    I've had several different types of lizards (geckos, bearded dragons, chameleons) but the reason I love my tegu is that they are so sweet natured. They love to cuddle! If I scratch the top of my guy's head while holding him like a baby, he thinks he's a dog and pants, raises his body up and wiggles his forepaws :) Adorable pets, and I take him to reptile-related events and schools so I can get folks to not be scared of a large lizard. People remember him, and are always happy to come pet him. He doesn't mind the attention and is always good with kids and adults (doesn't mind getting petted/held by strangers). I've had him since he was a baby and gave him lots of attention and handling, which is why he's friendly.
