Dinner with Doug


Doug with his favorite meal of green beans, mmm hmm
 Doug is a vegetarian lizard, he loves salads, fruits and especially green beans. He's a Solomon Island Skink, also known as a monkey tailed or prehensile tailed skink, since he can hang from his tail like a monkey. We've had him for about 13 years, skinks can live to be in their 30's!

Y'all wouldn't be lookin' ta take my green beans, would ya?

Sarge's blog is having an Amazing Exotics event hosted by Shelldon & Beachnut, so go over to their blog and enter or just check out who else has entered! Dachshund Nola had a link on her blog, she has a bunch of cool goats in her family! Wonder if there will be any other lizards there?

  4. Oh Doug, you cutie! You might be from the Solomon Islands but I think you've picked up a Texan drawl LOL. Thank goodness those are green beans. When I first looked at the picture, my hair stood on end. I thought they were green caterpillars.

  8. Hello Doug nice to meet you. Lucky you, that you can hang from your tail. That would be epic if I could do that when I was squirrel hunting. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly
