Monty, the Cuddly Cat
Nessy, the Bearded Dragon
Nessy is a beautiful, yellow coloured Bearded Dragon. It is called “bearded” because of the dragon’s ability to flare out the skin in the throat region when it is threatened.
Nessy is diurnal which means he tends to sleep in the dark and hunt for food in the daylight. He is also an omnivore which means he can eat plant material and other animals.
Nessy is a pet so his owners provide him with live crickets to eat. He looks quite spikey and prickly but when we touched him we found that his skin is actually rather soft.
