Kirin, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kirin
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Giant Green Iguana
Home: Malvern, Pennsylvania, USA
   This is a photo of my iguana, Kirin - he is now about a year old. In the photo, he was about eight months old. He is a giant green iguana and we live in Malvern, PA. Every night when his lights go off, I take Kirin out of his enclosure to cuddle. He likes to lay down on my chest while I'm laying on the couch and then he snuggles himself into my neck and goes to sleep. Usually, I get a whole bunch of lizard kisses first!

    Kirin is a rescue who came to me after a school teacher gave him up when she found out how big iguanas get. He wasn't fed properly nor did he get the right lighting or temperature conditions, resulting in a crooked jaw. But to me, he's the most beautiful iguana (not to mention the most beautiful pet) in the world -- next to his older brother Frodo, another iguana, of course!
