Nothing like newborns to bring a family together, no matter where you live.
"She's wonderfully perfect, my Dear," said Dad.
"The most perfect offspring we've ever had.
The other ninety just don't compare
To the scaly delight beside you there.
The four little eyes seem grotesque, that's true,
But they'll turn orange from that ghastly blue.
Her claws are sharp, and what lovely scales,
She even has stripes on one of her tails,
And her cute huge nose is spewing slime,
She'll be spitting acid in no time.
Let me hold her now, my Love, my Pet,
The most beautiful life form we've had yet."
