All pets must be leashed in the park...

...including this baby monitor lizard, who didn't seem to enjoy it much...



Today was such a warm, sunny day that one member of the local parrot squadron (not subject to leash laws) decided to sun himself a bit on the wires, which is unusual behavior for these noisy avians...

I wonder, what do monitor lizards monitor, exactly? Can you jack their tails into your VGA output, and project onto a wall through their eyes?

That'd be really cool.

judging from the eye locations, the resulting image might be viewable only by other monitor lizards....

Oh Scribbs, I love your pics! I have never seen one of those lizard leashes in action. My son has wanted to get one on a couple of occasions when we were in Petsmart, but I wouldn't let him. I can't believe people take their lizards out for walks??? I thought that was a dog thing, lol! (((hugs)))

I remember when I was a kid I bought a littlea tiny chameleon (sp?) at the state fair. It had a short string for a leash and a slip knot around his/her neck. Long story short the critter got out of it's collar and ran loose around the house for 2 weeks before I caught it, scaring the beejeebers out of my mother. I never even thought of a leash on a lizard again until now. Thanks for the memory. :)

sally -- I think your son needs a monitor lizard! Heck, they don't get much more than 4' long according to the owner of this one....

The thing about his lizard is that he will only grow as large as his enviroment lets him, so if we don't get him (or her) a larger tank, it won't grow as big as it could. He's already big enogh as far as I'm concerned.

LOL@Netmale! I thought monitor's were dangerous or something..

(((((hugs)))))
