    Found this little dragon in Crows Nest National Park, SE QLD today. No more than 20 cm including tail from my judgement. I'm thinking a two lined dragon of sorts, maybe the eastern. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Given the well developed nuchal crest and veterbral crest plus a few other factors, my best guess is this is a juvenile Commom Nobbi Dragon (D. nobbi).

    Hi Ashley, it's an adult male Nobbi Dragon (Diporiphora/Amphibolurus nobbi).

    Thanks Bluetongue1 and Mitella, Nobbi Dragon looks spot on :)
