Hi Carol. Iggy's quite a boy. I often leave him inside the house and he can roam freely. He begs food like a dog when it is lunch or dinner time. The difference is if he's able to go on top of the table, he won't touch your food if it's on your plate. He waits.Originally Posted by skimonkey
When driving, he loves to stay on your cars dashboard and behaves well as if he knew what accident can happen if he make bad moves. When he was younger, he loves to hang on the steering wheel. Now, that he's almost 2 meters in length and how many pounds in weight, definitely impossible. It's either the dashboard or the driver's headrest for him.
What I like the most is when he chooses the headrest, he scratches gently the bottom part back of my head. I don't know how but the feeling is like there's a gentle pushing of a thumb and a soothing scratching of the scalp. Imagine that on a heavy traffic and having a scalp massage from a therapist. Only thing is it's Iggy doing that. Good thing I don't fall asleep.
He scares strangers like dogs inside the house. He bobs his head when he doesn't like the person. That's a cue to stay away from him unless you want a lash from his scaly tail that can really make the skin bleed.
I'll post more for you to see.
I bet no one ever thinks of breaking into your house...lol

Not only do you have a dog/lizard--you also have a personal Massage therapist on board! I can only imagine what people think when driving on the road in all that traffic in the Pinas--and they turn to see a large lizard hanging out on the dash!
He sounds like a very unique pet to have. Hopefully he hasn't lashed out his tail at anyone-that wouldn't be good!
Does he like certain Filipino foods? Pancit, maybe?
Imagine this, passengers inside cars or buses holding their cellphone cams and taking pictures while on traffic. Somehow I really feel good doing this. The Iggy paparazzis.Originally Posted by skimonkey
Others bring their dogs. I just do with my Iggy.
He loves bread, kangkong, kamote tops, and his favorite is malunggay leaves. Once in a while, fruit cocktail. He can swallow half of a big banana only that it takes him a while.
Iggy doesn't like my twin 15 year old nephews. He still remembers these two boys pulling his tail when he was about a foot long then. The two kids were like 5years old that time. He broke and almost lost an inch of his tail end when he tried to whip them. I had to put iodine solution and bandage on the tail end just to keep it from breaking apart as it was already hanging loose. Up to now, he bobs his head whenever he sees them and curls his tail to one side ready for a lash. That's why I can say Iggy's got a good memory.
***The two boys weren't harmed. Iggy hit the radio instead. It was Iggy who got hurt.
My daughter wants one badly. Do they really use a kitty litter?

I'm not sure if everyone does but we have lately since he didn't seem to like the bedding we bought for him. The litter seems to be working good.Originally Posted by leelai
