Hi there, i bought these two bearded dragons sold to me as (Eastern), but the female seems to look a lot different than the male, she has a longer snout, longer toes and longer legs, is it just because she is a female, or is she a different type of bearded dragon?

Hi there stompa, going from the photos your male is a Central Bearded Dragon (Pogona vitticeps) judging by the very triangular head shape and bright colouration while your female is an Eastern Bearded Dragon (Pogona barbata) because of the much more elongated head shape and greyer coloration, if they are the same age she should be bigger to as Eastern's generally grow to a larger size then centrals.

I'm no expert, but the female looks like the eastern... whereas the male is a central?

From the pics i would say The male is a central for sure and the female looks like an eastern but can't tell for sure from the picture provided.

If they're two different species, as seems to be the case, then they shouldn't be paired or allowed to produce offspring.

No worries, will be separating them now, it is a shame that he said they were paired and ready to breed. :(
