Welcome, Draco!


Meet Draco the Bearded Dragon, our newest and “sharpest” program animal. Unlike many of the Science Center’s EcoZone and program critters, you cannot find Draco’s species basking in the sun in your own backyard. In fact, Bearded Dragons are lizards indigenous to Australia. These reptiles get their name because of a behavior where they can puff out and darken the skin under their throats, which looks like a beard. We’re super excited to start working with Draco to get him ready for programs hopefully starting at the beginning of next year. Get ready for bearded awesomeness!
