2016-01-14 08:10   T.Rex Jr.

Y (Kuma's owner)

There are various types of animals that come to my yard. Mostly they are some kinds of birds or marsupials. The reason I wrote "Mostly" is because another type of creature is also coming, reptiles.

The poisonous snakes are one of the dangerous species in Australia, but luckily the reptiles that come to my yard aren't snakes. They are Bearded Dragons. The size isn't so big, between 30 to 40cm from the tip of nose to the tip of the tail. To me, before coming to Australia, a lizard whose size was more than 30cm was big enough, but I got used to the bigger size lizards now.

My friend sees Goannas that grow up to 2.5m in the back yard. Comparing with a Goanna, Bearded Dragon are much smaller and cuter. I gave them a nickname " T. Rex Jr.".

T. Rex Jr. is mild-mannered and has no wariness. Even if I walk in front of him, he doesn't care. My neighbour said they eat fruits from hands. It was surprising because the impression of their stern face and eating fruits doesn't match. On cold days of winter, they enjoy sunbathing. They are as still as ornaments. I sometimes see them on the driveway when I come home. Even though the car comes in front of him, he doesn't move. So, I get out of the car and say "Excuse me, Mr T.Rex Jr., would you move, please?"

He is tough-looking but peaceful. I love the gap between his looks and characteristics.
