“He was extremely tiny,” Law told The Dodo. “He was smaller than the rest of the bearded dragons there [in other tanks], so we checked online what newborns look like. He was that exact size; he was likely being sold too early.”
In general, young bearded dragons should only be rehomed after around 6 weeks old — but little Kayto was much younger. The couple took him home without another thought, determined to help him grow big and strong.
It was clear that Kayto was stressed, but Law worked every day to help him come out of his shell.
