LIVELY LIZARDS

IMG_3757 IMG_3817 IMG_3762 IMG_3812

Spent the weekend checking out Repticon Atlanta – a reptile exposition heavily attended by those like me who follow exotic pet shows.  I was elated by the opportunity to dialog with and learn from top breeders and educators about reptiles and amphibians in live animal encounters – especially the hourly seminars.  I will share some of these exotic “friends” I met.  Please stay tuned to future posts for up close glimpses.  First one up:  the star of the show and a favorite of my sister – the bearded dragon.  We learned that adult bearded dragons are very territorial.  The beard is used for mating and aggressive behavior.  Head bobbing and arm waving are other traits of this well known lizard.

What a fascinating event it was!
