Bearded Dragon Colors In the wild, colors of bearded dragons were primarily dependent upon their habitat. However, thanks to selective breeding, bearded dragons are now available in just about every color. Different breeders describe different colored bearded dragons with different names. What one breeder calls citrus another calls yellow or lemon. The names to describe bearded dragon’s colors varies widely, and we think they are not that important, realistically anyone can see, white, red, orange, etc. Certain saturated colors such as red, white and orange are more expensive in the breading market. And by saturated we mean that the bearded dragon is covered in the only color.

The color is color, but morph is related to the bearded dragon overall appearance, body type and scales. The following are the most common bearded dragon colors.      
