The bearded dragon gets its name from a particular characteristic: under the chin it has some thorns (fat reserves) that remind a beard. The colour is brown-yellowish in order to be better mistaken in the desert. It can reach the length of 60cm and is usually of very peaceful disposition.
Distribution: it is endemic to the Australian rocky deserts.
Feeding: usually, these reptiles, are omnivorous. It is estimated that young people tend to be mostly insectivorous to acquire protein, and tend to become herbivores as adults.
