Bearded Dragon

INTRODUCTION

Bearded dragons are only naturally found in Australia’s desert regions. Generally they are found in the south-eastern Northern Territory and the eastern half of South Australia. Their habitats included woodlands, savannahs, and deserts. It is not uncommon to find them basking on branches, on stumps, or rocks during the morning there. The bearded dragon’s head is triangular shaped and contains rows of spikes that resemble thorns. Beneath their head, the bearded dragon will have rows of spiked scales which when puffed up resembles a beard. These scales can also change colour, turning darker, when breeding.
