Alfie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Alfie
Age: Four months old
Gender: Unknown
Kind: Mali Uromastyx
Home: Naples, Florida, USA
   Hi, my name is Alfie and I'm a Mali Uromastyx. I'm a very playful lizard, when I want to come out I go over to the glass, stand on my hind legs and beg. Originally, my mom went into the pet store to look at Leopard Geckos, but she ended up falling head over heels for me. That's why I'm called Alfie. I also love to give lizard kisses. We can't tell my gender yet, since I'm so young, but everyone assumes that I'm a boy.

    I eat the occasional cricket for now, while I'm growing, but I love my mustard greens and bird seed. (The bird seed helps my digestion!) I'm very calm and I love to sit on my mom's shoulder while she is on the computer and walk on the keys. In a few months, though, I might not be able to sit on her shoulder because I'll be 16 inches long and fat. But now, while I'm only 5 inches long, I'll sit in anyone's hand!
