: Derek,

: I have never heard the name K. Is Dragon for Ctenophorus decresii.....in Australia we tend to use Tawny Dragon....in relation to the drab colour of the Females....In addition they are great little Dragons to keep. "Interesting"!


Source: A Complete Guide to the Scientific and Common Names of Reptiles and Amphibians of the World, by Norman Frank and Erica Ramus 1996, Copyright 1995. This reference only lists the original common name given by the discoverer of the species, and even though it might be somewhat out of date taxonomically, I find it to be most useful

: Is H. bruijnii a species from New Guinea...I am only familiar with H. boydii (In my opinion the most stunning Dragon ever) and the Southern Angle Heads.


I really don't know? Maybe WW or another subject matter expert could elaborate with regard to this particular Dragon species.

Cheers,

Derek K.

: Regards,

: Scott
