Bearded Dragons come from Australia, fully grown they can measure 600mm.

They are omniverous, and eat many types of insects, small vertebrates, and vegetation including fruits and flowers.
When threatened, they flatten their bodies and stand erect with mouth gaping. The light-colored mouth lining, spines bordering the lower jaw and puffed-out blackish beard make many predators think twice.
If this doen't work the bearded dragon will raise itself on its hind legs and run away.

This one is called Spyro and belongs to Tom who feeds it on Black Crickets, Locusts and a variety of vegetables, of which his favorites seem to be carrots and fine beans.
