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.
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!

What a fabulous idea!
I think you might start a new trend!
Unfortunately the only person I know with lizards, has Geckos. These are just a bit too small to fit a funky vest (though some bright colours would make the spotting easier)

Just saw a bearded lizard the other day.  I had no idea they had such interesting personalities!  The robe is such a great idea!
