||One year old|
||Lebanon, Oregon, USA|
is Spike, he is a one-year-old Bearded Dragon. Spike is special because he tolerates all
the crazy stuff I do to him, like putting him on a leash or making him wear a
hat! The leash, as you can see, is very soft, I made it from yarn so it
wouldn't irritate his skin, which is actually more delicate than it looks. It
really is skin, not armour, after all. He is an extremely photogenic lizard
and constantly demands to be at the center of attention! And with a face like
that, who could resist? He is a fun pet for sure!
He doesn't really do any tricks but he does know when it's bedtime. I'll go
into my room around 10:30pm and he will be sitting in his favorite spot to
sleep and closes his eyes as soon as I turn off his light. His favorite foods
are dandelions, green beans, bananas and yellow squash. He also likes my
little dog, they will sometimes sit on the floor and lick each other!
