    Cricket Contest – June 2019 Winner!

    This is Loken, my first reptile ever. He loves people, exploring, and crickets! At first I was very nervous but he is very happy and healthy.

    I actually got him at PetSmart! He was the most colorful and curious one there.

    I agree, he is quite lovely.  What made you decide to get into reptile owning?  And why a beardie in particular?

    I wanted an indoor pet but I’m allergic to most things furry lol. I needed something that I could interact with, not a fish, and a bird is typically too noisy. I looked up some videos about beardies and thought they would be perfect! And thank you for the compliment!

      Agree 100% that beardies are perfect pets.  He looks VERY active in your pics.  Do you ever let him explore the great outdoors?

    Sounds like you made a thoughtful decision about acquiring this pet.  IMHO that is a much more sensible and ethical way to go about acquiring an animal companion than seeing one in the petstore and ‘falling in love’.  And nervousness is good!  It keeps people from becoming complacent about their pet’s well being.  What was it about beardies in particular that appealed to you instead of, say, a gecko or chameleon?
