I'm not normally one to dress up animals (except for when the winter winds blow and the dog needs a coat!), but in this case I think putting a bathrobe on my mountain horned dragon for about 20 minutes after bath-time is justified. Tammy (the lizard) is going through her shedding phase and soaking in warm water helps to loosen the dead scales, but keeping in the warmth and humidity by wearing a bathrobe really speeds up the process so she can get back to being her lizardy self sooner! Her robe (more like a vest) is made from fleece and has snaps to hold it shut. Here she is modeling her new after-bath look:

That is so awesome!
I personally don't see it as being a bathrobe so much as a kick ass robot costume...
Like is this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330888.0 were to be made into a costume...

Aww, thanks!! Not only is she super cute (and a robot), but she works in rehab centres and childrens hospital wards as a therapy animal, Tammy is pretty much an angel.

I've never told anyone that they have a cute reptile before, but Tammy is adorable.  I have a slight fear of scaly things, but she is much more approachable with her bathrobe on.  The heart is a good addition so we know her gender, too.  I love that she is a therapy animal.

Awesome! She looks cute in her little bathrobe.  My Water Dragon would probably hide from me if I made her a little bathrobe to wear.  Wink  Usually when shedding I use olive oil to help remove most of the skin but now I'll be tempted to make her a tiny little bathrobe.

Does she scratch at it while wearing it?

I use olive oil too, and sometimes organic vitamin E oil (for some reason it makes her more green), but she's free ranging (she runs around my house like a cat) so she always ends up covered in dust when I rub her down with oil, so the bathrobe is a nice addition. She doesn't scratch at it at all, I think she might even like it! I didn't do it up the first few times I put it on her and she didn't climb out of it, she just napped. Tonight she is using it as a pillow, soooo cute!

Ahhh that is cute! I love lizards and I'm always tempted to make something for mine so I like this idea. My husband makes fun of me for rubbing olive oil on my dragon.  Smiley  He says it looks like I'm getting ready to cook her.

Wow... Your lizard is WAY too cute. We used to have bearded dragons. Tongue I love lizards! She's free ranging?? Wow! How big is she? I'd figure she'd get lost. O.o Our lizards were pretty small. I LOVE the heart applique, and the color of the fleece really looks nice against her scales. Cheesy

She's free ranging indeed! She was about 16 inches until she broke her tail while ferociously digging an egg nest, now she's about 12 inches. She's only been lost once, and it was when she was first introduced to the free-range lifestyle (she turned up in my laudry bin), but now she mostly just sticks to her trees and bamboo teepee. Sometimes she gets to dig in the garden too!

I have a Bearded Dragon myself, so I understand exactly what you mean about the shedding. He hates bath time, so it is a constant struggle to get him into the water without him clinging to my arm like a wuss, but he always emerges so happy and pleased with the way his skin sheds easier. Silly dragon!

I love the robe! Adorable and dashing! I have made harnesses for Dante (my Bearded Dragon) before, but he usually puffs up and turns black if I make him wear one...

I think this is the first time I've seen clothing made for a lizard.  Doesn't seem like she minds it either.  So cute!
