Don’t you have bearded dragons in Australia? They are also bred globally.
Yes, but they are quite small.

However, we do have goannas which are big and can run pretty fast . They have what looks like the same beast in Malaysia; I once saw one run up a coconut tree.,

A goanna is any of several Australian monitor lizards of the genus Varanus, as well as certain species from Southeast Asia.

Around 30 species of goanna are known, 25 of which are found in Australia. This varied group of carnivorous reptiles ranges greatly in size and fills several ecological niches.[1]

The eastern bearded dragon (Pogona barbata), also known as common bearded dragon or simply bearded lizard,[2] is an agamid lizard found in wooded parts of Australia.[3] It is one of a group of species known commonly as bearded dragons. Other common names for this species include Jew lizard[1] and frilly lizard, the latter being a confusion between this and another dragon, the frill-necked lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii). This species was originally described in 1829 by Georges Cuvier, who named it Amphibolurus barbatus.[4]

Adult males can grow to about 60 cm (24 in) from the snout to the tip of the tail, while females may reach 50 cm (20 in) in overall length.
