(I have a tegu out for a natural encounter type presentation for guests, and it’s on the floor totally uncovered, laying on a towel. For those of you unfamiliar with a tegu, it’s a distant cousin of a monitor lizard. Keep in mind that no part of this animal is hidden, and you can see its legs, head, tail, everything.)

Me: Good afternoon ma’am, would you like to pet a creature?

(The lady looked quite interested, and approaches me with her kids.)

Guest: What type of fish is this?

Me: It’s a lizard, ma’am……

Guest: Are you sure?

Me: Yes ma’am, I’m sure.

Guest: Oh, never mind then.

(She wanders off to the next exhibit with her kids, leaving me greatly confused.)
