Bacon, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bacon
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Bearded Dragon
Home: Midland, North Carolina, USA
   This is Bacon, the bearded dragon, born May 24th, 2011. I named her Bacon because I was thinking about bacon at the time, and I love the two so dearly, and so it just stuck.

    Bacon enjoys gut loaded crickets, meal worms, and the occasional baby (frozen then thawed) mouse. When out of her terrarium, she likes to sit on my shoulder, arm, or head and likes to explore the wonders of my room in search for a nice shoe to go to sleep on. I always say that she's like a child because she never wants to eat her veggies (except for a little bit of kale). Despite her curiousity, she is very laid back and so passive her prey often gets a free ride on top of her head.

    Her curiosity sometimes makes her do funny things. One time when she was little, she hopped up on her tree and then leapt to cling to the thermometer dangling on the wall for a few seconds before falling off! She's slso very curious about the camera, these pictures are some of the only ones I where able to take without her looking at it head on and following it around the room! In the full body picture, she was a lounging on that mesh seat, and she didn't care for the material because of how her claws sunk in, so I gently removed her soon after this picture to make sure her claws didn't get damaged.
