Where does he feel most at home?
The Chinese water dragon likes to live in the tropical rainforests of South East Asia.
What’s his favourite food?
They’re very good hunters who feed mainly on large insects, frogs, small lizards, mice, birds and in rare cases also fruit.
They have a 'third eye': a piece of skin with light-sensitive cells that can’t form an image like the other two eyes, but can perceive rough light/dark shifts, very handy when an enemy approaches from above, like a bird of prey.Adopt this Chinese water dragon
