Pogona are a genus of lizards containing seven species, which are often known by the common name bearded dragons. Members of this genus live in the arid, rocky, semi-desert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia. They are adept climbers, spending time on branches and in bushes, even found on fence posts when living near human habitation. Pogona bask on rocks and exposed branches in the mornings and afternoons. The species are found throughout Australia.
Several species of this genus have been domesticated, especially Pogona vitticeps and are often kept as pets or exhibited.
