Pogona barbata — Eastern Bearded Dragon
Some other names for this species:
Common Bearded Dragon
This morning my wife and I took a boat trip on Moreton Bay from Redcliffe, hoping to see dugongs. We saw no dugongs, but we saw some dolphins and loggerhead turtles. Before the boat trip we meandered around Redcliffe where we spotted this young (on the rocks) and mature (on the back of the tree) Eastern Bearded Dragons. I didn't have my camera with me but Monica had her little digital Elph. The adult dragon was behind a fence as well as being behind a tree, so I couldn't get a decent picture.
Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Australia.
