Hi! My name is Slate because I came in grey with a purple flare.
I was found as a stray, taken to the shelter, and then transferred to the rescue to help me first recover and then find my forever home. We suspect that the purple ink on my scales and my swollen arms that are now better were a result of someone leaving a lizard leash/harness on me for a very long time. My arms are good as new now and all of the purple came off with time with the first ched at the rescue, yay!. The vet gave me the all-clear!
Fun Fact about me! I am full of energy, quicker than you would think, and love to explore! We aren't sure of my age but I am a happy and healthy adult who would love to just hang out with you!
My foster family says 'Slate loves to eat - shredded carrots, bell peppers, basil, berries, and especially mealworms. He's loving the socialization at the adoption events too.'
As an adult, I eat 15% protein, 80 veggies, and 5% fruits. 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 :)

The bearded dragon is probably the most popular pet lizard by virtue of it having more of a personality than most other lizards. Beardies are widely captive bred and their care requirements are easily established given the right information. Beardies come from very hot regions of Australia and like it hot. Beardies eat insects and plant material and are usually very hardy feeders.
