When your bearded dragon inflates it's stomach what is it doing?
It feels threatened so it will make itself look bigger by doing that and when they make their throat black, that is to make them seem scary.

Bearded dragon lizards are native to Australia. They live in rocky and arid regions of the country and are adept climbers. Dragons have large triangular heads and flat bodies with pointed ridges along the sides. They are omnivorous, eating both insects and plants
Yes. An adult will shed its skin every 6-8 weeks.. A baby will shed throughout its growth cycle. Sometimes as often as every 2 weeks. It will also do an entire body shed. As they get older and their growth slows down the frequency will lessen. An adult will only shed a couple of times a year and it… will not usually be a full body shed, but different parts at a time.

The stomach is one of the principal organ in your digestive system. The stomach holds the swallowed food for up to four hours depending on the amount of food, churning it to a pulp and initiating digestion, then passes it on by degrees into the duodenum.
Male and Female beardies should not live together unless they are mating, but you can have two females living together. You can usually have many babies together. If the beardies start to fight do not let them be together!!! If you have an adult and a baby I recommend putting them in separate cages …that are near each other, but the beardies can see each other. If you do not want another cage you can put an adult and a baby together, but you should put something up in the cage so that the baby can have privacy from the adult. It is not okay if the adult hurts the baby on purpose. If that happens Separate them. (MORE)
There are no bones in a beardie's beard. The beard is a flap of skin that they fill with air to get their point across.
you dont have to have some sort of disorder or anything to inflate your stomach. just get a pump to inflate a basketball and lube the end of the needle with some vaseline. then gently stick the tube up your butt and start pumping gently and feel the air flow into your bowels. watch your belly inflat…e and stop when it hurts. then youll have to fart out the air.

They have small hairs on their chin (flot). Even though people say dragons are mystical, the Bible talks a lot about mystical creatures in revelation. Just thought I should say that>>>
No - since the dragon is a mythical creature. The Bearded Dragon got its name from its resemblance to the description of dragons in folklore.
Sperate them or if they are different sexes then they might want to mate also thats how they keep the other dragon in line and decide who is dominant
no it is not a relative of a dragon because dragouns arent real.it is a type of lizard
Two adult males will always fight for dominance and territory. A male will bite a female to dominte her during mating.
from air inflation up your butt, yah, so long as you didn't burst your intestine, that'll probably kill you, but yah youll fart the air out in time and eventually your stomach will shrink back down
why in the heck would you want to inflate your stomach? when you are giving cpr and its done the wrong way air is forced into your stomach and thats a bad thing so i believe you would inflate your stomach only for surgical needs... but dont quote me on that.
yes they commonly store food and gradually swallow it over half an hour. dont give them too much, they are perfectly capable of choking and dying.
Rubbing a bearded dragon on it's back is perfectly fine. Many reptiles enjoy being rubbed or petted.
because when cells do not have nutrition, they bloat. Starving children are so malnourished that their stomachs have bloated due to lack of nutrition.
There really isn't a purpose. They sometimes show their moods, with their beard though. If it is black, they are tryng to cool off, or if it's "Mating season" , they may act that way very often.
You're Beardie may be seriously injured or ill, I would take it to a vet!!! ASAP
Bearded Dragons eat crickets, mealworms, superworms, and pinkie mice. Mainly The younger ones like crickets. The older ones like mealworms, superworms, and pinkies. Dont feed them pinkies until they are older and can handle large food like that. oh and the person that typed this before me, you obvio…usly have no idea what you are talkin about......later on in a adults life they will loose interest in live food and go for plants like common fruits and vegetables for essential nutrition...so learn before you answer.......... I totally agree my dragon is 2 yrs old now and i find he eats more fruit and veg now rather than live foods... I do agree as mine likes more fruit and veg then live foods well until he tried to eat my finger LOL (MORE)
It simply means that you have a dominate male or female. The "beard" turns black as a sign to others. Its totally normal.
No, they do not eat each other. They only do when they are little. Sometimes you will find a bearded dragon with a missing toe because their brothers/sisters have bit them off.
are you sure its your female biting your other female? because males bite the the back of the females head when there trying to mate.
Bearded dragons have a beard for a defensive threat display. When threatened they puff up their beard, so that it comes out to make it look bigger. It also opens its mouth and hisses. The threat is rarely seen in captivity.
My bearded dragon has lumps for example in some parts of his tail it looks like his scales have been inflated in small patches and the same thing on his face please help?
it could be cancer. mine had one in her tail, but she turned out to be ok. take him to the vets asap, he could be in danger.
Adult bearded dragons are a average of 15 to 24 inches in length, while hatchlings are between 3 to 4 inches at birth. Hope I helped xx
it's a sign of submission! they are saying "hello i am a friendly dragon! please don't eat me!" :) hope this helps! Waving is also part of the build up to mating, during this time (along with other behaviours) the male will nod at the female who will wave in return.
you could get a bearded dragon from any good reptile shop etc there is one opening in town
It's used as a signal that the lizard is upset, or as a display during courtship.
normally the male has 2 visible bulges near the base of the tail or the slit. these are the hemepenes but a female has only one large bulge. you probably cant tell until they're about 6 months-1 year old anyway. And the males have bumps on their back legs and females don't.
Well, you can play with them. Overall, they might be a bit boring, because they like to bask in the sun. But you can walk them, play with them, stroke them, and feed them, and it is really fun. Answer sent in by: Brevityman
Breathe in deeply using your diaphragm not your chest / lungs. That's how we should be breathing anyway...
To inflate ur stomach you have to pump air in to it. One way is through the mouth or through the anus. Personally it is easier to go in through the anus. It although might hurt a bit but it goes away very shortly after it. I did do it it once and it hurt but it went away. Hope this helps.
Not by voice because they have no vocal chords - but they DO communicate through a complex system of arm waving, head bobbing and posturing.
When a bearded dragon gets scared, a pouch near the throat inflates and darkens, so as to intimidate the foe. They also look like small dragons. Also the beardie is showing off. My beardie looks at himself while he is sunbathing and just blows out his beard to show how strong or good he looks. He …loves me to talk to him when he does it. He is so funny ! (MORE)
They don't need them. I used to own a single bearded dragon and he was very happy with only human companionship.
I may not own one but I plan on getting one and i did research.I found out..YES a bigger bearded dragon will eat a smaller one if they are both males
beardies put their beard out sometimes to display aggression if there is another male or just something as simple as picking it up the wrong way. but the cool thing about beardies is that when it is about to rain out they can sense the drop in temperature and they stick their beards out but if you k…eep it is a cage or a terrarium they cant do this.

The term "Dragon" is largely used for any reptile of the Agamid family, including but not limited to water dragons, sailfin dragons, moutain horned dragons, etc. If this family of reptiles is what you mean by "dragon," then yes, Bearded Dragons are also Agamids. If you are referring to the kind t…hat flies and breaths fire, then no. (MORE)
Depends on the genders of the two.if they are both males then the larger one will most likely eat the smaller one.if the smaller is a female it is less likely to eat it.
after the years of having bearded dragons breeding them and stuff like that well what i think is that some bearded dragons have the own mood now mine bearded dragon well he thinks he is a human and he always wants to sleep on people and cuddle with people exception girl friend his name is bubbles i …have about 38 bearded dragon and some are mean some are nice and some are lazy and fastest I'm trying to tell u guys that they are help because they put you to the test and they are really fascinating and cool and if u bugs in your house you can collect them and feed them to your bearded dragon or take him out and get him to see it. They also really help with social skills as seeing how much u love for them i have had reptiles sense i was in 1st grade it started with fire belly toads and then snakes lizard turtles and other if you guys got any questions with bearded dragons and care for them let me know or with Chinese water dragons (MORE)
Sorry to dissapoint you but bearded dragans arnt real dragons. Dragons like midevildragons dont exist
flip them over.a male has little lumps on the bottom of its back legs and one larger lump close to the base of its tail.
When a bearded dragon puffs up it's stomach it usually means one of two things. First thing, which is the more common, is taking up heat. A beardie will always make itself as large as possible in order to take in as much heat as possible, which then allows it to survive longer when away from the …heat source. Secondly, the beardie can also use this as a defence mechanism, making itself look bigger and more intimidating in order to ward off any immediate threats toward it. If you own a bearded dragon then you will clearly know the difference between the two methods. (MORE)
It might not know that that's a bearded dragon. It is trying to be protectiv
It depends how warm your house is. if you keep it really warm, you should be able to keep it out for a long time, but remember, they are cold blooded so it is best to make sure they stay safe in their cage MOST of the time.
Yes, its very common so keep them separated until they are used to each other. Do this buy taking them both out regularly but separately. After they both recognize you as a friend then take them out together but one in each hand and if one of their beards get black, put them BOTH away and try again …the next day (MORE)
They get stressed and that makes the color change happen. Sometimes you will also see dark squigley lines on their belly.
Its an amazing experience, they are great and very cheap pets. They are easy and great first time pets but they are difficult to cuddle ð
Yes bearded dragons can get stomach aches due to: Eating mealworms, meal worms have hard exoskeletons with very little meat andcan make your bearded dragon constipated, Over feeding, orinteracting with your bearded dragon less than 2 hrs after he/shehas eaten, you have to allow your pet to bask for …at least 2 hrswhich allows them to properly digest their meal (also not to getpooped on ;) (MORE)
I haven't seen much fighting out of beardies but here's what I'veseen: it usually starts out with the head bobbing up and down andtheir beards turning black and puffing out, then some hissing maytake place and then they lunge at each other every so often tryingto bite and claw each other. It is some…times a stand off though. (MORE)
