Also puts pay to the idea that Rankins dragons should be kept in the same way. Using the maps and charts on this thread, and a map od P. Henrilawsoni territory, they have more rainfall, therefore there is more vegitation, and this in turn means no sand!!!!!

Have you actually seen the Savannah plains where they come from? It's soil is nearly as crappy as the main area for Centrals and whilst they may have more vegetation this is a comparative term. It's mainly grassland with scattered scrub and trees, here's a link to the actual weather stats for Julie Creek which is the best I can do for Black Soil Beardies range. http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/averages/tables/cw_029025.shtml Note the rainfall is only heavy for two months with high average temps at the same time and even then the humidity is low so it's disappearing almost before it hits the ground!! Check this out for soil condition http://www.flickr.com/photos/raeallen/5980875/ and this for vegetation http://www.griffith.edu.au/ins/collections/webb/html/19-91.html . What we consider as good soil is pretty crappy stuff compared to what you're used to as you can see.
