Bearded Dragon

On our almost 300 km dirt road drive from Arkaroola to Yunta we passed several lizards basking on the side of the road. When we stopped the car, this guy didn't run away, but rather posed for a picture.
This species of lizard is named Bearded Dragon because of the beard like, spiky scales, found on the underside of their head.  The Bearded Dragon can only be found in the wild in Australia.  They are omnivores and can grow to be between 12 to 24 inches in length.  They vary in color, depending on the color of the soil in the region in which they live in.
