Hi! My name is Nubs, for obvious reasons :)

My previous person decided that they could no longer take care of me so they surrendered me to the shelter. Because of my special needs, the shelter transferred me to the rescue.

At the rescue, I have helped to educate people about why I am the way I am so that others do not end up like me. Needless to say, I am very special and loved dearly by the rescue members but now it’s my turn to retire and find my forever home. Is it with you?

My new home will need to make sure that I am safe and able to accommodate for my differences from other dragons. Don’t get me wrong, I am one tough cookie and I have no idea that I am different, but I am.

For example, I cannot hang on to your shoulder like other dragons as most all of my claws are missing so I will always need to be supported but in all other aspects, I am perfectly capable of all things!

How did this happen you ask? We don’t know for sure, but evidence shows I was most likely housed with others when I was a baby and we were not fed properly.

I was also possibly burned or injured from an inappropriate enclosure setup. We know I was on dyed sand that had all of my scales blocked and stained red when I came in. That prevented me from absorbing moisture to stay hydrated. Sand is a no-no – but don’t worry - the rescue has all the information you need to make sure I stay happy and healthy in your home.

Needless to say, I have been treated like royalty since I arrived at the rescue and I am looking for a forever home that is willing to do the same.

As an adult, I eat 15% protein, 80 veggies, and 5% fruits. My diet hasn't been the best so I am still learning to like my veggies and greens. Don't worry, the rescue will show you all of the tricks to help me get there. I am also still on the smaller side so a few extra bugs would do me well too!

I require my own habitat as we do best housed individually from my age forward. With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life. Don't worry, the rescue will provide you with all of the information that you will need to prepare for my arrival :)
