Warff, the Pet of the Day
Name: Warff
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Breed: Bearded Dragon
Home: Staten Island, New York, USA
 
   Warff is an eight-month-old Bearded Dragon from Staten Island, New York. Contrary to what many believe about lizards, Warff is extremely playful and personable. If you Kiss him he will kiss you back and when he's out of his habitat, he will follow me where ever I go. What's even more special about him is that he enjoys watching T.V! It's true! Especially Basketball. When I set the TV to show a game, he will stare at it attentively and turn away if I change the channel!

    Shown here majestically perched on the top branch of his habitat, Warff is by far the greatest! He is a fun loving, playful and the best little friend I could have! Warff does change color, but not like a chameleon. He doesn't change in order to camouflage himself but he does go through phases. Sometimes he is very very dark, almost black and when he gets older he will go through a red phase where his skin will have reddish "highlights." When he reaches sexual maturity and is ready to mate, his throat turns black. Most of the time though, he is as you see him here. He is definitely colorful in personality and looks! Bearded Dragons are the most receptive and docile Lizard for anyone interested in owning a reptile.
