    Jacky dragon, very common there. Typical patterning from that area

    Indeed they are, lots of personality in the wild ones. Apparently they are fairly common in captivity, I would like to own some someday

    We saw what I think was also a Jacky Dragon back in January when we went bushwalking up at the Central Coast. Can anyone confirm this is a Jacky too? Interesting to see the different patterns to the one you saw in Batemans Bay.

    Yep they are a highly variable species! [MENTION=42155]alichamp[/MENTION] yes that is certainly a jacky! I have a property near Bawley Point and they are everywhere along the South Coast. Once I went for a Geography field trip to Broulee and they were there in plague proportions (more common than garden skinks)! They were a good chance to practice my photography, I'll try to get some pics up later

    The difference in pattern in this case is gender based. The first photo is of a female and the second of a male.

    Jacky dragons are great, love running around the grampians and seeing these funny little buggers running around, they have quite interesting funny little personalities and are quite cute
