Are there "green" bearded dragons?

Postby PudgysMom » Wed May 26, 2010 12:41 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I'm doing some research for a children's book, and I knew someone here could help me! Is there such a thing as a "Green" beardie? I know there are some that have a green tint to them, but I know we have red, sandstone, etc... how about green?

Thanks! :D

Green seems to be a very rare color in Bearded dragons, but I have seen a picture of a wild one in a Bearded Dragon book. The green wasn't like a bright, forest bush green but a muddy, old moss green. They are around, just uncommon.

Bane is a little greenish on his flanks. this is him when we first got him

It's not quite noticeable now. He's gotten some creamy orange that kinda overshadows it.

I like the way he looks now and all, and I'm sure he'll get more beautiful as he grows. But I really liked the way he looked when we got him. I thought he looked rather distinctive.

there's a breeder on the kingsnake.com classifieds that has had these flourescent green coloured dragons every now and again. I think she sells them as ghost hypo translucent or something. They're really crazy looking!

I know, right? I kind of wish I had purchased him when he was available just so I could have seen how he would have turned out! Oh well, I DEFINITELY don't need another dragon. I'll be looking forward to his adult pictures when the owners finally take some.

From what I have learned, the Citrus dragons start out as the bright green ones, but will yellow with age.

The ones with dull green hues and marks seem to fade and will be dull olive drab at best. Can't seem to find dragons that actually stay "green".
