A curious video has emerged of a friendly bearded dragon responding to human wave by waving back. This polite lizard took the Internet by storm when it enthusiastically greeted back at his human.

This unbelievably adorable moment was captured on camera featuring a cute reptile chilling in its aquarium tank when a human greets it with a wave. Moments later, the lizard approaches the glass and performs a hand gesture similar to a wave. Did this reptile just wave back at the camera or are we imagining things? Nope. He did, he most definitely did! And then he did it again!

This incredible video was uploaded on the Internet and has more than 10 million views on Twitter. Twitter users were amazed by the smartness of the reptile and retweeted the tweet close to 2,50,000 times.

Watch as the curious lizard gazes at the human before waving back at him. Twice!

At first sight, this lizard appears to be ignorant of his owner’s waving, chiling behind the glass of a terrarium. However, this polite reptile is only calculating its moves, and soon after, comes closer to the glass, stares at the camera, and surprisingly, waves back at owner!

Amazingly, this pet returns the gesture by moving to a perch and waving back, with a royal wave! Cuteness overload!

However, experts stress that arm waving is a very common behaviour displayed by baby and juvenile bearded dragons. The bearded dragon can suddenly raise a front limb and rapidly wave it above its head. This behaviour can be very amusing, because it appears that the reptile is waving and greeting like the Pope does!
