Little-One, the Pet of the Day
Name: Little-One
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Bearded Dragon Sand Fire mix
Home: Tyrone, Georgia, USA
   This is Little-One. She is about seven months old and is a Bearded Dragon Sand Fire mix. She is extremely active and a real character. People say that lizards have no personality; well, they are wrong. She has more personality than any animal I have ever owned. She knows exactly when it's time to eat and she is the funniest creature out there (she often shows this by playing dead, laying on her back or hanging from the screen on her tank). Not to mention she is beautiful for a baby Beardie!

    Little-One is a very strange animal. She is still very young so the affection part is still not up to where our other bearded dragon is. She eats mainly crickets and some vegetables. She loves Hibiscus leaves and the dry food. Her personality is summed up in one way "weird." Most beardies take sun in by laying all out and flattening their backs; however, Little-One is a bit different. Instead of the normal laying, she lays on her back!! This is very uncommon; especially seeing how our other beardie does not do this. She also drinks more water than any other reptile I have ever seen. As soon as I lift the water bottle, she starts running all over the tank waiting to get squirted. As soon as I put the water into the bowl in her tank, "splash!!!" Her head is in the water!
