"pogona vitticeps" just the technical term for bearded dragons?

Pogona vitticeps is the 'normal' bearded dragons that you usually see, which grow from 18-24".
It's hard to say what morphs they are in this case, could have very weak colours of different morphs that are not distinguishable.

sandfire is a registered trade mark of a colour morph bred by bob mallioux at sandfire dragon ranch.just because u have a bright beardie doesnt mean u have one of these dragons.u may have just a high yellow.theres a colour morph registry and that is where u register all the new colour morphs...like blood and ice dragons are from fire and ice dragons.unless u can trace the lineage back to sandfire (usa) then the chances are u havent got one. :wink: my beardie is a high yellow and sometimes he has bright orange lips lol.high colouring in bearded dragons nowadays is down to decades at captive breeding.if u look at a wild beardie they arnt as colourful. :shock: :wink:

Your last post was cool: I love all my animals too, no matter what they are.
The "morphs" are just different markings produced by breeding for colour. They are commoner in the USA than here.
Pogona is the name for all Aussie Bearded Dragons (family name), vitticeps is the name for the Inland Bearded Dragon (species name). Morphs are just sub-species of Pogona vitticeps. As someone else pointed out, Sandfire is actually a trade name relating to a specific breeder's product and their offspring.
There is a special name for your BDs: beautiful!

Sorry , my Maple Leaf Friend! It's a typical British reaction to assume that we are the centre of the universe!
Apparently, a friend tells me that he thinks your BD may be a red-gold dragon. Don't know if that helps
