Eduardo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Eduardo
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: Dalton, Georgia, USA
   This Is Eduardo, my Green Iguana. This picture is when he was with his friend Buddy, who is a Chinese Water Dragon. Eduardo is three years old and is male. Buddy won't get any bigger, so as Eduardo grows and grows - iguanas can grow to be five to six feet long, the size difference between them will be much greater! I got him from a pet store where he was in a tiny cage with two other iguanas and one piece of lettuce. I knew right then he had to come with me!

    You could say Eduardo is well-trained because I leave his cage open and he goes out wandering and he always finds his way back in. I don't ever have to go looking for him, he always returns. I guess he must like his cage. Eduardo is pretty smart, too - some people don't realize lizards think. But when Eduardo is hungry, he gets out of his cage, finds me, and climbs my leg. It works every time!
