For those of you that think my frog is an odd or exotic pet, check out the cute fuzzy pet below. After we took Xander out of his cage, we walked around the pet store a bit as the owners were busy with other customers. A door that is normally closed was opened and Pam saw LARGE reptiles. We first looked at an 8 foot boa that looked quite hungry. By that time the owner was back and told us to turn around and check out the guy behind us. Well, that was it for Pam. She oohed, aahed and fanned herself as the owner took the lizard out of it's cage.
This is an Argentine black and white Tegu. It looks ferocious but is actually a very nice pet. This is a male and about five years old, with some more growing to do. Pam and I looked them up online when we got home and discovered they are quite easy to raise (for a lizard) and very tameable. He was friendly and allowed Pam to pick him up with no qualms.
So I get to be a lizard aunt sometime in the near future. Can't bring Pam anywhere!
What would you do if you saw your neighbor taking this for a walk?
