I own a Chinese Water Dragon right now, and I would love a lizard like yours too :) Have fun with her!
Thank you! She's full of attitude too! I don't know much about Chinese Water Dragons, what type of lizard are they? Are they as they are named, in water, or are they land dwellers?

Depending on the bloodlines they can get past 2 feet long from nose to tail tip and require a 100+ gallon tank for living space. If you're lucky they can live 10-15 years too.
When they are young(under a year old) they eat 60% insects(live crickets, etc) and 40% veggies, and once they are fully mature they eat 40% insects and 60% veggies.
They are supposed to be solitary creatures. Having a tank mate stresses them out and often one of them is scared of the other and they don't eat. Some people keep two+ to a tank, and it's not a wise thing to do.
