Painted dragon

Ctenophorus pictus

When first seen the attractive male Painted Dragon often takes your breath away. During the peak of its breeding season the male displays a vivid array of blues, yellows an reds, while the female is much less colourful.

This species is unusual in that at the end of its reproduction cycle nearly all breeding adults will die. This means that most Painted Dragons will only live for one year but three year life cycles have been recorded.

Painted dragons live in sandy habitats and feed extensively on ants but they also consume some vegetation.
