Girls will be boys: Sex reversal in dragon lizards

    Description

    One of Australia’s iconic lizard species is hiding a secret – female central bearded dragon embryos temporarily grow the lizard equivalent of a penis during development.

    Researchers at The University of Queensland, the University of Canberra and CSIRO made the discovery while investigating what happens to the body and genitalia of male dragons that reverse their sex at high temperature treatment.
