our good friends are moving and they let us adopt their pet- wizard the lizard.
my kids decided he was more dave than wizard.
you know i have no control over these decisions.
(i barely get to name my own kids).
so far, we love dave... he's quiet, he doesn't stink, kids can hold him without injury, and...
if you pull his tail off, it will grow back (please don't tell my kids this).
i seem to be destined for
dave- welcome to the family!
the professor did some research... it turns out david is a "Chinese Water Dragon".
[and, for your information, he informed me that dave is a reptile not an amphibian. good thing for the phd... i'd be lost in Petsmart looking for dragon food by the frog stuff...]
david can grow up to 1 foot long with a 2 foot tail.
day 2 and we still like him.
all the kids have taken their turn letting him crawl on their shoulders.
and, watching him hunt and catch crickets is pretty cool... especially because he has the cutest tongue that he sticks out before he GRABS em.
fun stuff! (thanks katie)
