I've made a bearded dragon, to roam the wilderness of your desktop. 

He'll run laps of the screen, sit on the taskbar, hang from your cursor...

Browse the web, while he scuttles across the results. 

Get a friend who comes back to greet you, every time you switch your PC on. 

More features coming soon, stay tuned!

For Windows OS. 

Mac Support coming soon...

How do I get rid of the hats?

when i uninstalled he is still on m screen does that mean i didnt delete the right file

You can uninstall him by going opening 'Control Panel' on your computer and clicking 'Uninstall a program'. Then restart your device. Hope this helps!

Virus SAFETY FILE can be trojan



May I please ask what has caused you concern that my app may be a virus? If there's an antivirus program on your computer that's picked up the bearded dragon as a false-positive, please let me know and I'll contact the company to get things straight. 

It's not a virus, and it does hurt to have these accusations being made. 

Kind regards, 



how can i resize him i don,t know how to and i would like some help

Hi Mikey,

Unfortunately there is no current way to resize him, my apologies!

I'll take your feedback into account for the next time I release a new version. 




aww, cute! i especcialy like when he follows your mouse but it would be great if you could code it maybe a little more so he could do other stuff (like his hat falls off when he climbs up and then he goes to get it)

also he was following my mouse almost half the time i wrote this comment

I'm so glad you like him! He is pretty cute. 😉 I'm not actively working on this project at the moment,  but I'll definetly add your ideas to an ever growing list of suggestions,  and I'll contact you if I release an update with your idea.  Hope you continue to enjoy him!


its not working uninstalld :\

I'm sorry to hear this marshall.itch. Would you mind sending an email with a brief description of the problem you experienced to jonathan@thejonathanv.com so future users don't encounter the same issue?

are you using microsoft edge? if so, use google because its works with that.

and if you still have the problem, you may need to free up some storage space(try emptying the recycle bin

help how do i remove the lizard? i don't want him anymor

Have you tried pressing the 'tilde' key on your laptop? (It looks like this: ~  don't hold down shift)


or you could just do ctrl+alt+del and then task manager and clcik the lizard task and click end task

That works too!😄

my window's said this: Microsoft defending SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized application from starting. Running this application can put your computer at risk.

Hi iguanaa, thanks for reaching out about your concern! Unfortunately Windows 10 warns users before installing the Bearded Dragon in the manner you have described, because of the small number of people in the world that use the program. It is safe to install the program, and when SmartScreen shows this alert, you can dismiss it by pressing 'More info' and then 'run anyway'. Hope this helps, please get in touch again if you're still stuck. 

Regards, Jono.
