My daughter found a man who loves lizards as much as she does. Going to a lizard show with them is fun. I have to talk both of them out of leaving with every adorable lizard they find. It doesn’t matter if the lizard is a bearded dragon, a gecko, a chameleon, or whatever other types of lizard you can find there. They want them all.

This year for Father’s Day, my daughter is looking for the perfect lizard themed gift for her “Father of Lizards.” Here are a five we thought were pretty cool and good for your “Father of Lizards.”

This t-shirt was the winner hands down for a fun Father’s Day gift and if you have a father that raises bearded dragons, this is the perfect shirt for them. While these lizards aren’t exactly tiny dinosaurs, bearded dragons do share a common ancestor with their larger lizard cousins. Bearded dragons might be a bit spiky compared to other lizards, but they are very lovable. This is a great Father’s Day gift for the “Father of Lizards” in your life.
