The Bearded Dragon has a low wide body shape which allows it to hug surfaces when it is lying down. When walking, however, it walks with a high gait and can move with considerable speed. You may catch a glimpse of these sun-loving dragons on the side of an outback highway, or patrolling for insects in a woodland clearing. Like other species of dragon, this lizard relies on more bluff than bite; trying to appear larger and spikier than it really is to any potential predator.
