    He's just beautiful, Deej! Do you handle him often? I love his little feet.

    I wonder if they retain their color after they are cooked?

    I think they just blacken up. Probably taste like chicken.

    You're probably right. Wonder if they could be brightened up, after being cooked, with some food coloring. That would be quite festive!

    We could probably color them up with some food grade paint. Or we could even gild them in some edible 24K gold paint. (That might be a little gaudy.)

    He is a beauty. Still doesn't look real to me, though.

    What does yellow mean to your leezard? Don't the different colors mean things?
    What color is angry, territory defense?
    Cool leezard, DJ!

    Does he have a strong grip? I mean, does it hurt when he climbs an arm or anything?

    Karen, he turns yellow and red when he is really excited...usually when I am feeding him. Relaxed he is green/blue. If he is angry he will puff up get and get black striping. He is very hard to piss off, though...I try sometimes so I can see his other patterns but he is VERY docile!
    Jon, they have a wicked grip. When he is on the same spot for too long he leaves little nail indentations in me. He has never broken any skin though LOL
