Eragon, the Pet of the Day
Name: Eragon
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Bearded dragon
Home: Austin, Texas, USA
   Eragon is a bearded dragon. Eragon loves to go outside. He is very playful and friendly. He enjoys climbing, basking and staring off into space. He loves to run around the house at lunch time and spook the cat! Eragon is very sweet and will sit on my shoulder in the afternoon while I watch TV. My family and I like to make up crazy nicknames and we sometimes call him Pogona! (The scientific name for bearded dragons is Pogona Vitticeps.)

    Eragon was thin when I took this picture, as he wasn't feeling well so wasn't eating much, but he got better pretty quickly, and now he is fatter. He gets his greens first, then later I give him crickets. Eragon is very affectionate and he lets my family hold him and sometimes some of my friends! Eragon doesn't really know any tricks, but when it's really hot out he likes swim around in a baby pool! A game Eragon loves would be hide and go seek, a game that's not my favorite! :) Eragon is more of a lovable, laid-back personality. When Eragon is allowed out, he changes from laid back to energetic!! But when he is around the house he's calm and patient. He is a very special beardie!
