Aww, he is so lovely! Are you growing to grow grass (or other plants) in the holes in those bricks? I think that is a very clever idea, because Speedy could eat the grass once it was a bit established and was sticking up out of the holes, but maybe couldn't destroy it completely. I think I might use that idea in my tort's table.

Oh my, what a sight -- great photos! Is the big lizard yours too (forgive me as I'm not good at species ID on lizards -- lol I'm not even good at species IDs on tortoises!). What species is he -- he's gorgeous!

She is my nearly 5 yr old Bearded Dragon...her name is Jesus because she was my miracle, I'd always wanted one but could never afford a decent set-up, so my family got together for my 35th birthday and raised funds! we couldn't sex her straight away but attitude wise assumed she was male... then Christmas before last I woke up to find her 1st batch of eggs, so knew for def she was a girl lol. I have a mini zoo really dog, cat, hamster, Guinea pig, tropical and goldfish, beardie and not forgetting the torts :D

What a handsome Beardie! She is lovely and looks so healthy -- but the thought that Jesus laid eggs sort of boggles the mind! Alll the creatures in your mini zoo are so lucky to have found you Bex!

PMSL -- yes, stick with Jesus, it's a brill name. By the way, do you pronounce it the English way (geezus), or the Spanish way (haysoos)? The Spanish way does have a sort of flair to it :lol: :lol:
