Lizards are hugely charming! Beardies are very affectionate as well, so it’s not hard to fall in love. I’m guessing you got him about 2 months ago and then needed to take him home when the schools closed. Pretty soon you may want one all for yourself that stays home all the time! There is another teacher entering the contest for this month and she has had great fun getting students to participate. The more students that give a critter gold, the more likely you are to win. Perhaps the kids would get a kick out of helping out and it would give them something to do and a way to contribute to Big D’s welfare from the safety of their home computer.
