    Perfect Pet For Me

    I had a bearded dragon, Draca, about 4 years ago but I ended up having to get rid of her because I moved. I loved her and always said I was eventually going to get another one. About 3 months ago, I got a baby beardie. He (she? idk yet, still a baby) was smaller than Draca...

    Clyde

    Clyde is my leopard gecko. We aren't sure of his exact age, but he's probably about 2 years old. When I got him, he was accompanied by a female. They were a mated pair, so I found it fitting to name them Bonnie and Clyde. But Bonnie is now dead, she was shedding, which for those...
