Eastern Bearded Dragon

Pogona barbata

Description:

Took a walk in a different area of Belair, the vegetation is quiet different here, mostly Xanthorrhoeaceae sp. and Eucalypts, came across this Eastern Bearded Dragon, walked past it at first, only when I turned around did I see the bright yellow mouth. Don't know how I avoided stepping on it, probably gave it a fright which is why it flattened out and displayed it's mouth. It's still winter here, though today is pleasant around 17C, still seems a bit early

Habitat:

Xanthorrhoeaceae sp. and Eucalypts, adelaide hills

Notes:

The Eastern bearded dragon (Pogona barbata) is an agamid lizard found in wooded parts of Australia. It is one of a group of species known commonly as Bearded Dragons. They have an adult snout-tail length of about 24 inches (60 cm). When threatened, in addition to its beard display, it gapes to display the bright yellow colour of the inside of its mouth. They eat small lizards and snakes, flowers, insects, fruits, and berries.
