Juvenile

This species is regularly seen in the pet trade and has a similar temperament to an Inland Bearded Dragon but is much smaller and occurs in central Queensland.

In captivity the Black-Soil Bearded Dragon has been hybridised with theInland Bearded Dragon to produce what has been called a Vittikin Dragon. The hybrids are claimed to be fertile. (Note that hybridising reptiles is illegal in some states of Australia.)
