Inland Bearded Dragon

Pogona vitticeps

Bearded dragons are lizards and are closely related to agamas and water dragons. There are 7 species, all found in Australia.



Size: Around 60cm
Weight: 250-500g



Bearded dragons are found in the semi-desert and dry woodlands of central Australia.



Bearded dragons are omnivores (eat meat & vegetation), eating mainly invertebrates when they are younger, but more plant material as they grow.



The eggs are laid in a shallow nest dug in the sand. They are then left unattended and hatch around 3 months later with the young having to fend for themselves.



The numbers of inland bearded dragons has not been evaluated by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), but they are not believed to be endangered in the wild.
