New Pet!!!  

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Tonight, I am getting a Savannah Monitor.
For those who are lost...
a Savannah Monitor is a Lizard, native to Africa... He will grow up to 4 feet long!!!!

He is only a baby right now, 6 inches long...so by the time he is big enough to come out and hang out with us, the kits will be big and able to move away.

I have been planning on getting this guy for ages, and the other half was just plain against it. He came home with the tank and supplies last night, as a surprise for me!

Sure beats flowers.

In his words, ' Nothing says love like a big, dirty lizard!'

I guess this is his way of making up for being a jerk lately?

*Jess*

PS... I will post pics later!

Oh, the kitties will be appropriately distanced. Right now, they are more a threat to him!

Loki will be home in about 20 minutes! Tank is all prepped!!!! Pics soon!

Okay, Loki is home!
And I am enamoured.
Luckily, the cats aren't even paying attention to him.
I have some photos of the little guy, who is just a hatchling, very small!

I will post them soon!

Sadly, Loki passed away sometime last night/this morning.

Something may have been wrong with his digestive system.

I am fairly upset, so forgive me for the bluntness.


I have posted in Crossing the Bridge, for those of you who were interested, and waited for Loki's photos.

Out of respect for Loki, I am now closing this thread.

RIP Loki
