Discover the Different Types of Bearded Dragon Colors

Bearded dragons, scientifically known as Pogona vitticeps, exhibit a wide range of colors and patterns. While there are several morphs or selectively bred variations, here are some common colors and patterns you may find in bearded dragons:

1. Normal/Wild Type:

The normal or wild type bearded dragon typically has a base color of tan to brown, with dark brown or black markings. They may have patterns such as stripes or bars across their bodies.

2. Citrus:

Citrus bearded dragons display vibrant colors in shades of yellow, orange, and sometimes red. Their coloration can be intense and may cover their entire body.

3. Hypo:

Hypo bearded dragons have reduced melanin pigmentation, resulting in lighter and pastel-like colors. They may exhibit lighter shades of tan, yellow, or orange, and often have reduced dark markings.

4. Translucent:

Translucent bearded dragons possess a semi-transparent or translucent appearance. Their scales may appear thinner and have a slightly see-through quality.

5. Leatherback:

Leatherback bearded dragons have reduced or absent scales, giving them a smoother and “leathery” appearance. The scales are thinner, softer, and less pronounced compared to other variations.

6. Witblits:

Witblits bearded dragons display a pale or white coloration, particularly on their heads and bodies. They often have bright red or pink eyes.

7. Dunner:

Dunner bearded dragons exhibit a unique scale pattern characterized by banded or “pin-stripe” markings along their bodies. These markings can vary in color and intensity.

These are just a few examples of the various colorations and patterns you may find in bearded dragons. It’s important to note that individual bearded dragons can have unique variations and combinations of colors, making each one a unique and beautiful companion. When selecting a bearded dragon, consider the specific morph or coloration that appeals to you, and ensure you provide appropriate care to meet their needs.
