One-year-old bearded dragon Rikoss is the pride and joy of Jacqueline Carr.

The “cheeky girl”, as Jacqueline calls her, is a wonderful addition to the Denny family, who decided to get a bearded dragon last August. Rikoss spends much of her time in a vivarium for heat, but she has the run of the house and wants out all the time. She eats a selection of live food, including crickets, roaches and worms, which Jacqueline admits she has to feed to her with tongs because she’s such a scaredy cat.
