Here's the new dragon!

Here he is. This is the one lizard we got of the 12 eggs that were laid. It took him until 10pm tonight to finish getting himself out of the egg - and really Mark pulled it off of the tip of his tail. He is so cute! Jonah, we need to know his name so we can call him by name instead of just calling him "Him". We really won't know for sure the he's a he for a few weeks at least. It's OK to change his name later if you need to. Take a look, and let me know.




He's so tiny and cute! He hugs my finger and won't let go on his own. So far I haven't seen his eyes, but that should come pretty soon. He did take a drink while he was on Spencer's finger, so it looks like he's doing just fine.

"Cute" is not the adjective I would choose. But, I'm sure he is a lot of fun. I still can't imagine trying to feed something that small. Good luck with him.

Ick! Creepy, crawlies are supposed to live in the wild [that's OUTSIDE the house]. I think there's a reason my boys were born without the "bring things inside that will make Mom scream" gene.

Sooooo CUTE! I want to hold it! We saw some babies at the pet store the other day but they were nowhere near that small. How fun!!

It's so exciting! I would definitely call him cute. Jonah and his dad are discussing names, so we'll let you know. I can't wait for it to hug my finger. I hope it doesn't grow too fast!

Jonah has decided on Tiger for the dragon's name.

Tiger is very cute! I guess I need to come down again and see him.

What is this thing? meaghan was wanting to know. When I told her a dragon, she said "like a fire breathing kind? cause I didn't think those existed" Derek said very awesome and that Tiger is a cool name :)

It's a bearded dragon. No firey breath. That would be super cool, though.

I'm glad Derek likes the name! I was rooting for Claude, myself. I keep getting on just to look at him some more. He's so cool!
