Pogona is a genus of reptiles containing eight species, which are often known by the common name bearded dragons. The term "bearded dragon" is most commonly used to describe the central bearded dragon, (Pogona vitticeps).[citation needed] The name "bearded dragon" refers to the "beard" of the lizard, the underside of the throat which turns black if they are stressed or see a potential rival. Members of this genus live in the arid, rocky, semidesert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia.[citation needed] They are adept climbers, spending time on branches and in bushes and near human habitation. Pogona species bask on rocks and exposed branches in the mornings and afternoons. They are found throughout Australia.

Its a lovely little lizard with a lot of detail to it. Paint app does not resemble the most common (domestic) variants, but its not unheard of to have a lot of variation and even if I have never seen one with such patterns, I can not say there aren't. The pose is very dynamic which while looking nice, hurts versatility (and I have a weird pet peeve about the tail curling around to touch back foot pose).

scale is approximately 1:7.6
