  6. Doug is very cool. Do you always have to wear gloves to handle him? (Sorry to be so ignorant, I don't know much about lizards. My friend had an iguana but we never used gloves.)

    1. It's easier to wear gloves since his nails curl under and tend to get stuck in my skin or clothing. His toes are so long and fragile that we worry about them getting hurt if he gets stuck and twists. He needs a nail trim right now, we need to find a new herpetologist.

    2. Ah - so it's more about protecting him than protecting you. That makes sense. Thanks for the education. :)

    1. Doug is a Solomon Island Skink, also known as a monkey tailed skink. He can hang by his tail like a monkey!
