Ahahahaha. Clever name, eh? Yah, roll your eyes at me. I couldn't think of anything better. :paranoid:

Zayne was sitting on Maxie's computer monitor a week or so ago and I gave him a cricket and got the camera out. Snapped a few shots and didn't think anything of it until a little while ago when I was taking pics of the rats for my journal. I REALLY like how this one turned out. Focus could be a tiiiiny bit better but, damn, this photo makes me happy. :D

Zayne is..... *blinks* Apparently I just added an "e" to the end of his name. It was Zayn, but I keep adding it. I think I like it. Anyhow... Zayn is a Chinese Water Dragon, for the curious. Although he's awesome, I DO NOT recommend Water Dragons to the inexperienced. Several people have expressed a desire to buy one after seeing pics of Zayne, so here's my disclaimer.

Water Dragons need 75-95% humidity. This is VERY hard to maintain. They are very active and get pretty big, so even in the first few months of thier lives, they need a large cage. The temperatures need to be between 84-88F during the day (about 8 cooler at night) with a basking spot in the 90's. They can live 10-20 years. If you have the time and money for all that, and still want one, you need to do a lot of research on your own to make sure you're able to care for one. This is a pretty good site: [link]

Used to have one of these myself....amazing pets! :)

Incidentally mine was a male and I had to part with him after 3 years.... A long story but it was an ex-girlfriend that made the choice for me. I gave him to a breeder who said he was the finest specimen he had ever seen..... He did have amazing colouring but I had special lighting.... I used to keep a spray bottle handy to give him a daily bath but never found too much of a problem in keeping either Viv temperature or humidity at the recommended norms.

This image looks as though it may be a femal given the light green colouring... but looks old enough to be on mice as well as Locusts.... Healthy looking though! :)

S/he was a lot of fun. I gave her away last year though, since my attention was turning more toward amphibians.

Wow, I see teeth. :0

Question: Do they bite you? I jsut wanted to know, since I'm planning on getting one whe I'm older.

My dragon never bit, but it would be best to be careful. I did hand feed him a few times, but that's probably when you might get bit. Mine was never aggressive, but he loved his food. ;)

Great picture, and thanks for adding that info about water dragons. I've been wanting to get one(because I'm getting into exotics), but didn't really know much. So that helped a great deal. ^_^

he looks super.
i was going to get a chinese water dragon, but i decided to get two iguanas first. I love my one, he's such a doll, but my other one is a big jerk.

anyways, nice shot! :D
