Just curious
 
Solution
There has to be excess skin in the neck/throat area for them to be able to puff out and display their signature beard. Without their "cheeks" (beards), they would just be... dragons.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
