Hi. Everyone!!!! This afternoon i nearly had a Bearded Dragon run up my leg i didn't see it as he was a little one and it gave me the biggest freight i ever had and mum was laughing at me i was nearly hanging off the roof it got half way up my leg oh boy did i do the highland fling lucky he didn't bite me... Indigo was inside when this was happening.. I didnt think it was funny at the time but mum did she said it was so funny seeing the dragon nearly up my leg.. It will teach me to look where i am going in the backyard... Then mum got a bowl and caught some live bugs and cockroaches for him for dinner Yack i wouldn't like to eat them for dinner but the Dragon loved them and wanted more.. Hear is the Dragon that nearly ran half way up my leg... Teach me to look where i am going next time...

Our Resident Pet Bearded Dragon... Summer is here..

I would freak out too, if I had one of those creeping up on me! :eek:
They're nice to look at and possibly are friendly creatures, but in my case I'm good with just the pictures or watching them from afar. I'm not much of a reptile person. :)

Kate beat me to it Lyn, I love the picture of the dragon he is a beauty but I agree with you I wouldn't want to eat cockroaches YUCK:)
It was fun watching him run for the Cockroaches he was so very fast and the cockroach didn't have a chance for the Dragon's mouth.. Glad that you liked the photo's of the Dragon. Oh i am glad that the Dragon didn't have Indigo for dinner that would be terrible...

Bearded dragons are awesome, I love them. They sell them here in pet stores for about $60 a piece. They make great pets, but they are high maintenance. you have to have a lamp, calcium powder, crickets, a big tank... Funny you guys have them in your own backyard, LOL

They have the Dragon's for sale in the shops here to but you have to have a permit to own one i think... We dont have to buy one to keep as we have them in our backyard and we can feed them and they get really friendly.. Glad that you liked the photo's

Especially the Queensland Cockroaches Cathy. They can be really really big.

We have wild Bearded Dragons down here too. Don't have them in my backyard but occassionally see them around the roads. And I often have to remove the odd turtle off the road so they don't get run over by cars. They don't more very quickly when crossing the road. I have a couple of resident Blue Tongue Lizards here. Love having them around as they eat all the snails and slugs. But they are only in my backyard, don't have any snails there, but I have them in the front yard.

Oh Lyn, that reminded me so much of Florida when I was down there. I am not into any thing creepy crawly. I was standing on the front step at my sister's apartment and a tree-sucker frog jumped up on my bare leg. I ran into the house screaming, my cat went nuts, I swatted the thing off my leg, it landed on the back of a plastic chair, slid down to the floor, the cat chasing it, me freaking out because I didn't want the cat to eat the thing. To make a long story short we (my sister) collected the frog (who was daised and i'm sure had a miserable headache by this time back outdoors and things returned to "normal". Needless to say, I prefer living in Wisconsin!:)

I really don't see them Lyn. Only a few times. One time I did see him he was hiding under my hot water service when a repair man came to fix it. Scared the living daylights out of him as you could not see the legs and it looked like a snake. I just know they are there because of the lack of snails which are abundant in my front yard.

Mum has been tricked with the legless Lizards she misplaced it for a Snake If she finds one ill post a photo of one.. We don't get snakes at our house very often only once we had a tree snake come past the front door lucky it didn't see Indigo but snakes can't get in our house. The dragon was waiting again on the pond in the back yard yesterday sunning himself waiting for mum to catch him some bugs etc..
