Bearded dragons need the sun alot because they are reptiles.Reptiles are cold blooded and cold blooded reptiles dont produce their own body heat unlike us, humans(humans are warm blooded so we dont need to stand in the sun all day like reptiles).So all reptiles including the Bearded dragon get their warmth from the sun.
