Australian Frilled Dragon
We have a variety of reptilian species that board with us here at Fauna. Recently we had the unique opportunity to have stay with us this AUSTRALIAN FRILLED DRAGON. This species is really fascinating with its large frill around it neck. When these animals display their characteristic frill most of us have flashbacks of the misrepresented ‘Dilophosaurus’ in Jurassic Park. While they are not venom spitting dinosaurs, Frilled Dragons do grow to be a little too large for most apartment dwellers, and are typically quite skittish and difficult to handle. This particular dragon was handled with great care by his owner while he was young and is very tolerant of being handled and actually seems to enjoy the contact. We don’t normally recommend Frilled Dragons as pets because they are so skittish. We applaud this owner for taking so much time to work with his pet!
