||Five years old|
||Langley, British Columbia, Canada|
pet's name is Molly, and she is five years old. She is a female bearded
dragon. I purchased her from a newspaper ad. I brought her home
immediately and the poor girl was severely malnourished, severely
dehydrated and full of eggs. The very first night I had her, she started
digging, so I quickly put a nesting box into her terrarium. That very
night she struggled to dig a nest until the early hours of the morning.
Then she laid fifteen fertile eggs. The eggs are currently incubating and are
due to hatch in the middle of March. I have worked very hard to bring
her back from the edge of death. She is now bright-eyed, full of life,
active and loves her veggies and crickets.
People should always do research before getting a pet - especially so
they don't end up as badly off as Molly was when we met. It is so
rewarding to see her happy and healthy after all she went through.
