This is what a fierce dragon looks like when he is trying to scare you. It is called "displaying" in dragon lingo. The dragon will puff out his cheeks to look big and mean.
This week my former student Sophie and her mom went to Petland and purchased a new "Spikey" for the lab. What a gift! He is so little that I have to be very careful that he doesn't hop out of my hand. He seems to love crickets and his "plumbing" is working very well (a good indicator of dragon health).
This is Lauren. She comes in on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to help me care for the lab. She is very good with dragons and loves to spend time hand taming them. Science Labs really need people like this because teachers are often too busy to sit and play with all the animals. Lauren in invaluable to our lab!

Now I need to make sure that the other kids in the class
don't get jealous.
