||One year old|
||Phoenix, Arizona, USA|
is my pet Bearded Dragon, her name is Harry... She is almost a year old now!
As you can see she is stretched out in a most regal pose, however she seems to
be piercing the camera with a most indignant and disdainful stare... This
haughty lizard holds a most special place in my heart, she deserves to be the
Pet of the Day!
As for her name, Yes named him before I knew her gender! As they age it
becomes pretty easy to tell actually, first off the males will have a series
of waxy pores called "femoral pores" that grow in a line down each rear thigh.
Also males will have two bulges just behind the cloaca on the fattest part of
their tail, these are the hemipenes, females will lack these two bulges, another
good indicater is that males will get very black beards for part of the year
during mating season. She was too young to tell when we got her, and her name
As you can see from her plump belly she enjoys to ravenously devour delicious
silk worms, crickets, and lobster roaches! And if she is in an especially
good mood I might be able to convince her to eat some of her mixed
Her likes and dislikes are as follows:
Likes: Obedient caretakers (me), a warm rock under a bright heat lamp, prompt
poop removal, bugs, and a luke warm bath at least once a week...
Dislikes: The cold, late meals, early mornings, leafy greens (what a pain! she
is really spoiled) even though she should eat them because they are good for her!
