Happy World Lizard Day!

A very happy World Lizard Day to all of you from all of us here at RARN!

Please remember to hug your lizard today. (If they are the kind that actually likes hugs. Otherwise try chucking them under the chin or a friendly tongue lick!) And give them an extra one from us.

Iguana Smiling

Hi, I’m Godzuki, a common green iguana (Iguana iguana) from Central America.

Know why I’m smiling?

Because I made it! When I was about three months old, I was picked up off the streets of West Hollywood by two kind gentlemen. They kept me warm and safe until they could leave me with RARN. Boy, was I sick! A lady treated me in her home for malnutrition, severe dehydration, and a bad case of intestinal parasites.

For the past 21 years I’ve had fresh fruits and vegetables to eat, some direct sunlight, a daily warm shower or two, and plenty of high places to climb to, which I love. But the missing spines on my back show I didn’t get the kind of care and food I needed when I was very young.

I would never have survived those mean streets of Hollywood without RARN. Literally.

See why I can’t stop smiling?

Another Leopard Gecko

This leopard gecko was placed in a good home.

She was originally found in a manger surrounded by frankincense and myrrh.
