Bearded Dragon Runs for Science!

Bonnan Lab Lizard TreadmillA brief post to show our progress in the BFF Locomotion Lab. We’re learning our equipment and training our lizards to walk and run. The lizards are rewarded with a cricket as a treat. The lizard you see in the video is Graybeard, a juvenile bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps). This video is comprised of two synched cameras and is a test video and not yet the “real” thing. But we’ll be capturing real data and more soon enough.

As always, stayed tuned and there will be more reptiles running in the near future!

    • Hi Amber,

      What a wonderful thing you’re doing rescuing dragons. I wish I could tell you that you could assist our research here in the States, but the sort of data we collect requires several synched cameras and a treadmill — and X-rays in the future. But the sentiment is very much appreciated. Keep up the good work!
