Yeah, who wouldn’t want a Spider-Man lizard for a pet?

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that pet-lovers in Britain has a new favorite, and it’s this Spider-Man look-alike:


That’s the Mwanza Flat-headed Rock Agama which can be found all-over the Sub-Saharan Africa. The Daily Telegraph writes:

Agamas like the Spider-Lizard, as it has become known make good pets, as they become tame and docile if handled regularly. However, they require specialist equipment in the UK to maintain their temperature.

It can grow up to a foot long, and the squeamish may find it a problem to feed – a balanced diet for an agama includes locusts, crickets, mealworms and waxworms.

If only it could shoot webs! (It can scale vertical walls, though.)
