Today's Pet of the Day
Chai, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chai
Age: One and a half months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Northern Blue Tongue Skink
Home: Missouri, USA
   Chai is my precious Northern Blue Tongue Skink girl, who is a sister to Indivar! Her parents were named Outback (father), and Katerine (mother), who are owned by James Wilson in California.

    For many years, I wanted a "Bluey," but as a child I couldn't keep reptiles due to my mother's phobia of them. Of course, that didn't stop me from catching little lizards and garter snakes outdoors, and my fascination for animals never dimmed into adulthood. So now that I'm 28, Chai is very special to me, in that I have wanted a pet like her for so very long.

    I named her Chai, because that's my favorite kind of tea, and like the tea, her personality is sweet and a little bit spicy! She eats Pedigree wet dog food, ground lean beef, vegetables, leafy greens, meal worms, crickets, and non-citrus fruits, and she loves to take huge bites of it all! She's definitely not a nibbler.

    She's extremely curious, and loves to perch on my arm or shoulder. She's also very gentle, and careful when eating from my hands, and will even lick blended fruit from the tip of my finger without trying to bite. Chai really holds true to the reputation of her breed as a docile and easy- to-handle pet, and I'm looking forward to the next 15+ years with her.
