In Asian philosophy Dragons are the symbols of universal power. They are meant to swim in the unreachable depths or sore the unattainable heights. When a dragon is in the shallows it is a metaphor for wasted power. It is not living up to its full potential, so the little shrimps play with it. make fun of it. The shrimps know they can move around easily in the shallows while a dragon can not. The shrimps who will never swim so deep or fly so high as the dragon take advantage of this situation.

Do bearded dragons like to be in water?

"NO ! They are desert creatures ! The only water they need is for drinking."Actually, the answer above is incorrect. While bearded dragons are desert creatures they do like water in some cases. They should also be soaked in water that is shallow at least once a week. Never, EVER leave your Beardie unattended no matter how shallow the water is and never let the water level get higher than their back. Because some bearded dragons don't drink their own water while it is left in their enclosure, you give soak them to help hydrate them. Its also a good way to help them shed.
