Gene Simmons is the CityStream Pet of the Week at the Seattle Animal Shelter this week! Can you believe it?!? Of course, Gene is a green iguana (I like to think of them as Tiny Dragons), thus named because of a VERY long and impressive tongue. So far, the shelter isn't 100% sure if Gene is male or female - I guess it's hard to tell just by looking. They're guessing female because of her diminutive size and have her listed as such on Petfinder. Regardless of gender, Gene is a fabulous and fun iguana. Active and curious, she's known to be a jumper and a climber. She's reputed to LOVE riding around on her people-friends shoulders. Iguanas have very specific housing, temperature and feeding requirements, and if these are met, they make excellent and charismatic companions. Are you looking for a green reptilian friend to give a good home to?
