Origin– They originated in the arid, rocky, semi desert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia.

Family– Agamidae.

Lifespan– 7-10 years.

Diet– Omnivores. In the wild they eat small lizards, insects, mammals, flowers and fruit. In captivity they are fed crickets, mealworms, fruit and vegetables.

Description– Dragons are mainly grey in colour with some variations towards orange, fawn, brown and black. They can grow from 13-24 inches in length. Dragons regulate their temperature through subtle changes in colour shade, from light to dark becoming darker in cooler weather. They are calm and friendly in nature along with the relative ease of caring from them.

Gestation– A female can lay around 20-30 eggs, they must be incubated at 27-29°C and will hatch after 60-70 days. They are only bred in captivity as exporting them out of Australia is illegal
