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.
