Afternoon Bask

As Spring arrives in Australia, and the days become warmer, Eastern Bearded Dragons (Pogona barbata) become more active, and can be seen basking. Coming out of Winter very lean, with fat stores in their tails and legs, these ectothermic lizards will be taking advantage of the warmer days and be trying to build up some weight before mating season.
