Where does he feel most at home?

The central bearded dragon is only found in the semi-deserts of Australia.

What's his favourite food?

They will eat everything from plants to insects or small rodents, and are opportunists; the will eat the first kind of food they will find. This is because they live in low-nutrient areas.

Fun fact

Typical behaviour for the central bearded dragon are their head movements. They will nod ‘yes’ to impress females or to intimidate other males.
And like their name suggests, they have a nice beard they can inflate to impress each other.
