Scales and All




This is Dad. He is a Shingleback Lizard from Australia. He's very relaxed and not at all bothered by people coming up and touching him, he kind of feels like you fingernails do.


These two are water dragons, also from Australia. The stacked appearance was not something I have seen before.


The facials are priceless.

  1. Holding a shingleback must have been quite an experience. Amazing, quilt-like skin. And how adorable are those water dragons.
