We got a new pet...we got a new pet...we got a new girl, and she's soooooooooooooooooo cute.
Argus monitor. Her kind is from Australia. We got her at our local pet store because her previous owner was going to college. She still has no name, but she sure is a little princess. She thinks she's a little dragon. I've never seen a monitor act so much like a little dragon.
That's my old man's eye there in the back.
She's about two feet long, and we'll get like twice that size. At the store, they told us she didn't eat dead food, that she was only a killer. He got her to eat a big gobbet of hamburger. She barely hesitated. And she loves the crap out of frozen mice.
Only problem: she's a lizard that needs lots of heat, and we just had a cold snap. She's in the room without heating. Poor babydoll may need to be moved.
But, well, precious baby dragon!
