Thor, the Pet of the Day
Name: Thor
Age: Five months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: Brandon, Manitoba, Canada
   This is our boy Thor. You can see why his species is called the Green Iguana, although when he is older he won't be quite as vivid a green. He is a friendly little iguana. He loves climbing on the screen windows and on top of his parents heads, too. We did a lot of research before we got him, and are very careful that he gets the food he needs to grow healthy and strong. We hope that before he reaches his full size, though, he will learn to settle for a shoulder instead of our heads, as a full grown adult Green Iguana can weigh over four pounds, and can be 4 feet long! But right now he's really still a little hatchling, so he fits on heads just fine. Thor is also highly curious and wants to investigate anything new in his environment - perhaps that's why he like our heads to perch on - for the view! Thor is an only pet and we look forward to many years of fun with him.
