Camera Critters - Lazy Lounge Lizard

Here are a couple of pics of Bobber, the big boy lizard (green iguana), who was adopted.


Being a lounge lizard - looks like he's elbowed up to the bar doesn't it?

And just to show you the difference, this is Zimmie.  My youngest step daughter and I bought her for Dad at a pet shop when she was just a few inches long - you've seen them.  That same day we adopted a guinea pig named Harry.  He didn't last as long as Zimmie.  See the difference in color?  that's because Zimmie has been fed right all these years, and Bobber wasn't.  The little white patch on her is a scar from an injury.  Oh BTW, Zimmie is a bastardization of Bob Dylan's real name : )


Have a happy day and be kind to all critters, no matter how many legs they have.  Peace.  B : )

Zimmie is gorgeous. Hopefully Bobber will get better with time and good care. Iguana's are gorgeous lizards.

What a huge difference proper diet makes - maybe we people should take a clue from that too! My colors aren't looking so good these days either, LOL!

So Bobber's color won't ever come back? That's sad! Interesting to see the differences though; I don't know anything about lizards.
