Why Does my Bearded Dragon's Beard Turn Black?

January 4th 2009 19:57

When in the wild, and in captivity (although, less comonly in captivity), a bearded dragon will show a variety of behaviors when he is threatened or mad.

You may notice that your bearded dragon's beard will turn black and his body may flatten out. These are definitely signs of a mad bearded dragon or one who feels threatened.

When the bearded dragon flattens his body, he's trying to make himself look larger than he is, and when he turns his beard black he's just trying to scare off any predator.

I have one bearded dragon that displays these behaviors every time I take her outside, but there are other instances in which your bearded dragon may display these behaviors. You may find that younger bearded dragons will display the behaviors more often than an older bearded dragon.
