  • History:

    Frilled lizards are fairly abundant in their natural range, although they have faced slow decline in the 20th century. Habitat loss and fragmentation, as well as the introduction of the invasive cane toad species in the 1930’s, have played the largest part in their recent population drop. Still, they are currently classified as a species of least concern.

    Present Status Frilled lizards are listed as Least Concern due to their large distribution throughout their native range. They face local threats that have contributed to small population declines, such as predation by cats and dry season fires. They are also in demand in the pet trade, although they do not usually fare well in captivity.
