Our class has two bearded dragon lizards. They have been a part of Mrs. Abernethy's class for a long time.

Thunder is our most active bearded dragon lizard. He is quite feisty and he gets real worked up when he sees Lightning. His beard puffs, he turns black and if he has the chance, he goes into attack mode. He and his sister Lightning were born in the spring of 2007. They got along at first, but when they got older Thunder bit Lightning's tail off. Then we had to separate them.

Lightning is a girl bearded dragon lizard. She is the smaller and a bit more mellow.

Most of the students have their favorite, but all in all, the lizards are well loved pets in the classroom. They are gentle with people, but beware if you are a grasshopper or a cricket!
