Tut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tut
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: Austin, Texas, USA
   Tut is my Green Iguana. He lives in Austin Texas and he is about one year old. I became acquainted with Iguanas while I was visiting Ecuador on my journey to see South America. One came up to me in the park of a coastal village while I was having a bit of lunch. At first I was afraid but when I looked closer at him I saw this mellow face with a smile on it. Since then, the gentle giant green lizards have had a special place in my heart. Tut loves to hang out in the back yard and soak up the sun in his big pen I built for him. After munching on greens and papayas in the afternoon he likes to go for a swim in his swimming pool. Then it's back to sun tanning. Owning pets is good for the soul.
