Hamster and Komodo Dragon With Cookies
Our sons are entranced by the idea of Komodo dragons. I'm not sure the reality would be so appealing. Our older son did a class project on Komodos last year and is still a self-proclaimed authority. His younger brother's interest was suddenly revived yesterday, leading to a request.
I felt inexplicably compelled to include Fluffy. Briefly, I contemplated some sort of lion taming pose, taking advantage of the often pictured gaping Komodo maw, but decided I did not want to be accused of imperiling the celebrity Hamster.
I posed Fluffy away from the Dragon maw, and gave her a vegetarian food offering to hold, trying to keep her from looking too much like a tasty morsel herself.
Below, a gaping Komodo, ready to swallow a Hamster and then some.
