Our New pet

Meet our new pet.  He/she is a Bearded Dragon named Flash Dragon Fox.  The boys came up with the name and he goes by flash.  I am actually surprized at how much I like him, and I do enjoy holding him myself.   

Here is Everett showing off Flash.  

The boys like to play a game with him when we feed him his crickets.  They all pick a cricket and pretend that they are one (a cricket) and watch to see who is the last one to get eaten, it is kind of fun.

You are a brave woman, Katie.

Can't handle a dog, but a reptile is bearable. :) With four boys in the house I am surprised it took you this long. I love it, and his name! Kiss those boys for me.

That's so cool you got a bearded dragon. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions. We had Oscar for 8 years. Here's a couple of tips for now. It's a good idea to feed it in a different tank, because he can accidentally swallow some sand and that is NOT good for them. Also, when it's time to clean out his tank, you can get playground sand at home depot. A 50 lb bag of playground sand is about the same price as a little bag of sand at the pet store. Have fun with your new pet!

Hi Katie,
We've never had a bearded dragon, but I understand they make great pets. We'll be so excited to see it when we come next month. I like reptile pets!
