MooShu and Draco, Bearded Dragons

MooShu, Ari's guest this summer, is her teacher's Bearded Dragon and we are hosting him this summer. He and Draco below (in a separate enclosure because you do not want two males in one area) eat romaine, parsley, cilantro, mustard greens, bok choy and kale as their staples, with blueberries, bananas, mango, papaya and apples as other daily nibbles. Both get dragon crunchies, vitamin spray and powdered calcium and they lounge under uv lights and real sunlight at least half the day. They get weekly soaks in warm water and daily backrubs. Seriously spoiled little creatures. Baby dragons like to eat little crickets.

Draco sleeps under a "blankie"--a washcloth.
