A diurnal group of lizards with over 70 species in Australia. They are characterised by their upright posture & small, rough, non glossy body scales. Limbs are well developed with the hind limbs usually significantly longer. All Australian dragons are oviparous and mainly terrestrial. Notable dragon species in Australia include the Thorny Devil which as the name suggests, are covered in thorns and the Frilled Lizard that stands on its hind legs, opens its mouth, and extends a flap of red and orange scaled skin that encircles its head.
