Twitter user @xxxmenstruacion from Puerto Rico recently shared two images of a man with his pet lizard clicked at a shop. The golden lizard, most likely a bearded dragon, was seen resting its head and front legs on the man’s shoulder and a tiny mask with two strings tied around its neck.
The Twitter user, who was standing next in line in the shop, was amazed by unusual sight and shared the images with her followers. Soon the tweet went viral, getting over 4.26 lakh likes and 61,000 retweets.
