It’s the Chinese New Year—the Year of the Dragon, traditionally considered by the Chinese to be prosperous and lucky. We’ve got a couple of residents who are really celebrating: the Chinese Water Dragon and our Bearded Dragons.
When I first heard we had dragons here at The Animal Store, I was a little freaked out. Let me tell you, those Harry Potter books did nothing to enhance the reps of our friends the Chinese Water Dragon and the Beardies. They’re great guys, seriously, and kind of beautiful, in their own reptilian way. And the fire breathing—pure myth.
