Dragon Lizards of Australia
Australian dragons include some of our most iconic and best known lizards – the
spectacular Frill-necked lizard, the strange prickly Thorny Devil and the bearded
dragons, popular as pets worldwide. More than 100 species live across Australia,
from the high plains of the Tasmanian wilderness, across the vast red sands of the
arid interior to the lush rainforests and monsoonal savannahs of the northern tropics.
Dragons exhibit remarkable variety in colour, shape and behaviour. Adorned with
a spectacular array of crests, spines, and frills, they use head-bobs, hand-waves,
push-ups and even colour changes to communicate – they do it all!
In this book the authors shed light on Australia’s dragons. They convey their
admiration for these amazing animals and share the knowledge and experience
gained from working with them. The book includes our most recent understanding
of their origins, life history, ecology, distribution and conservation. Each of the
species are accompanied by descriptive text, images and a distribution map.
Dragon Lizards of Australia is part of Museums Victoria Publishing field guide series.
