Achilles, Zeus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Achilles, Zeus
Age: 3 1/2, One year old
Gender: Female, Male
Kind: Chinese water dragons
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
   Hi! We are Achilles and Zeus! Achilles is a three and a half year old female chinese water dragon, and zeus is a year old hopefully male chinese water dragon. Achilles was pointed out to her mom by a coworker of hers (her mom works in a petstore) and her mom fell in love. Of course, she had to have Achilles, and so she bought her and took her home. She was previously owned, and sooo friendly towards her new family! She became one happy healthy lizard!

    Then, during the christmas season, Achilles' mom was shopping and decided to look at a different petstore than the one she worked at, and found Zeus. Zeus lived with another juvenile water dragon, but unfortuneately, they didn't have proper condiitons. So when Zeus shed for the first time, it wasn't properly. Achilles' mom felt sorry for him, and took him home to give Achilles some company. A few days after Zeus was home, an inch long chunk fell off the end of his tail, due to improper conditions the first time he shed. Now he has a stumpy tail!

    Now they're both happy and healthy, despite the stumpy tail, and their mom hopes that Zeus is a boy, because then she can have little babies! Although he's still a little young to tell... they are very good friends and very good lizards.
