Yes, we have a granddaughter and grandson and two granddoggies. We are blessed and in love with them all. A new addition to the family has arrived. It’s a bearded dragon. His name is Yogi. On our drive back to Vermont on Sunday, we spoke to our grandson from our SUV, and he from his daddy’s new SUV. He won his hockey game and was on the way to pick up his birthday present from dad. Dad wasn’t too happy about this gift, but the rest of the family is. Yogi now has over 250 followers on TikTok. We are trying very hard to love our new addition to the family.

I wouldn't buy it either, but it's something my grandson wants us to see. I hope he doesn't make me touch it.

@DianneN I would not like to touch it, there are animals that I do not want to touch. Good luck.

@LadyDuck Thanks! I need all the luck I can get. My grandson already knows I fear snakes and spiders, so he won't force it on me if I start screaming.

@Tina30219 I saw my granddaughter feeding it. First she filled his huge dish with some water, added fresh greens to it, some pellets, live crickets, and something that looked like live grubs to me. Ewwww!

As long as it does not bite it would be ok with me but not with the cats I am sure they would want to play with it. Cute little guy.

The poor little dragon has a beautiful ventilated glass home in the basement far away from the dogs. They would love to sink their teeth into it.

@DianneN they can get anywhere from 18inches to 22 inches maybe a little smaller or bigger. Ours is probably about 15 inches.

@DianneN I had the opportunity to hold a bearded dragon in my hand ... but I would never take it as a pet, I'm not a fan of reptiles p.s Pay attention to his leg, keeping me from falling

Wow! You are so brave to hold it. He needs a shave. I would never allow it in my house, but they seem kind to keep people from falling.

@DianneN Well, yes, that's how it looks in the photo, I literally didn't breathe so I wouldn't scare him, because then his chin swells and changes color ... he can stare at me and it was only about 20 seconds

@LowRiderX 20 seconds would be too long for me. I hope my grandson doesn't make me hold it. I will if I have to, but prefer not to. Maybe I can give it a pet on the head and run away.

Congratulations and hello to Yogi ! We are still thinking about whether to get my son a reptilian roommate or not . . . it would easily "somehow" get lost in his room . . . just like any of his missing pieces to things or socks . Enjoy your new granddragon!

Little Yogi is adapting well to his glassed in home in the basement. The only reason our grandson was able to get Yogi was that he promised to keep him in the basement away from the dogs.
