Default Rankin or Not ??

Hi all this might sound a really stupid thing to ask but i have had my lizard for over a year now, was bought for me by my son, when he got it from the pet shop which has now closed down !! He was told it was a bearded dragon and that it was 5 weeks old so i got all the info i could set up his new home and he has thrived very well but after a year was still very small even though he was eating as much a my friends adult beardie lol
So went to another pet shop i had been using for some time to buy his live food from and was told by the owner who has sold lizards for many years that she thought he was a Rankins Dragon now i found on the internet another breed which was the Vittikins now i'm totaly confused
Can anyone send me pics of a Vittikins and a Rankins so i can compair or just some general info
Many Thanks
Faded

vittikins are rankins x bearded dragon.

For pics of rankins, visit www.rankinsdragon.co.uk

Maybe post a pic of your lizard and some of the more experienced guys will probably be able to tell you which yours is.

Rankins don't have beards and generally only grow to 12" in length, also they love water where as beardies (generally) aren't really to fussed about water.

Post a pic or 3 of yours up, maybe someone can tell you for deffinate.

rankins do not have spines around there throat, where as beardies do.

Do you have any pictures??

no,... you never have to pay attention to anyone unless they are sensible and respectful. any kid that thinks he's all that is mistaken and should be put in his place.

If he is still only 12 inches from nose to tail in length after 12 months , i'd think he is a rankins or a vittikins.

My friends 3 1/2 month old beardie is nearly 12" from nose to tail.
