This is a picture of Stubbs, my younger son’s bearded dragon lizard when she was younger and smaller. (Please excuse the slightly messy countertop, as I think she enjoyed a bath just before this scene.) Here, she has just received a wonderful new gift… a (fake) ant hill. My son loaded it with crickets from the pet store, and Stubbs is munching them down when they crawl out. There is a stopper in the foreground, which plugs the hole, to save some snacks for later.
If you could have any pet in the world, what would it be? (Please don’t say crickets, as then I would have to feel really sorry about feeding them to Stubbs.) What would you like to give your pet, so he or she enjoys living in your habitat? Write out your story and send it to me. 🙂
