is very special to me because I bought him when he was only a month old.
He became very sick for a couple months but pulled through I would say
he is a very lucky little boy to have survived being so ill. He is very
strong and all grown up now. He is a beautiful animal and I hope he
stays with me for a very long time.
Sam is an independent lizard. The last thing he likes is to be held and
loved. Whenever I talk to him he will stare me down and squint his eyes
until they are almost closed. It's the funniest thing I have ever seen.
He is however very friendly when it comes to feeding time. He likes to
shoot his 7 inch tongue out of his mouth and grab meal worms from my
hand. He really enjoys it so much that he would eat till he was sick.
Sam's favorite things to do are hide under my bed, bask outside in the
sun when its 90 degrees out, hang from his tail when he eats his
crickets, and try to court my female water dragon. He doesn't realize
that she doesn't really care for him too much. Over all, Sam is just
very special to me because he is unique. Even though he isn't cuddly
and furry, he does have a personality that I can relate with. He's fun
to watch, and occasionally he does like his cheeks rubbed. I've had him
since he was a baby so he is like a child to me.
