Australian Bearded Dragon

Australian Bearded Dragon

From Wikipedia.org

Pogona is a genus of reptiles containing eight species, which are often known by the common name bearded dragons. The term “bearded dragon” is most commonly used to describe the central bearded dragon, (Pogona vitticeps). Members of this genus live in the arid, rocky, semidesert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia. They are adept climbers, spending time on branches and in bushes and near human habitation. Pogona species bask on rocks and exposed branches in the mornings and afternoons. They are found throughout Australia.[1]

Several species of this genus, especially the central bearded dragon, are often kept as pets or exhibited in zoos due to their hardy nature and easy care in comparison to other exotic reptiles.
