||Seven or eight months old|
||England, United Kingdom|
is the first bearded dragon I have ever owned, and since I got him
several months ago it has been an amazing experience! He is a huge baby, he
comes to say hello to me every morning when I give him fresh water and salad
and refuses to go to bed at night without getting his blanket (an old scarf
which I wore for three days prior to giving it to him to get my smell on it),
and a kiss goodnight from me! He is the first pet I've had that has ever been
100% truly mine and nobody else's in my family; he is like a baby to me (and
he knows it!). Ever since I brought him home he's been eager to interact with
me, and demands cuddles (and food) on a daily basis. His favorite foods are
currently mealworms, waxworms, carrot and basil leaves.
So far the most endearing thing about having Seymour as a pet is his
eagerness to come out of the vivarium and explore and/or cuddle with me; most
importantly (as can be seen in some of the pictures I have submitted) he
loves to "help" me type my homework and/or emails, and watch movies with me.
I am always glad to show off Seymour to family and friends, as due to his
docile nature he tends to prove even the most fearful people wrong about
lizards being bad and only wanting to bite. I am looking forward to many more
wonderful years with Seymour!
