Zeus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zeus
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: Phoenix, Arizona, USA
   His name Zeus He is five to six years old (I rescued him and do not know exact age). He is a green iguana. I think he is special just cause I love him, he is almost four feet long from head to toe, though you can not see his tail in this photo!

    Zeus is special because he is alive. I rescued him from a brutal environment. He does not really play any games, except when he looks in the mirror he believes there is another iguana and so he tries to play and when his reflection does not play back he gets mad. Zeus is well behaved he is potty trained. He has a tranquarium but has free run of the house, he stays in the kitchen area. The only thing Zeus does that is bad is he tries to eat dog food and even though it is tasty he can not digest it. Zeus is scarier to more people than my dogs, he is pretty mellow but still intimidates some people with his prehistoric look and his big tail.
