Everybody say welcome to Lefty our new adopted baby.

if you look close you can see his bad leg curled up under him.
Lefty is a Bearded Dragon who came into the store with a bum leg.  The vet said it was probably broken and healed wrong.  He still gets around great though I feed him is crickets in a smaller tank so they can't run away.  He also eats meal-worms and vegetables.  He will get any where from 12 to 18 inches long.  Normally I would use one of the reusable reptile carpets they sell in the store but his nails get caught and with  out his other leg he has a hard time unsticking himself.  So he is on calcium sand instead.  These are one of them most mellow lizards I have encountered and are perfect for first time lizard owners.  Though a lot of people balk at their larger size the smaller lizards are a lot faster and less likely to want to hang out with you. He's pretty cool and I think he will like nice warm Florida.
