'DID YOU KNOW THAT' the Australian, Central or Inland Bearded Dragon, is a species of agamid lizard occurring in a wide range of regions of  Australia?  Adults  can reach a total length of up to 60 cm (24 in), with the tail accounting for more than half.  The Bearded Dragon is native to the semi-arid woodland, arid woodland and rocky desert regions of Central Australia. They are skilled climbers and often spend just as much time perching on tree limbs, fence posts and in bushes as they do on the ground. Bearded dragons have been shown to be able to learn from watching the behaviour of other lizards. An experiment demonstrated that after one individual was trained to open a door to reach a food item, most other bearded dragons watching this action were able to perform it as well. The Bearded Dragon is diurnal and an omnivore. It forages for food such as insects, small lizards and mammals, fruit, flowers and other plant material during the day time.
