Boyd's Forest Dragon
The Boyd's forest dragon is only found in the rainforests of North Eastern Queensland, Australia.
They eat invertebrates such as earthworms, mealworms, locusts and crickets.
They are a territorial species – females will have smaller territories that overlap males. These lizards don’t bask in the sun, instead let their body temperature fluctuate with air temperature (thermoconforming rather than thermoregulating).
Adults are sexually dimorphic; males are larger than females with blocky heads. Around 1 to 6 eggs are laid in shallow nests and will hatch after three months.
This species is currently listed as being of Least Concern.
- Latin Name: Lophosaurus boydii
