Angela

So I have a buddy named Derek whose room, for as long as I knew him, was filled with terreriums, in which resided all manner of creatures. He is in Spain now doing a mission er somthing... and he needed to find people to take care of said creatures whilst he was away. My mother volunteered to take his bearded dragon, named Angela, so now I have two.Lewis is quite happy at this turn of events. However, I'm beginning to think that his intentions with her may not be honorable. He lunges at her when we bring her near his cage, and when we take her away he keeps doing his mating dance, of which I only managed to record this little clip:

He's not much of a suitor is he? Jeny, you're crazy! If Nico asked me for something like that I don't know what I'd do [that is, after I came to, because I'd faint if he ever really asked for a live animal]!

I didn't know they had a mating "dance". I guess I'm gonna have to get i girl for Chuck if I really want to see it. Angela is very cute!

we'll try to get a better one. They bob their heads up and down and move their back leg in a circle, and with Lew, the skin under his chin gets super dark. that may just be the variety he is, though. That's when we know he's happy. At one point, he was bobbing his head super hard, banging it on his log on the way up and the log was moving. Silly boy.

Nico and Derek saw some at the nature center that they got to pet... don't worry mom, nico wouldn't even touch them :) Derek, on the other hand, wanted to take the "baby" home with us
