Peter The Plated Lizard

I’m an African lizard.

I make a great pet as I’m very laid back and mainly active during the day. In the wild I really enjoy the heat so I like to bask in the hot sun. My armour is quite thick for protection and can use my tail to hit any predators. When scared I can quickly hide in the smallest gaps between rocks where it’s safe.
