    It's a bearded dragon. They come from Australia and are commonly bred and raised here.

    Beardies tend to have quite a bit of personality -- in a good way.

    BDs (the dragons -- not our forum leader) are generally very mild mannered and handlable. Folks with whom I have spoken even go as far as to say that their bds seem to actually enjoy being handled.

    We lucked out and were able to find a new place in the same area...just slightly North by a mile or so. I love it here. The locals are like people you've known all your life. Once they establish your aren't here on vacation they can be downright friendly! lol J/K We like our snowbirds here too.
    I may let them leave the dragon with the house if he/she won't bite or freak me out. I've never considered a pet like this, but she's so pretty. They says it's a she and they call her Lizzie. I could put a sign up, Beware of Killer Lizzie! Put a pic of a monitor lizard up...maybe a Hela monster. lol

    Bet you will have fewer insects around. By all means keep her. She is cute in an ET sort of way. Good Luck with your move. Wish i was moving to ur area.

    Lizzie is a great name for her (though I was partial to BD :P) hahah...

    I hope you will share photos of your new grow space when you get some time, Connie. I am so excited for you.

    Cheers,
    BD

    I've been trying to figure out what to do at the new house. There are some nice tree limbs and a nice space for a greenhouse...or pergola. I'm still working the details out.

    I'll take her, I'll take her!! Haha =P
    I love beardies. They're like sweet little scaly puppies.
    You should definitely keep her though, she's beautiful!
