Blue Belly Lizard

Here we have Jackson with a blue-belly lizard perched atop his head. It's a better picture of Jackson than of the lizard, plainly. This is just to show you that Jackson has a lizard, and then when it isn't hypnotized and laying belly-up in his hand, it's scrambling around on his head, or waiting for someone to dump a dozen medium-sized crickets ($1.09 at The Ark pet shop) into its tank. Its name is Scale. Its name was Bastard, but Jack made Jackson change it. Scale came from the job site where it was minding its own blue belly business when a couple of guys on break chased it down and gave it to Jackson. And that's the story of today's photo.
