This is a close-up photo taken at a herpetological expo in Houston, Texas (the East Texas Herpetological Society Expo). This is a two-headed bearded dragon. The lizard was about 4 to 5 inches long at the time the shot was taken.

Are these local Texan wildlife? Looks just like an Aussie bearded dragon (with one head:-)).

Don't let out your secret. We want people to visit Australia now and again, don't we?

Actually, this one was hatched out in Texas. I visited with the owners for a while and did a dozen or so shots. Perhaps its parents were Aussies... :crazy:

Here's a spookier version.

Yeah, thanks. I agree. Most of the time when you hear of the "two headed" things in the reptile world, it will usually bea water turtle or perhaps even a snake. This is the first time I've seen one of these (a lizard or bearded dragon)so I thought I'd better get shots of it while I had the chance.

Thanks for the nice comment.

Yes, a lot! But not with these photo, other than to adjust for color. Even though there is a strange light to the right side of the top photo, that was just a result of harsh lights. And handholding a camera for closeups with no external flash and low lightingresulted in alack of depth of field which is pretty obvious.

I've got more photos of him on my website, if you'd like to see. The owner also has photos on his website.

Some of my shots can be seen here (with more if you enter the expo site):

The owner's website is here:

But no. No photohop altering of that guy. I suppose I could try to add a third head, but sometimes truth is stranger than... hmmm...Photoshop. :-)

Two heads are better than one! What a strange little creature.
