It started with one. “For sale: Adult female Sandfire bearded dragon. $60.”
“She’s so beautiful! She’s perfect,” we said. So we called up the guy selling her and arranged a time to go meet her. For me it was love at first sight. But this little girl had three “sisters” living with her. One of them, a older, bigger, more confident girl, caught Chad’s eye, and he asked to look at her. While holding her, he looked at me and mouthed, “I like this one.”
You know where this is going. In the car, driving home, we decided it was either compromise or get both.
Two days later, November 14, 2014, we were driving the same route once again, this time with two bearded dragons in a box and big grins on our faces. We were officially bearded dragon parents!
It’s only been about 3 weeks since that day, and they’ve been named Nabooru and Deliora. As new bearded dragon parents (or dragon keepers, as we like to call ourselves), there’s a learning curve.
Favorite and least favorite foods.
(carrots and yams = YES, blackberries and red bell peppers = NO)
Yes, dragon keeping is an adventure, and we’re loving it!
