Oh, he's beautiful! What a sweetie. When you said he tries to eat socks, at first I thought you meant the ones that go on your feet! I was thinking, "That can't be very good for him!" LOL For those who want to know more about Water Dragons there is a good web site here: http://www.waterdragon.org.uk/

Beautiful! Just be careful when he is out of his terrarium. My sister had two iguanas. Two weeks ago she left the sliding door to the deck open so that the dógs and cats could run in and out. One of the iguanas got out of her cage and also went out in the backyard, and ate some flowers (dandelions and violets, at the very least), which killed her.

The one she has left is now five, and pretty big. She's the friendly one - she likes people, dogs and cats (no, she doesn't try to eat the cats; I wouldn't say this in front of the kids, but it's the body heat she likes - they think she's affectionate). She loves to climb the cat tree and to sit on people's heads, though that's not always pleasant, because her claws are sharp, and she has a tendency to "dig in". She was 4 or 5 inches long when my nephew brought her home, and is now over 3 feet long. The one that died was older, bigger, and vicious at times (she thrashed with her tail and bit, and the dogs and cats gave her a wide berth). My sister got her from a co-worker about a year ago. The woman had to get rid of her because she'd bitten the woman's son's finger off - the son was just a toddler. Neither one of them was difficult to feed (iguana mix and fresh vegetables, whereby Romaine lettuce beats out everything else), but my sister's s.o. ended up making two huge cages for them, complete with heat lamps and tree limbs, which take up all of the dining area. The two couldn't be kept together. My brother was always into exotic pets, including lots of reptiles, so my sister knew what she was getting into.
Three years ago, one of my students brought her iguana (huge) into school to show everybody. During my class, she let him "run" around (more like scrabble and crawl), since she knew I didn't mind, and he promptly attached himself to my leg. I was standing at the board teaching when my boss came in to ask me something, and when she saw this huge lizard hanging on my jeans, her eyes positively bugged out. She was speechless at first, and then managed, "Mrs. B., why is Godzilla in your classroom?" I was hoping she wouldn't notice.

thats awful about that little boys finger,but thats what happens if they get bought from someone who doesnnt know much about them, these creatures need to be tamed from very young otherwise they can b aggressive .
my waterdragon has accounted his nasty habit of jumping up my face(leaving rather unattractive scratches ) to get on my head, he will also sit on me for hours for the warmth, but i love him
