Those the the tympanic membrane, also known as his ears.. that clear looking thing below the "brain bumps" and above the big circle thing (jowel). that same fimly thing they have for ears is the same thing we have in our ears!

You can kind of see her "third eye" on top between her brain bumps. its basically for her survival instict type thing. it only sees heat.. since bird prey on them i guess in the wild they use that its like a heat sensor in a sense i guess lol.. its not like she goes OMG WTF I SEE YOU UP DER WTF YOU DOING.. hahahaha i love mah gila !! ALso i have a picture of her outside from a few years ago. she opens her mouth when she is outside if she is really hot. when she does that i know she will either get down from her chair and sit in the shade or i will poor water on her.

well his leash the pink one is to small now... he has a blue vest now. generally he doesnt wear one at all because he is so tame he doesnt go anywhere... but once he jumped off our deck and ran off into the grass eating weeds n stuff so i kinda put one on him now ! lol yea he does go for walks he just likes to eat the leafs and he doesnt like RUN like a dog would he just walks around and then licks stuff and then moves along not to fast. unless scared then he will run quick.

Those are his "jowels" if you touch them like the big circle thing is just their "signature" kinda thing like some animals have stripes to show its a "tiger" you know? the puffy thing is his jowels though and its like a fatty deposit. they feel like they are full of air but i dont think they are haha.. He eats fruits and veggies. Herbavoire. No meat or anything. sometimes i give him salmon treats or tuna treats but other then that nothing. Some people feed them rats but that isnt healthy for them as they are obviously herbavoires and it also makes them aggressive.

yes he does roam through the house. He has a cage i can post a picture too ill find it here.. that has a heat lamp that keeps him warm as he is obviously cold blooded lol.. needs sunlight to get vitamins n such so he does bask outside in the summer.

GOSH, YO - HE HAS A VERITABLE LITTLE HOUSE!

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF HIS JOWLS, YO? LIKE THERE MUST BE A PURPOSE TO THEM AND WHY THEY HAVE CONTINUED THROUGH NATURAL SELECTION - LIKE TIGERS' STRIPES ARE FOR CAMOUFLAGE.

No he goes to the bathroom in that brown litter you see him chillin on on that picture. He is potty trained so he goes to his house to potty then comes back out. i just leave the bottom and top door open. He also goes back into there on his own when he is cold. warms up and comes back out. He doesn't sleep in his house at night as he is so docile that he sleeps on a body pillow and covered up in a blanket. i get him really warm and then wrap him in a blanket and he sleeps on the side of the bed with me and my boyfriend like a dog hahaha...

During the day when we are not home he is caged. As i dont want him to get into an area he shouldnt be in or crawl into a space he cant get back out of haha.. But he will let himself get extremely cold before going back to his house which i dont like.. and they do "talk" they bob their heads up and down and that floppy looking "beard" you see is their "dewlap" wich will just puff out and they will bob their heads up and down or vibrate them side to side to "talk". He does that every morning to me to say "hello... feed me?". He takes baths at least 4 times a week to soak to keep him skin all nice. he can swim in deep waters, go under water and hold his breath up to 30 minutes. They are pretty neat i love him so much ! lol
