The real name is Basiliscus, known as the lizard because of its ability to walk on water. It is part of the iguana family. It lives in the tropical forests of Central and South America, near rivers and streams. For more concrete information about dragons,see here.

They feed primarily on insects, small invertebrates, flowers, and small vertebrates (such as snakes, birds, and fish). It is preyed upon by large birds, snakes, fish and other large reptiles and mammals.

The bearded dragon
The bearded dragon comes from Australia. The most popular species among pets is the indoor bearded dragon. It lives in the dry forests and deserts of central Australia. He spent most of his waking time in the bushes and trees, and wandered over the rocks.
When it's hot, the bearded dragon will dig holes underground. It is an omnivorous animal. It seeks to feed on insects, small lizards and mammals, fruits, flowers and other plant material.
He has thorns on his throat, on both sides of his head, and on both sides of his body. Its head is wedge-shaped and its tail is almost as long as its body.
It is difficult to distinguish between males and females in juvenile fish. When they reach adulthood, the differences between the sexes become more pronounced. Males have larger heads, thicker beards, and darker colors. The foramen of the femur (thigh) in men also distinguishes them from women.
Adult males can be up to 70 cm (2 feet) long, including the tail. Their life expectancy is around 10 years.
