Rupert, The Bearded Dragon

Rupert is a bearded dragon. He's my new best friend.

Rupert

When we were first introduced, his beard puffed up and had turned a darker colour, which is what he does when he's wary. He can look pretty mean when he wants to.

Rupert

Pretty soon, though, he was sneaking in for a closer look.

Rupert

He smells with his tongue, so I ended up getting sticky, bearded dragon tongue licks on my knuckles.

Rupert

I think he has a crush on me.

Rupert

Guess what? Bearded dragon butt.
