The Jacky lizard above which was photographed at Scheyville National Park, NSW is in a cryptic position.... it froze and allowed us to photograph it without running away. Note that rows of spines along the body are visible in this photograph.

The Jacky Lizard or Jacky Dragon is a very common species found in Eastern and South Eastern Australia. It is often seen perching on fence posts and trees. It may be confused with many other species of Dragon lizards (Agamas) including the Mallee Heath Lashtail Dragon (Amphibolurus norrisi) the Nobbi Dragon Diporiphora (was Amphibolurus) nobbi the MOUNTAIN (HEATH) DRAGON Rankinia (was Tympanocryptis) diemensis and juvenile Common or Eastern Bearded Dragon Pogona barbata

The Jacky Lizard normally has a bright yellow mouth lining, however my long term (captive bred) Jacky Lizards had pink mouth linings.
