Scientific Name: Amphibolurus muricatus

Common Name: Jacky Lizard

Order: Squamata

Family: Agamidae

Other Names: Jacky Dragon

Distribution: South Eastern Australia

Habitat: Dry Sclerophyll Forest

Field Notes: The Jacky Lizard is pale grey to dark brown with dark patches along the middle of the back. The dark patches are interrupted by pale blotches that often blend together to form a continuous stripe from above the arm to the groin. There is a dark brown bar between the eye and the ear, however there is no dark stripe present between the nostril and the eye as in many other dragons.
The average size of a Jacky Lizard is 9 inches (22.86 cm) including the tail, though they have been recorded at lengths up to 17.5 inches (44.45 cm). The length of the tail is generally twice as long as that of the body. The average mass of the Jacky Lizard is 30 grams. The size of their heads can be used to differentiate between sexes, with male Jacky Lizards usually having conspicuously larger heads.
