One of the most common morphs that a bearded dragon will display is the leatherback morph, which reduces the animal's scales. Leatherback bearded dragons appear smoother and are less spikey. Leatherbacks are a common choice in the industry. With an even further reduced scalation, there are microscale and silkback bearded dragons. However, Cliffhanger Reptiles does not produce these due to genetic instability.
Dunner bearded dragons have a slightly different scale pattern and foot shape. Rather than scales aiming from head to toe, Dunner scales are spiraled. Furthermore, the scales on a Dunner beardie face out instead of in. Dunner bearded dragons commonly have a distinct color pattern, which is one reason they have grown in popularity.
Genetic stripe bearded dragons (pictured left) have a stripe in their scales going from the top of their head to the base of their tail. While color-striped bearded dragons have a stripe in color, genetic stripes (or g-stripes) have variations in their scales that create a stripe.
Witblits (or Wits) bearded dragons are commonly mistaken for zero bearded dragons, and vice versa. Many breeders produce white wits dragons. However, unlike zero bearded dragons, wits are capable of holding color in their scales. On the other hand, wits show no pattern. They are fully patternless. They also show no visible shoulder pads.
A cross between a Zero and a Witblits bearded dragon is a called a Wero.
