What The?: Baby Bearded Dragon Waves Back To Owner

February 1, 2018

This is a super short video of a baby bearded dragon that appears to wave back to its owner. Is that really what it's doing? I mean there's no way, right? Is this computer graphics? This is computer graphics, right? Or maybe -- MAYBE -- somebody's been watching *putting on cool guy sunglasses* How To Train Your Dragon. "Enough with the cool guy shades." Stupid is all I know.

Keep going for the video which is the same as the gif just way clearer and more vertical.

Thanks to blue16, who agrees somebody is raising a very well mannered bearded dragon.

    How to make a cute animal video go viral:
    1- Watch your pet to see if they do something repeatedly (like slowly waving their arm)
    2- Start filming (vertically is fine, if you're an imbecile)
    3- Do the motion your pet did before they do it again, keep recording to capture them 'imitating' you
    4- Profit

    They actually do this to establish dominance. I saw a tank at Petsmart with a few in one tank. One was doing this non-stop to the others who didn't seem to care.

  • Meh.

    They do it for a variety of reasons, sometimes just to acknowledge that they see eachother.
    The one you saw doing that at a store might have been doing it either to keep itself safe from all the 'strange creatures' walking by or, because it saw it's reflection doing it.

    Headbobbing, that's dominance.

    Gasp!? I was lied to by the Petsmart employee!

  • Meh.

    We have 2 bearded dragons, we rarely see them wave at anything, but you bring another lizard near by and they don't like it? Beard turns black, they bob heads.

    If anything...I think it's admitting they're not dominant. The female we had used to wave, while the other one freaked out with head bobbing.

    ALL beardies wave. Amusing mainly for non-beardie owners!
