Monty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Monty
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Savannah Monitor Lizard
Home: Southern USA
   This is Monty the Savannah Monitor shooting his tongue out in search of food. Monty has been a part of my family since 1999 and is now 3 feet long. He is house-trained, will not use his cage or the carpet for the bathroom. I put him outside and no matter where in the yard I put him he finds his way home after he goes to the bathroom. He navigates the big back yard, comes in the pool screen door, comes to the glass sliding door and scratches on it till someone opens it and lets him in. We love to put him outside at parties so everyone can see him do this. They can't believe he is just like a dog (maybe smarter than some). When I pick him up and make kissing sounds, he makes the same sounds back at me using his ear holes. He is amazing.
