This is MacGyver. He's a three-year-old Argentine red tegu. His parents, who requested to be referred by just their first names, Scott and Ice, live in San Diego. Scott is a 34-year-old software developer, and Ice is a 38-year-old student.

They started documenting his growth online as a way to connect with other tegu owners. After a posting a video compilation to YouTube, the pair discovered significant interest in MacGyver.

The couple try to document the everyday life of a giant lizard — eating, going for walks or trips out, as well as cuddles.
