Hi there, I'm a reptile owner from the US. I've owned dragons for several years but never figured out how to tell the difference between these two breeds. I have two females, the older 7 1/2, and the younger approx 3 years (a rescue, so I do not know her exact age, only that she was a young adult when I adopted her).

The older one is on the left in both photos (Tempest), with the younger, Spark, on the right.
I heard there was a spike formation on their heads that helps with telling the difference in species - I was not able to find references for examples of this, so I could not confirm their species myself.

They're Central Bearded Dragons (Pogona vitticeps).

You can tell by the colour they are centrals, easterns are usually grey
