The goal of our research is to develop a training method in order to test the sensory and cognitive processes of captive bearded dragons (Pogona viticeps). Ultimately, we wish to test their ability to detect polarized and ultraviolet light: sensory capacities which have never been tested in this species. We chose to use captive-bred individuals of this species because they are unafraid of humans and therefore respond readily to novel stimuli in captivity. The first step of our research was to train the dragons to accept food from us. The next step of our research is to use operant conditioning and two-choice discrimination learning in order to train one of the dragons to choose one colored light (e.g red) over a different colored light (e.g blue), and train the other dragon to choose the opposite color. The last step of our research is to use the same Y-maze method to explore the capacity of bearded dragons to detect novel sensory stimuli such as polarized and ultraviolet light. In conclusion, we believe by developing a training paradigm in order to test the sensory abilities of our bearded dragons, we can add to the knowledge of lizard cognition and sensory discrimination.
