  2. That’s one very handsome lizard 🙂 and a great poem!

    • Thank you. She is a great specimen of an iguana I am told. Mardoch belongs to my son-in-law, and I am sometimes called upon to lizard-sit. As long as I don’t have to handle Mardoch, I am okay with it. Enjoy the day. 🙂

    • No, it belongs to my son-in-law. I have lizard-sat for Mardoch while he was away. This means that I have to feed the iguana. I have never actually been around when my son-in law lets it out of its cage. I don’t really think I want to be. Iguana’s can be quite territorial. I am a dog person, myself, and I don’t really see the purpose of having an iguana. However, my son-in-law loves Mardoch and has had her for eight years. To each their own, I believe. Enjoy the day! 🙂

      • My daughter just got a ‘small’ gecko for one of her sons as he has allergies and this is a pet he has for his’s small though only grows to 10 in front to back including tail…like you say to each their own I prefer cats (and dogs) Diane

      • I am sure your grandsons appreciate their new gecko pet. It is hard when allergies are involved. Enjoy the day.
