Freckles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Freckles
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Savannah Monitor Lizard
Home: Denver, Colorado, USA
   We live in Denver, where in the summertime I take Freckles for walks at the lake by my house. He has a harness he wears for walks. Freckles enjoys laying in the sun and eating scrambled eggs. Freckles is surprisingly very affectionate, he likes having his head rubbed. Freckles' most favorite thing in the world is to smell the garbage can at the park. He gets free range around the house when we are home and he lives in a 9'x4'x4' habitat when we are not.

    Freckles likes to eat scrambled eggs and turkey. He is really easy to take care of, but he needs a lot of love. He will get to be around five feet in length. I would recommend a Savannah Monitor to anyone, but they can be aggressive if not held regularly from a very young age. We have had Freckles since he was four inches long. We get him out for at least two hours every day. They are not to be just a cool thing to impress your friends they are a pet like any other and they need love. We love Freckles.
