    Rex, the Bearded Dragon

    Rex is not very bright.  He tried to eat the green print off the paper plate.  Now I have to give him plain white plate so he doesn't thing the print is salad.  Sometimes he lets the crickets sit on his head.  When I let him out, he keeps coming back and...

    New Additions

    Christmas season is here again.  The time of year when we regrettably ask our children what they want for presents, only to be inundated with an impossible list.  This year the list wasn't't too bad.  Video games being the major item until they got to the end. "Can...

    Unfortunately he died on Christmas Day! He hasn't been looking so good. So I'd rather him be happy than suffering! I will miss him!

    My boyfriend and I have had our bearded dragon, Smaug, for 5 years now. She is now part of the family. She is the cutest thing that I have ever seen. She recently laid a clutch of unfertilized eggs. She's never seen a male before. I do feel bad about Smaug being alone for a long...

    Well tonight was a bit of a scare.

    Eddie swallowed the whole coffee filter. Couldn't get ahold of any specialist this evening because he's considered an exotic pet and not a whole lot of information online about it. Was finally able to get ahold of somebody and I guess as long as he doesn't show any signs of...

    How can I entice my juvenile to eat his greens?

    I've tried hand feeding, banana, dangling leaves, misting.. He just picks the bits he likes (carrot slivers) and leaves the kale. He's a cheeky little safety dragon.

    Never thought I would love these guys

    as much as I do. I have 2 and they have such personalities. Very easy to take care of. I would definitely recommend them to any parent who is looking for a low maintenance pet for their child! Here is my handsome boy!

    We have bearded dragon called Charmander. He's 3 years old, and completely part of the family (and the cutest part of it). He loves his greens and crickets. And sometimes the edges of paper plates. When he's out, he can usually eventually be found burrowed under the covers of my...

    "sunny" Corleone, My New Dragon!

    I was on my way to the Gym and somehow felt drawn to Whitie's Pet Store nearby, before I worked out. It was dark already, and I was surprised they were still open. I had often thought about going, just to look, something like a quick visit to the "zoo", just something quick and...

    Damien was found in a dumpster.

    It was sometime in March of 2010 when the pet store in my town was given a phone call by a bearded dragon breeder, asking them to take in their last 2 babies because they were moving out of town and no one would buy them. The pet store manager refused, as it's store policy to...

    I love my beardies! They are

    so fun to see when they communicate with each other and they are so gentle! They don't bite or spot and it's hard for you to hate them! I love my bearded dragon because when he's out, he'll snuggle next to me and I think it's adorable. ❤️
