Bearded Dragon In Skokie, IL Has Lost Its Owner
May 26, 2015
A bearded dragon found at a golf course in Skokie, IL will go up for adoption June 22 if the owner doesn’t come forward to claim him. Caddy, as his rescuers has named him, is a more than a foot long and is very healthy, according to Skokie Animal Control, which picked the lizard up and took him to Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue, where he is currently housed.
She was very well loved, and I’m sure somebody’s missing her,” Erica Mede, founder of Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue told CBS2 Chicago. “If you met her, you’d fall in love with her.”

Bearded dragons are one of the most popular pet lizards due in part to their great demeanors and relative ease of care with the proper setup. They are widely bred in captivity and hail from Australia.
