Osiris, the Pet of the Day
Name: Osiris
Age: Four year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: Boylston, Massachusetts, USA
   Hello humans. I am Osiris the Iguana and I rule a small web and database design shop, Lizard Database & Web, Inc. My daily responsibilities include making sure the humans get all their work done (or it's 30 lashes with my tail), acting as spokesperson for my company, and performing other complicated duties. You must understand that this business of mine is a front for a much larger operation - reptilian world domination. So if you'll excuse me, I have to put the finishing touches on my new plasmo-destruct-o raygun. If you want to know more about me, the human that feeds me will say a little more...

    Osiris is a four year old female green iguana. She's approximately four feet long, nose to tail, and weighs about nine pounds. We didn't know that she was a she when we bought her, so we tossed a coin and decided on a male name. By the time we realized that Osiris was female, it was too late to change it. When my husband and I decided to start our own business a couple of years ago, she helped us pick a name and immediately became the mascot. Since then, she has built up a bit of a following amongst our customers and business partners.

    When Osiris isn't busy running the company or trying to take over the world, she enjoys basking under her sun lamp (or outside in the sun during the summer), chasing our two cats around the house, and eating hand prepared chef salads. Her cage is in our home office so she can keep up on our comings and goings. Unfortunately, she has almost completely outgrown her current cage, so this summer we'll be building her a new, much larger enclosure which will have a water fountain for playing and bathing and lots of driftwood for climbing. If you'd like to see more about Osiris, visit our company's webpages.
