Inland bearded dragons have an expandable throat pouch that is covered with spiny spikes to form a 'beard'.

It puffs out and turns black during mating or when showing aggression against an enemy.

A bearded dragon will sometimes wave one of its forelimbs in a circular pattern to signal submission to a larger dragon.

Bearded dragons bob their heads to show dominance or aggression.
