Eastern bearded dragon or bearded lizard, Petey has become a social media sensation after her owner Izzy from the US posted pictures of their girl’s party with cookie dough and eclairs on Twitter.

However, this dark side of the lizard didn’t scare users away, with the initial message soon going viral with nearly 27,000 re-tweets and more than 100,000 likes, and eventually inspired other users to share precious moments with their scaly friends. As it turns out, the reptiles are up to lots of fun and are no strangers to their humans’ favorite ways to relax and spend free time.
Among others, there are movie streaming services…
…hanging out with other species…

And of course, a bath as a perfect ending for a busy day.

Others didn’t appreciate the buzz around lizards, including Petey and her owner in particular, as later the girl complained about death threats
listen y’all can send me death threats all you want I already wanna die but can you maybe stop telling me you wish petey would die she’s currently getting sick and that’s kinda fucked up lmao I shouldn’t have to ask this— izzy (@danisnobunk) 19 мая 2018 г.
