren’t that friendly.
