Over the weekend we took the boys to Repticon to look at all of the neat reptiles and amphibians. My husband and I knew we were looking to get either a snake or a lizard, but we didn’t know what and we didn’t expect it to be at that moment.
Being the impulse buyers that we are, we fell in love with this little guy…
Meet Flynn Rider! He is a two-month-old Rainbow Tiger Bearded Dragon and is a beauty! He has bright orange stripes with yellow and blue in between. I’ve never quite seen a lizard with his kind of markings. As for his name, I asked my 3-year-old what he wanted to name our new boy lizard and his first response was “Rapunzel.” I chuckled a bit and then told him that we already had something that was called Rapunzel (a teddy bear he gave me for Christmas). Then I asked him if he had any other names that he liked. At that is how Flynn Rider came to be.
Life with a dragon is a bit different. We have learned a lot in the past few days about him. Like that he needs a bath every other day. Yesterday was his first bath in his new home. He wasn’t too sure about it, but did get a good drink of water.
We are all still adjusting to each other and look forward to watching him grow. The boys absolutely love him and are eager to start holding him more often.
