One of my house mates got some bearded dragons as pets! We decided to do a photo shoot with these lovely animals. She named them Danaerys and Uncle Iroh after a television show she is watching. I haven’t watched the show so I nicknamed them Dina and Uncle.
There are six species of bearded dragons (Pogona spp.), all endemic to Australia. This species, the central bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps) is a popular pet and zoo animal.
Bearded dragons can moderately change their colour. Uncle here is spectacularly orange, but other colours have been observed. The beard of a dominant male often turns black.
Uncle is very dominant…he bobs his head rapidly and chases Dina around the cage.
They are great pets!
