These Spiked Lizards Can Often Be Found Lounging on Tree Branches

These spiked lizards can often be found lounging on tree branches or basking on rocks.This basking behaviour helps them regulate their temperature and also lets them absorb the suns UV rays which helps them grow healthy bones! The name "Bearded Dragon" comes from a flap under their chin that opens off when they are trying to scare off predators or defend their territory.
