The area around Wodgina provides a number of habitats for dragons. One species would occur on or near the rocks, while a different one would occur on the sandy plains below, often within metres of each other.
The sandy soil loving Central Military Dragon (Ctenophorus isolepis).
The rocky soil loving Ring-tailed Dragon (Ctenophorus caudicinctus).
A dragon that loves eucalypt-lined river systems in the Pilbara is the Long-nosed Dragon (Amphibolurus longirostris).
Easy to identify with that long nose and super-white lip.
This is one lucky dragon, a Dwarf Bearded Dragon (Pogona minor), who was almost a pancake. You can see he's sitting on our tyre track from the way in and almost got run over when we were coming out.
He (or she) wasn't going to move.
Wonderful face patterns, including a strong ring-like structure I haven't seen before.
A nicely shaped head with great scales. You can see the pale Parietal Eye in the centre. For more info about the eye, see http://wazoologist.blogspot.com/2010/06/wodgina-varanids.html
