Cold-blooded, cold-hearted. It’s a common misconception that lizards are cold, distant creatures who would rather stay in their nests and hide from the world than have anything to do with us. While it’s safe to say that they aren’t as sentimental or affectionate as dogs and cats, some types of lizards are social butterflies and can get quite attached to their human keepers. It takes patience, but it works.

And despite what some may say, like that they’re weird or ugly, they’re incredibly fascinating reptiles. I can’t be the only one who was obsessed with them at a young age! They’re basically tiny dinosaurs, so the perfect combination of cute and badass, if I do say so myself.

Add that they show a range of interesting behaviors, and pet lizards can easily become a photographer’s favorite subject. So here we are, changing all the preconceived notions about them with this collection of cute lizards! From big-eyed geckos to armadillo lizards that might remind you of baby dragons, these cuties are sure to make you a lizard lover!

They have naps together, spy on the neighbors through the window together, and just generally hang out together every chance they get.

Presenting Teacup Noodle

Presenting Teacup Noodle

Smaug was bought from a pet store (yes I know it’s bad to support them, but at the time I didn’t know it) where she was kept in a 10 gal with another aggressive leopard gecko, in the back room. Her living conditions were not too good (not proper hearing, cohabbing, crickets literally everywhere biting them) and I believe it to be a deformity caused by an untreated case of mouth rot she got at the store. It was a stressful environment and she was kept on dirty urate stained reptile carpet, so I believe she got mouth rot there. It wasn’t treated but by the time I bought her, it was healed on its own, but it did leave a bit of a ripple in her mouth. She’s still my beautiful spaghetti and it doesn’t cause her any trouble.

You gave her a loving home. It doesn't matter where you got her, it sounds like she was a rescue spaghetti, so thank you.

If you're wondering they have numbers so the breeder can keep track of which is which.

This makes me want baby horned lizards. I may have to look into getting a little toy one to live on a potplant. I'm sure the real ones need more care and attention than I'm up for.

I bought a cute crescent hat. Small leopard-sized hat. Isn't it too cute!! ️Except for Shii-kun, he gave me a hat! The light blue hat with a ribbon on it. I received it as a celebration of Suzuna's discharge and recovery! Thank you Mon-chan mom.
