Nairobi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nairobi
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Savannah Monitor Lizard
Home: New York, USA
   Nairobi is six months old and is roughly ten inches long from head to tail. He lives with me in New York. Nairobi is special to me because he shows character which I didn't think lizards had. At times, he will be a bit moody but he is usually tame and handled easily. When his belly is being rubbed, he will close his eyes as if he's enjoying a massage. This is Nairobi in his water bowl. He likes to cool off and take a swim after basking on the driftwood in his tank. His diet consists mostly of crickets but I do feed him some pinkie mice as a treat sometimes. If I can't get to the pet store, he'll eat some of my mother's London Broil which he loves.
