Default Rescued baby bearded dragon

Hello everyone,
I have recently rescued a baby bearded dragon from a man who clearly had no idea how to care for it. I have researched all i can and can now say that the baby is doing so much better.. (It was a bit if a state when i got it) .. Anyway now for my question... I am unsure as to the type of bearded dragon it is and was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me.. So i know how best to continue its care



I hope you are able to view the images!
Thank you so much

Pogona vitticeps are the most commonly kept pet bearded dragons. A pogona henrylawsoni is a rankin's dragon and they are much smaller than bearded. Not sure on microlepidota though.
You most likely have a vitticeps or henrylawsoni, the other commonly kept beardie is a german giant but these are also a member of p.vitticeps.

Likely to be P. vitticeps. It's unlikely to be P. henrylawsoni as they are more expensive and less common. It could be a cross between the 2, but all their care is similar (slightly lower temperatures for a Rankins though).
