That's what I thought too (sometimes also "teju"). In the last 15 years or so so they have become popular as pets because they are not very demanding or particular nor do they need too much heat/sun (some subspecies can even hibernate in European climate). The species itself was only discovered relatively late but became popular quickly because - similar to iguanas (but it is closer related to skink lizards) - it breeds well on farms (for its leather and its meat). They are also rather peaceful, so this one must have been provoked or goaded with food.

The issue people get with them is that - similar to monitors - they grow and grow and grow, becoming ultimately too large for people that don't have the space. 5 feet head to tailend is not unheard of.

They are from South America, but if one escaped in the warmer parts of the States or Europe, it would have a good chance of survival. And of course, undeterred by recent Supreme Court rulings and US Immigration Laws, they are already here ...

Anything will breed and live happily ever after in Florida, polar bears maybe excepted.

Guys, there is no such thing as a "good" wig. Especially on celebrities. The ones they wear on screen are usually very convincing, but that's because there is somebody fussing with them all the time. The "daily driver" always looks exactly like what it is.
I say, "Let it shine". You ain't foolin' nobody.

He's got a good Ozzy voice; a bit girthier, which is not bad at all.  Those are the driest drums I have ever heard though; get some reverb to relieve that drymouth.

Can't hear the bass at all on this comp (that's a mudbucker for ya).
