He's doing his very best.

8. And depending on the species, they can live up to 20 years.

Which is a blessing each and every day.

9. Blue tongue skinks are great pets and actual beauties.

10. But aside from their tongue, they're actually pretty defenceless.

So like, actual angels.

17. They look broody and macho in a bad boy kinda way.

Naturally making all the other lizards swoon.

18. Bearded dragons are the perfect companion if you like things that are good.

Get your lizard a blog like this one.

19. And they can be beautifully glamorous when they want to be.

But they're actually very low-key creatures.


20. You can find a friendly sidekick in a curly-tailed skink.

He's never done anything wrong in his life.

21. Savannah monitors are one of the larger pet lizards, perhaps making them even better friends.

22. And if you're a hardcore lizard lover, an intelligent pet tegu might be perfect for you.

23. Lizards require a lot of care and looking after, but ultimately it's worth it.
