    Hello from Houston-Texas.
    I am a middle school science teacher who has been teaching long enough to know the tricks of the trade.
    I have been considering a classroom pet for my 7th graders for about a year now. Concerning possible allergic reactions from students, I eliminated almost all furry mammals and gravitated towards reptiles. After many days of internet surfing, decided that my students and I need a bearded dragon in our lives. Since then (this was about two months ago) I am reading everything I can find about bearded dragons and as you can imagine getting more and more excited about the new addition to my classroom.
    I am in the process of setting the enclosure and hopefully in about two weeks we will acquire a dragon.
    I am learning a lot from this forum and appreciate everyone who share their wisdom.
