Eddie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Eddie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Agama
Home: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
   Eddie is special because he is definitely One of a Kind! Agamas are "Old World lizards," - his kind is from Africa originally - some people think he's an iguana, but he's an Agama!

    We got him from a friend who could no longer take care of him. Since we have had him (2 1/2 years) we've upgraded his living style! We got him a bigger home (terrarium) a hammock (where he spends most of his time) a cool big tree where he can sleep inside of it, or just climb it.

    He changes colors - his head turns bright orange, body and (under chin) turns bright blue and his tail and legs can turn aqua green. He is very fast and a great jumper ... he is my baby and I love him and he loves us - we can tell. Many people don't think of lizards having feelings but he definitely does, and he knows his people and is happiest around us. He is fascinating and a really interesting guy.
