INTERIOR BEARDED DRAGON Pogona vitticeps Ahl, 1926
This 45 cm lizard is very similar to the Common Bearded Dragon Pogona barbatus from which it can be distinguished by its' more robust body and the configuration of spines on the head and body. It often has a reddish tinge to its body colour, particularly around the eye. This species is usually seen basking on fence-posts when driving along roads in areas where it occurs. Specimens are most visible in the months of September/October, when daytime temperatures seem to be most conductive to activity by this species. Feeds on insects and flowers, and lays about 20 eggs in spring or summer.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
