||Six months old|

is a cheerful, curious reptile that loves to watch the world go by.
Archie is special to me because he is my first reptile. I am used to mammals
and birds like dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens. He is a lovely little
thing and he enjoys to be handled, there had been times he climbed onto my
shoulder and watched out of the window. He tells me when he is hungry by
scratching on the window or sitting beside his food bowl and he also hints
that he is bored of the same things, example: If I give him nothing but
crickets and mealworms he would stop eating them but when I buy a tub of
locust and put one in his vivarium he would run up to it and guzzle the poor
thing. He loves his salad (Mostly Kale) and locusts.
He is very friendly and loves the camera; when he sees the thing, he starts
to pose. Archie loves everyone, he will happily sit in your palm and admire
the view, of course he is a little bit grumpy when he is shedding but when he
finish shedding he is back to his loveable, smart self. I love his colour
scheme, his orange head is very striking and the patterns on his back are so
sweet. I brought him not so long ago but I seem so attached to him already
probably due to his lovable personality.
It was rather hard to look after him at first, as you had to give him live
food and make sure he got enough vitamins but after a while it became as easy
as giving hay to guinea pigs. I love Archie!
