Juvenile

Also referred to as Pogona brevis or Pogona rankini this species is sometimes seen in the pet trade and has a similar temperament to an Inland Bearded Dragon but is much smaller and occurs in central Queensland
other common names are the Rankin's Bearded Dragon, Lawson's Dragon and Prairie Dragon.

 

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