Like the subject title. What are they for? You know, these. The black spots on the shoulders.

I know they are natural but it is freaking me out not knowing what they are used for. So any guesses or answers would be great! :D Thanks in advance.

Bigger shoulder pads means a larger presence. It presents wealth, class, and some very handsome shoulders. Young women dragons have started donning these pads in hopes of matching up to male dragons in the beard-eat-beard world of the Superworm Exchange. Investing in colonies, building up an economy - things female dragons could never hope to achieve before these times. The shoulder pads are representative of a feminist bearded movement. You don't need to be a man to work for your food. It shows the women are not fearful, and can command just as well as any man! Gone are the days of the women basking at home making salads. They're out in the world, doing the same things as the men and taking charge of their future!

The question reminded me of 80's and 90's powersuits, with the huge shoulder pads for women. I have no idea what they're actually for. Most likely for display purposes.

Very funny esn. :lol: So I guess no one knows what they are for? I thought that maybe they were for mating. Because they are little flaps of skin that are darker than the rest of the body. And when I fiddled with one Nim closed his eyes in pleasure. So maybe why they are dark flaps is because the male holds onto that to mate the female. And they need to be dark for the bearded dragon to see them. So, has anyone studied dragon mating and have seen these shoulder pads used for that?

You got to be kidding me. This is a bearded dragon forum, and nobody knows what the heck shoulder pads are for? I'll stick with something to hold onto for mating. That is the only possible answer that exists.
