      This is one of the Hypsilurus magnus , not the mountain horned dragons. Annoying that these still aren't labelled.

      Oops :eek:

      Thank you for the correction. I have amended the title: I chose the clumsy common name from the Zoo's Annual Report rather than Zootierliste's 'Gariau forest dragon', but I don't like either much.

      I thought trusting the label might be a mistake, and a Google search didn't really help. I get confused by agamids :confused:

      I've seen them for sale under the name 'New Guinea Forest Dragon', which, while not uniquely applicable to H. magnus, is a much more sensible name in my opinion.
