There were only a few color bearded dragons a few years ago,but now we have hundred of them, thanks to the breeders.
Bearded Dragon Colors
Bearded dragons, these days can be found in many colors. Below are some of the most popularbearded dragon colors.
As nominate bearded dragons one calls the archetype or wild form of the bearded dragon. They have a gray, greyish brown or even greenish basic color.
From the coloring, this breeding variant of the nominate bearded dragon is very similar.Thespecial thing about them is their size. They reach up to 60 cm. Lately, more and more color variations have been bred in, which is already very beautiful color drawings under the German Giants.
Bloods are bearded dragons with red coloring. These bearded dragons were established by the breeder Kevin Dunne from the USA. Blood bearded dragons have a red color, which often changes with the age of the bearded dragons in a rust-red-brown hue.
Chris Allen Red:
This variant also comes from the USA. The bearded dragons are rather dark red and in this coloring completely durchgemasert.
Sandfire is not a color name but a protected brand name of the Sandfire Dragon Ranch in the US. Only bearded dragons from the Sandfire Dragon Ranch may be called that. They have a red-orange-yellow color that covers the whole body and also the beard.
This color form is by Kevin Dunne, created by the mating of Sandfire and Snow. They have a pink-orange color, sometimes with lavender markings. In the course of their lives, they often lose their drawing and become patternless.
The Sunburst bearded dragons are also from Kevin Dunne from the USA. These bearded dragons are very yellow due to their melanin deficiency. Some have a back drawing that goes slightly orange.
These bearded dragons are bred by Terri Comella and Adam by Fire & Ice from the USA. They have a bright yellow and hardly any black parts.
In this color variant, the opinions vary widely, whether it is a color form or just multi-colored morph bearded dragons.
Several breeders from Germany use the name Rainbow for their offspring. Others call their bearded dragons Multicolor or Tricolor.
We also have a Rainbow / Blood female (Luna). And no matter if it is a color version or not: she is just so cute and has a lot of beautiful colors.
The name suggests that this variant is snow-white bearded dragons. These bearded dragons are very bright, but rather go gray or beige and have orange-yellow rings around the eyes. I have also heard that only original snow bearded dragons have yellowish throat mucous membranes.Thebearded dragons become brighter from skin to skin and lose more and more their drawing.
Leucistic are bearded dragons with a genetic defect. As a result, they have clear nails,and all black pigments are superimposed. The genetic defect can be inherited in the offspring.
Leucisticare often associated with light or white-bearded dragons. Although leftists have a lighter tone due to the superposition of black pigments, a leucist does not necessarily have to be a strikingly brightbearded dragon. Only when leftistsare paired with snows or brightbearded dragons is this the case. Leucism can be bred into any color form and thus appear in all color variations with clear nails.
Translucent is not a color variant, but rather a property caused by a genetic defect.Translucentmeans are translucent. The bearded dragons look as if they were just crinkly before molting, which makes their skin appear transparent. Translucent have black eyes. There are already very nice Color-Translucent. The color shines through the translucent skin.
Both the genetic defect of the leucist and the translucent are revealed in these bearded dragons.Thesebearded dragons are absolutely rare, beautiful and also incredibly expensive.
These bearded dragons are also very rare,and the price is accordingly high. Due to the low melanin content and the reduced black pigments (Hypo), the translucent effect of these bearded dragons is particularly effective. Also, these bearded dragons have black eyes and clear nails. Fantastically beautiful and still a real rarity. We are very proud that such a bearded dragon is with us.
The scales of these bearded dragons are much less pronounced than other bearded dragons.Their skin (especially on the back) resembles that of a snake and feels leathery.Reinforced this form is bred in the USA and Italy. Only a few German breeders have imported such bearded dragons. Therefore, they are quite rare, expensive and hard to get.
Opinions differ widely in this form of a bearded dragon. Silkbackswere bred from the leatherbacks. It is by far the most extreme breeding of the bearded dragon if one can even talk about bearded dragons. Silkbacks have no scales and no spikes. Your skin is absolutely smooth. These bearded dragons are from Italy.
Hypomelanistic / Hypo:
Hypo is the abbreviation for hypomelanistic and means that these bearded dragons have a reduced proportion of black pigments due to a reduced proportion of melanin under the skin. Hypomelanisticbearded dragons are generally relatively bright but can be bred into all color forms. Another feature of these bearded dragonsis their bright or clear claws.
Hyperrealist means exactly the opposite of hypomelanistic. These bearded dragons have a melanin excess under the skin and therefore appear very dark. In colorbreeding, this is not desirable, because so the colors of the bearded dragonsdo not come to light.
Heterozygote / Het .:
These bearded dragons have the genetic material of both parents in themselves, although they, for example, only have the characteristics of one parent, or even look completely different. However, they can pass on the genetic material of their parents to their offspring, so that they again have the appearance or the genes of the parent bearded dragons.
If, for example, two translucentare mated, and anbearded dragonis created that has no black eyes and is not translucent, then this bearded dragon is heterozygous on translucent and can pass on the Translucent property to its offspring, without even having these properties.
Bearded Dragon Morphs
Bearded dragon morphs are the result ofthe mating of different color variants. These morph bearded dragon carry the genes of both parent dragon and are therefore heterozygous for one or more color variants.
