is very special because he loves to play with er ... I mean
destroy ... Lego cities that my brother and I create. He also has a fond
liking of green blankets (I think he thinks they are leaves and tries to
eat them.) We also have a goldfish in a tank next to George's home and
when it swims close George likes to try to catch it with his tongue.
My George just has to taste everything and this why I think my George is
George is independent and doesn't like any other animal to be near him.
I guess he is jealous. He will whip his tail at other animals if they
get close or try to eat them. When we dump crickets into his home, his
eyes light up and he hops up and down on his legs and starts the chase!
George is very good at hanging onto clothing and he will stay put on my
little brother's shirt while he walks around. George is my first lizard
and I've had him for over seven years. We got him from a friend that
couldn't take care of him anymore. I thought his "whiskers" were really
cool and I like how they change color depending on his mood.
When we let George out to explore, he likes to hide so we have to keep
an eye on him. One time when we weren't watching closely, he slipped away
and we didn't find him for two days. I watch him closer now when he is
George's favorite food is crickets, but he also loves super worms and
kale and strawberries. Every time my friends come over, they want to
hold him and he is very good at sitting still for everyone. I've had
him longer than any other pet and he is very easy and fun to take care of.
