Witblit bearded dragon Although several other species are becoming available to the pet trade, the most commonly available variety is the central or inland bearded dragon, Pogona vitticeps. This species is native to arid, rocky areas of Australia, and is typically tan/brown in coloration (but several color morphs are also available). Their bearded name is derived from the spines that line their throats. These spines usually lie flat but if the dragon feels threatened, the throat is expanded causing the spines to stand up and making the dragon look like they have a beard and more intimidating (especially combined with their tendency to flatten their bodies to appear wider). However, bearded dragons are generally docile and their aggressive displays are rarely seen in captivity which makes them very popular pet reptiles.
