My Story: Blue was raised from a hatchling and donated to us after his elderly owner passed away. He is very accustomed to being held by caregivers and is very loving and playful. He has a 200 word vocabulary and loves to tell guests, "I wanna come out now" and "I wanna cracker." He will also say, "Hola, gimme five" and hold up his foot.
