||One and a half years old|
||Chinese water dragon|
||San Antonio, Texas, USA|
This is my Chinese water dragon, Richard. He has a lot of
personality, too, just like some of the other water dragons that have been
featured here. He enjoys climbing the curtains to get the best view of my
room. Richard also loves being inside the closet, and he has figured out
how to get in, even if the door is only open a crack. He likes to sleep on
laundry, and just about any soft object he can find.
Richard knows how to drink from a cup, and when he sees his cup, he will
immediately let me know that he wants to take a sip. He also likes to be
hand-fed, to the point of laziness. If I put a closed fist in front of
him, he knows that there will be a cricket within it, and prepare himself
to snatch it out of my hand!
Richard is my first water dragon. He was actually my "plan B" because I
originally wanted a snake, but knew my roommate would not be wild about
living under the same roof as one. After doing homework on water dragons,
I decided to "settle" for a lizard, and I realized I had made the right
choice. I saw him in the store and I knew he was the one for me! He was
the most rambunctious water dragon in his tank. The rest is history :-)
Richard is the best!
