Murray, the Pet of the Day
Name: Murray
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Bearded Dragon
Home: Dana Point, California, USA
   This is Murray the bearded dragon. He is super special as he is an amputee due to bone cancer. He was rescued four years ago and now he lives with my husband, daughter and I and is well loved. He gets fresh worms and salad everyday and loves his treats of strawberries and bananas!

    Murray is super special to us not only because he's a friendly and gregarious fellow, but because he's a survivor. Murray braved cancer and endured neglect in a dark, dirty garage for years before we rescued him. Now he's a happy little guy. Although the cancer took his leg, Murray continues to amaze us with his positive attitude and friendly disposition. He couldn't be happier, and neither could we.

    Murray enjoys eating bananas out of our hands and kissing our fingers. He absolutely loves to puff his beard out when our cats get too close - just to trick them into thinking he is mean. He would never hurt anyone but would rather sit in the sun and enjoy the day. He can jump onto his sunning log even though he is missing a hand. He is such an inspiration to our family. He's our fabulous boy!
