A clumsy bearded dragon tried and failed to climb up a shower curtain.

Ben Saxe watched on as his pet lizard Spike joined him in his bathroom at home in New York.

The curious bearded dragon spotted a shower curtain and decided to he would scale it, but just centimetres off the ground, the 8-year-old tumbled on to his back.

Ben said: “This was the first, and only time, Spike has tried to climb the shower curtain.

“Spike is very active for his age.

“Most bearded dragons mellow with age, but he is always looking for mischief.”
