Name: Athena
Gender: Female

Athena's Song

One week, so short,
And you were gone
Yet in that time
I loved so strong
That you'll live on
Within my heart and mind,
And in this song.

Love at first sight!
Your eyes met mine,
Your hands reached out,
"I need your care."
So mine was thine
And it is still although
You are not there.

Your scales were brown,
To me like mail;
Your eyes, in mine,
Held human light;
Your slender tail
When 'cross my arm--far more
Than charms delight!

And though you passed,
Perhaps of age,
You were so sweet
That if I could
Go back a page
And take you home again
Or not, I would!

But this sweet dream's
A selfish thing
Perhaps for I
Too long for peace
And that sweet bliss
And stillness where you are
Of sweet release.

You're gone, my love,
And can't return
To my regret.
But know before
The ground is churned
That once I loved a man
Yet loved you more!

Background: Bought at a reptile expo in very good condition early '09. Died within two weeks. I suspect of stress. Calotes are definently not a lizard for beginners. If you aquire a Calote, give it a lot of space and refrain from touching or disturbing it at least for the first few weeks.

Name: Trayton
Gender: Male
Species: Bahaman Anole
Background: Wild-caught. A friend gave him to me. He was an adult when I got him around 2004,
Extra: Trayton was named after a dragon in a story I was writing at the time.

He was a great and quick hunter!

He must have lost part of his tail before I got him because part of it was regenerated.

I think it is amazing how much you can get attached to a pet you'd never held and who constantly glared at you when you went to say good morning.

I know that I am missing various reptiles and amphibians I've cared for on this list, but many of these I only cared for for short times, were released back into the wild, or were one of many toads that I never got around to naming.

Still, I remember them all.
