Bearded Dragons can generally become accustomed to being handled very easily. When they feel threatened they will puff up their throat to scare off its predators. The Bearded Dragon is active during the day, making them diurnal. They are naturally found in the desert, so this lizard enjoys spending alot of time basking in the sun.
