      Hi Glenn - That is funny that those names are the same or similar. Lizards really are cool critters and I'm always surprised to hear how many people have them. Thanks for stopping by.

      When I was a child I had several chameleons and salamanders. I remember naming two of them Iggy and Puffy. It’s funny that you listed Iggy as an example and Puff Daddy is pretty close to Puffy.

      Besides the well known Geico lizard, I found your list of famous lizards interesting. Fun article to read.
