Acquired: Pet store
Posted Nov 27, 2014
When I was a child my family owned Collared lizards. While we originally got them for my brother, who was interested in any sort of reptile or bug, they actually became some of our favorite family pets. They were cuddly, adaptable, and fairly easy to care for. Cheeky, our male lizard, used to love to sit on my mothers shoulder calmly for about an hour at a time. He was very fond of being petted. They mostly ate crickets, which were cheap and easy to feed them. We have not since owned lizards, but I would be very willing to get one again! Such lovely and unexpectedly affectionate animals.
