My family and I purchased a new pet this year, and though my wife Angie has owned a few lizards in her past, but this is my first. Having owned an Iguana and for a short time a Chameleon, Angie is quite accustom to the fact that lizards like to climb things. Now I must freely admit that I know this as well, but, WELL, sometimes you just can not prepare yourself for where you might happen to find you lizard HANGING OUT. Our bearded dragon "Lizzie" is now about 7 months old and nearly 16 inches long. Lizzie enjoys running around the house and can be quite comical in her (my daughter insists Lizzie is a girl and she is the one who chose the name) antics and earlier today she spent a great deal of time chasing an escapee "Chirping" cricket that had been driving us all a bit nuts since just before Christmas. This year we decided to set up our small Christmas tree as the new pets tank (a 30 gallon aquarium) is currently occupying the spot in which the tree normally rests. After being out for about 3 hours and in sight most of the time, she went missing. Normally when this happens, Lizzie can be found near the top of the screen on the patio door leading to the back deck. NOPE, not today. The kids and I spent about half an hour scouring the house searching for the vanishing lizard, knowing that she would appear sooner or later when she became hungry (she always comes back to her cage when she is hungry) and we found Lizzie in the most unusual place. Apparently Lizzie is also a big fan of Christmas and she really has a thing for stars. WHAT IS THE STRANGEST THING YOU HAVE EVER FOUND IN YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE?? She started on the floor and somehow managed to get up on the end table beside the couch that the Christmas tree was sitting on and up she went, quiet as a mouse. Now I have seen everything. A little holiday cheer AND something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
