Nicholas, or Nico as we call him, came to the foundation in the beginning of December 2019. He had a squished, necrotic hand that had to be removed. Luckily, it came off cleanly, and the vet said that he was otherwise healthy and should grow up fine, even without the one hand.

Growing up in the foundation

We got Nico when he was only about a month old and very tiny. Over the months, we have got to watch him growing up in the foundation. He moves around great, even without is one hand and is such a cute dragon.

Nico is a little skittish at being handled, which can be normal for a dragon of his age. Over time, we expect that he will start to calm down and be just as adorable as an adult.
