About Baby Drako the Dragon
Yes, Drako is real, although the wings are cloth and strapped on – but don’t tell Baby Drako that! He is a male Yellow Bearded Dragon that is very mellow with kids and just likes to hang out in Raleigh’s Exotic Animal and Magic Show. He was hatched in 2021 and now is fully grown and about 18+ inches. Kerry “KC” Cameron (Captain Kid) adopted him in 2023.
Captain Kid uses Drako in a magic routine and the kids can pose for pictures and pet him at the end of the show. Both Jax and Drako are very mellow and the ONLY exotics in Raleigh that go to parties that can be held and petted by kids. Rabbits can be more dangerous! The kids go crazy over him and even parents are often intrigued. You child will thank you for letting Drako, Jax , and Captain Kid come and visit!
About Bearded Dragons
Bearded Dragons are considered the “dogs” of the reptile world and are the most popular reptile to keep as a pet. They are possibly the most easy-going and relaxed in the reptile world. They are amongst the easiest to leash train, and will even casually allow their owners to dress them in clothing. They are very friendly and laid back and like to hang around. With persistence, you can get them to come when they are called and do simple tricks.
Dragons can grow up to 24″, but Baby Drako is only about 18″. No, he is not a baby, but dragons of myth are huge, so in comparison Baby Drako is small. Baby Drako is two years old, but he can live for up to 15 years or more in captivity.
Bearded Dragons originally come from the deserts of central Australia, although Baby Drako was hatched in Fayetteville. They were introduced as pets in the US in the 1990s. Baby Drako eats vegetables, greens, leaves, fruit, flowers, and insects, and even small rodents..Bearded dragons are called Bearded” because of the spiny projections under their necks that resemble a beard. When threatened or excited, they puff out their beards and open their mouths to make themselves look bigger.
Dragons can take naps for even more than two weeks, then get up and on with business. Talk about an easy life!
