This is a photo of my granddaughter’s lizzard. We cut the nose off so you are seeing the side view with the eye and the ear. I had never seen one up close myself, so I thought it looked so odd, at first. I was also surprised at how beautiful the colors were because I have always been terrified of them. Actually anything in the snake or lizzard family terrified me. I have now touched this guy, on the back, He is about 8-10 inches long. I am not quite sure how long he will grow to be but I doubt I will ever get the nerve to hold him. Actually, he just likes to lay on your shoulder and cuddle. My granddaughter walks around with him laying on her which really looks natural for her. Natural for me is my 2 cats.
