Dragon says "Bugger Off"
Beardies are usually a mid-grey, but they can change colour to suit the environment. They can't change like a chameleon, but they can change from very dark grey to pale yellows. They change to either manage heat absorption or to hide. When I picked up my dragon he'd been in dead grass for some time.
