We lost our beloved female beardy "Bernice" May 26th. We are extremely depressed about our loss. She had such a great personality. We only had her for 4 months. We bought her we thought from a reputible place. She seemed healthy but she was fat. We introduced her to her mate and they hit it off of course. Bernie is going to be a dad, but three weeks after she layed her 30 eggs so perfectly and then we did our part, she seemed fine. Just all of a sudden she was listless and we couldn't wake her up Saturday and she would stop beathing off and on. The vet x-rayed her and showed us the three eggs left in her but were moved down, there were broken eggs -- we have no clue how she had broken eggs with a MASSIVE infection all over her lower belly. She got worse by the hour and all we did was cry and asked the vet to help her. She didn't even have a 50% of making it thru the night let alone surgery. We took her home and she died an hour later on my husband's neck. It was like losing part of our family. I am mad because I think she had already layed a clutch and this was left, then she was pregnant by our Bernie and layed her eggs and she very slowly got sick. We are getting her "taxidermied" -- might sound stupid but we want her with us. We miss her sooooooooooo much. And Bernie is depressed now without her and we can't find another female. She will get fixed because we don't want to go thru this pain again.

I have a bearded dragon called Liz. But mostly he's called Fatty! He is the coolest pet ever. He is also extremely spoiled. He gets fed by hand and water by hand daily and gets to run all over the house. He especially likes to climb up and down the stairs and to see how far he can jump. He's less than a year old but has a great personality and gives lots of licks and loves to be held. I'd highly recommend one as a pet, but they do require a lot of time and upkeep but it is well worth it. Thanks - Brandon and Trayce

I have a beardy named Duke. He is one very spoiled lizard. My husband got him into eating waffles. And now all you have to do is walk into the room with a plate of them and he goes CRAZY. He starts to run all over his cage until you put some in there for him. He also likes to watch cartoons and video games. He mainly likes the movement and the color. But he`s a spoiled little guy. When we first got him I didn`t think I would like him. But we have had him for 2yrs and now he is part of the family. My niece and nephew come to my house and first thing they want is to play with the Dukester.
Beardys are awesome critters.
Thanks
Jessica and Tim

Hello! My boyfriend and I have had a bearded dragon, Spike, for about 6 months now. He is such a wonderful pet! Even though they aren't fluffy like a dog or a cat, Spike gives me kisses and loves attention. Anyways, bearded dragons are a great pet, and fairly rare too. I've had too many conversations that have the other person asking "Whats a bearded dragon look like?"
