Hi! My name is Groot! Best name ever in my opinion ;)

I was surrendered to the rescue because my previous family didn't have enough time for me due to life changes. Unfortunately, this means that I am now looking for my forever home for the 3rd time. But I just know that this time I will find my forever home!

Fun fact about me! I am a leatherback, which means that I am smooth to the touch! I came to the rescue with a mild case of MBD. This means that though I am a happy, healthy normal dragon, I need little help eating, especially my bugs. It's easy and kind of nice to have the company :)

Don't worry bout my MBD, the rescue has worked hard to stop its progression and with the help of my new family providing what I need, I will stay as healthy and happy as I am now. Oh, I almost forgot, I am a leatherback dragon, which means I am soft to the touch!

I love to be with my people, bask in the sun (supervised), and get plenty of exercise.. As a beardie, I require my own habitat as we do best housed individually. With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life of up to 12 to 14 years! We are not sure of my age as I have already been in 2 homes that gave me up :( What we do know is that I am a happy, healthy full-grown adult that will be around for quite a long time.

I do not like to be around other reptiles. If I can see them or smell them I am very unhappy. Being the dragon of your eye is my dream!

My age determines what I eat! I currently need to eat 20% protein and 75% veggies and 5% fruit. Basically, a good salad topped with a few bugs for flavor. I was not fed the right foods in my previous home so I am still working on getting used to greens but I am doing better and better with each feeding. Check out this website to learn more >
