Everything you need to know about bearded dragon morphs


All-in-all, there are numerous different kinds of colors and patterns that a bearded dragon morph can have. Depending on where you live, your budget, and your determination, there are a variety that are readily available.

How much does a bearded dragon morph cost?

Depending on the rarity and demand, these bearded dragon morph prices vary wildly. As time goes on, and the morphs become more available, the price is sure to go down, but it could take a while. 

Without further ado, here is the list of all the currently known bearded dragon morphs, patterns, and colors:

Bearded dragon Morphs

Normal – The normal bearded dragon morph is exactly what you would find in the wild.

Leatherback – Leatherbacks have varying colors, but what makes them so unique is the lack of spikes along their backs.

Translucent – The word “translucent” refers to this bearded dragon’s almost see-through appearance. Babies have an almost completely see-through belly, and the adults tend to have brown eyes, and even blue eyelids.

Dunner – Named by Kevin Dunn, this morph has quite a unique pattern that runs all over the bearded dragon’s body, and even tail. Their scales seem to have no clear pattern, however, and seem to grow in all directions.

Hypomelanistic – this morph is unique in the fact that it is unable to grow dark patterns. They all have a pastel appearance and clearer nails compared to all other bearded dragon morphs.

Silkback – the silkback morph is a completely scaleless animal. They’re soft to the touch, but require special care.

German Giant – The German giant morph almost always resembles a normal. The only real difference is the fact that they grow much larger than normal.

Witblits – The Witblits dragon is a very sought after morph in the bearded dragon world. They can exhibit a few varying colors, but always express light, almost white colors, and no pattern.

Zero – The zero dragon is completely patternless and colorless. Throughout their entire life, they maintain their solid white look.

Wero – The wero morph is very new to the world, as it’s a combination of the witblits and the zero. The only real difference between the wero and the zero/witblits is that it can sometimes have a slight pattern near the beginning of the tail.


Red – The red bearded dragon is one of the most sought after because of its vibrant color. The red can vary anywhere from a light undertone, all the way up to a fire red.

Orange – This color is often confused as a “normal” bearded dragon, but it’s not quite normal. A real orange bearded dragon can be just as vibrant as the red, and definitely stands out amongst normals.

Citrus/yellow – Again, this color morph can vary in shades. You can find anything from a light pastel to a bright lemon color.

White – The white dragon is one of the most prized bearded dragons out there. The color is considered rare, and it’s quite a unique addition to anyone’s home.

Brown/tan – The brown/tan morph is what most people consider to be normal. They are the most readily available, but are still quite a beautiful animal.

Blue – The blue bearded dragon is the product of breeding two translucent bearded dragons together. Although they are quite rare and beautiful, they don’t seem to keep their color into adulthood. Bummer.


Typically speaking, there are only 2 real classifications for patterns in bearded dragons:

Tiger – This pattern, as you can probably guess, is identified by the horizontal stripes going across the back.

Others – For right now, there aren’t any other universal patterns that breeders and enthusiasts agree on. So anytime a varying pattern comes up, the breeder will typically give it a new name, or classify it as “other.”

There is one important point to make when talking about morphs in bearded dragons: patterns and colors may not hold as the bearded dragon grows. Most often, the color and pattern that the dragon is born with will not look exactly the same when it’s fully grown.
