My first reptile

I cant believe i got my first reptile 17 years ago when i was 16 years old. A chinese water dragon that was from a pet shop in a mall. Now looking back can not believe these guys were being sold there as they are definitely intermediate level care. Although i was young and new to reptiles i still did extensive research and cared for him appropriately. I named him Bubbles because he loved playing with the bubbles from his fountain on the water side of his tank. These guys are incredible lizards. I miss my guy :lizard:


What a sweet memory. Good for you and great for Bubbles that you did right by him. That’s not an easy species for an introduction to reptiles. Bubbles is very cute.

Thank you! These guys are hard to find now as pets and maybe thats for the best for them.


I hate to say it, but it probably is best for them. Bubbles was lucky to find you!


Aaawwwwww, he looks so sweet. :face_holding_back_tears: That’s cute that he liked to play with bubbles, I’d love to watch that! XD
