BLACK SOIL BEARDED DRAGON
also known as

Rankin's Bearded Dragon, Lawson's Dragon and Prairie Dragon

Pogona henrylawsoni
(

  Black-Soil Bearded Dragon Pogona henrylawsoni
I took this photo of an adult Black-Soil Bearded Dragon (Pogona henrylawsoni) years before the species was described. It was on display at Joe Bredl's original Reptile Park, which used to be next door to his house in Renmark, South Australia (The park was later relocated to the main highway, but is now permanently closed)

These juvenile Black-Soil Bearded Dragon (Pogona henrylawsoni) were photographed at the Reptile Jungle, UK

Black-Soil Bearded Dragon Pogona henrylawsoni
This juvenile Black-Soil Bearded Dragon (Pogona henrylawsoni) was one of the first to be kept on permit in South Australia.

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

In captivity the Black-Soil Bearded Dragon has been hybridised with the Inland 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.)
