Enter the Dragon...Bearded Dragon that is...

Meet "Mushu" (AKA Lizzy the Lizard and occasionally Daisy). Yes we couldn't make up our minds yet. Mushu is a "nickname" but not her "real" name. The kids are still hammering out the details.  She is 3 months old today! She's still pretty little (the runt of the clutch) and has some growing to do. She got home today and took a little nap in the corner, and now is out and about exploring her new home. She seems pretty happy with it so far. The girls are nuts over her. We had to run to the pet store for a couple of things and of course had to come right home afterwards because they were worried about leaving her home alone. Then they sat down in front of the cage on their benches and watched her while she napped. Of course, now that she is moving around, the girls are outside and missing the whole thing. I'm sure they'll get plenty of time with her tomorrow though. Today is just a leave her along to get comfortable day (after some small handling). Looking forward to some interesting observations about her from the kids.
