Usually when someone in public asks if I want to touch their lizard, I run as fast as I can.

SO IS SHE PUTTING IT IN THE BAG OR DID IT GET OUT?

The lizard is the best looking creature in this picture!
Uh, lady.. I wonder if you’re aware of the fact that that is NOTa butternut squash on your shoulder.. just sayin’.
You know the photo was taken at WalMart, because even the lizard is overweight.
Where ARE these Wal-marts that let stuff like this go on?????
Much more attractive than the Brits “fascinator”!
I’m sticking with the original caption under the pic…LMFAO !!
Lizards are one of the top carriers of salmonella, and she is in the produce dept. Anyone else see a health code violation here?
I think they are triplets, all 3 look alike (lizard included).
That’s one ugly baby, Ma’am. Might’ve been better off not let that one live.
Just how big IS lizard poo…….
Land of the lost walmart?
nasty and I bet she lets that thing crawl over the produce and shit People leave your pets at home !!!!
I’m pretty sure having animals that are NOT service animals inside a place that sells food is NOT allowed…
Reptiles are known carriers of salmonella. This woman has handled the lizard and then the produce. Another reason to scrub your fruits and vegetables.

Iguana … It’s what’s for dinner.
I’ve walked into stores with my iguanas & ferrets on my neck & shoulders. Almost any living creature can be trained to travel with you. This one obviously is. True it’s not the most sanitary place to be standing with a lizard in the fresh produce. But it’s no different than those that walk around with snakes or other tropical animals.
…I WANT ONE!!!…I’M TALKIN’ ABOUT THE IGUANA,FOLKS!…
It’s the “green” way to get rid of head lice. The lizard is fat from eating the lice.
Why would someone bring that to a store?????
I hope that isn’t a candy iguana. It won’t last very long.
So, since when is a baby coon, a lizard and other animals considered guide/ service animal? The doggie a few days back could been accepted as a “MAYBE” service animal, but this???? Next lets bring our pony in because we love it soooooo much and it is sooooo cute I could die. I love animals, but there is a limit.
Finally, a corsage that lasts from homecoming all the way through prom.
MEAT DEPARTMENT – Can I get a price check on lizard?
This is not an Iguana but a Bearded Dragon. It’s a very docile member of the reptile family but even so, this little critter should NOT be a store, especially around produce due to the risk of salmonella (hand sanitizer works wonders). This is an Austrailian animal and is used to warm temperatures and why someone brought him/her out from under the heat light at home is beyond my comprehension. Poor guy/girl is probably frightened (hence the flat look–its a defense mechanism) to death! What some people won’t do to get their picture taken and have a chance to appear on PoWM
@ Mercike…. I read a story the other day about a girl who has a service mini pony becuase she is blind and her religion doesn’t accept dogs or something like that. It’s hard to get surprised these days.
To the person who said – “You know the photo was taken at WalMart, because even the lizard is overweight.” – The lizard is not overweight, that is a normal shape and figure for that type of lizard.
And to everyone else who claimed it was an Iguana… You clearly don’t have a clue when it comes to reptiles because it is NOT an Iguana, it is a Bearded Dragon. Common Iguanas are green not brown. There’s something a little ironic about ignorant people making fun of someone.
Txleaguer is a genius.
That is not an Iguana it’s a bearded dragon
That bearded dragon is cool but does not belong in the store.
You cant get away wit this crap on Long Island. (Pronounced lungeyelan)
Ugh – that creepy thing is around the food! Eww!
Damndest brooch I ever did see!
ya know how they say you start to look like your pet…..
Dont get excited it’s just a couple of lot lizzards
I took this picture! She said it was a “companion animal”. And no, the Walmart employees did nothing about the lizard being there.
I guess when you’re that unattractive carrying around an exotic animal is the only way to get attention. Who cares if you’re spreading germs everywhere.
Does it $pit N’ $h!t when you squeeze it… ?
I was told yesterday that someone brought in a “service snake” to the library. Sorry I’d missed that one.
An ex-boyfriend had a gecko tattooed on his calf. He had quite a bit of body hair, and we used to tease a very uptight co-worker about whether he wanted to pet the bf’s “hairy lizard”. It would just send the co-worker into a tizzy.
You wanna Iguana… poop on your produce?!?!
given a choice,,,,i`d kiss the lizard
Oh for cryin out loud! These people are retarded!
Just what I want, lizard sh*t all over my produce.
The wife of the guy with the coon on his shoulder a few pictures back – it’s a family thing.
Leave it up to the obese white trash that waddles thru walmart to do something totally beyond logic. Well, nobody has probably said more than “move pig” to this person in awhile. She needs a conversation starter.
I totally dig this!
Look a-hole if the rest of us wanted to see great big lizards we would all OWN one. Take him to the park or petsmart, but not where he can spew salmanella on the food I will be buying to feed my kids. I love my big screen TV but you don’t see me bringing it to Walmart!
Can someone give me a big shout of “SALMONELLA”! With them being right at the produce, this has to be some sort of health department violation. This one needs to be reported to Walmart Corp by the photo taker.
There’s a cure for all these animals,lizards,snakes and anything else that is not human getting past the Walmart store greeter. First grab a phone and call the local board of health to report these cases to them. Then if not satisfied call the state board of health and file a report with them. If you stand by taking pictures, all the while complaining, you are not going to get Walmart to stop these damn a**wipes from bringing all kinds of diseases to your dinner table. Also make it known to the store manager that you will keep calling the board of health at the local and state level. Hell tell them you’ll take your business elsewhere due to health risks to you and your family! Idiots and their pets in a store anyway. Leave your pets home dipwads!!
Iguana … the other white trash
If I get the sh*ts after eating this green pepper, I’m suing Wal-mart!
This is animal abuse. If you need attention so bad do something constructive that will earn people’s attention. This is a lazy persons way of being noticed. And people need to speak up when they see animals in stores. Insist that they tell them to keep them outside.
“Today, Walmart announces a partnership with Geico insurance…”
@ Vomit, just wait a few more months and that might show up here. Someone feeling so totally awesome by finally paying off their overpriced big screen TV that they have to show the whole wide world they own one.
Or not be able to get off from FB so bad they have to bring in the laptop so they can announce to everyone they went to the big city and achieved the coolness of cool and made it to Wally World! AND if they are truly stylish they ended up in Sam’s Club AND caught the sample give aways too!!!
Does it look like this dope is eating also?
Maybe it crawled out of the produce and decided it liked her!

How the hell does someone get past the greeter with a reptile hanging on them? The greeter should be fired for letting this pass. I don’t care if the greeter is relying on this job for survival, stop these idiots and make them take their pet home. If the person decides to never shop at Wal-Mart again, we will all be much better off.
That’s what you get when you don’t buy local produce…dang imports!
Reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons where Selma has a lizard called Jubb Jubb….
come to think of it she looks like Selma as well…..

Reptile Lover: “The lizard is not overweight, that is a normal shape and figure for that type of lizard.”
Gotta disagree. Beardies do typically have a more rounded abdomen compared to other lizards, but the one in the pic is pretty extreme. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was egg bound.
Balls to you
first off that dragon is not overweight…i myself own one and it’s the way it’s sitting…sometimes they sit flat out and it makes them look round like that…secondly I don’t understand why everyone says it’s animal abuse to take them out from their light….they are allowed to come out of their cages..especially when it’s nice and sunny out they can take in some of the natural heat and light…they enjoy being out
also it’s very rare for them to poop on you..mine has never done his business on me and i’ve taken him out many times..maybe it wasn’t the smartest idea to touch produce but other than that I see no problems with her carrying it around
Is it Patty, Selma and Jub-Jub??

I really don’t care if it’s a “Breaded Dragon”, “Iguana” , alligator or what . WHAT IS IT DOING IN WALMART AND IN THE FOOD SECTION? Where are the “Greeters”? Guess who WON’T be buying unwrapped food from Walmart. Since Sam Walton died his stores have gone downhill and Sam is probably spinning over in his grave.
Bearded Dragons are the safest reptile pet because they do NOT carry salmonella. They love being carried around and flatten their bodies to absorb your body heat. I used to bring mine everywhere with me. There is no difference between this lady and another who carries a chihuahua in a purse. Really.

Most vegetables have likely been touched by a bug, animal, birdshit, or a migrant picker who just got back from pooping in the ditch. Even supposing it was initially sterile, there’s then the greasey paws of the packer, inspector, stockboy & customers, and then contact with the cart & the belt, which have germs on them an inch thick! Even if only you touched it… you had recently touched your keys, maybe dug change out to get a cart.
TL;DR- Wash that shit anyway.

Her tits hang lower than the lizzards tail.

Ok first of all, that is NOT an IGUANA, sheesh, shows how much all of you know. Second of all, I bet that pet is a HELL of a lot cleaner than those fingers you put in your mouth to chew on. Third of all, a lizard or some other animals CAN and ARE service animals. Not for seeing or hearing, but for keeping people calm or whatnot. A lizard or sugar glider or monkey or whatever can be used to help people w mental things like autism, bi polar, depression etc… If you don’t wash your fruit and veggies before eating them, well then, you’re stupid, regardless if someone has a lizard on their shoulder or not. Oh and before commenting why don’t you make sure you KNOW what you’re commenting on.

Its a bearded dragon, they are very clean and super sweet.
July 28th, 2011
Umm, could you go get the manager for me? I cant be sure but its seems that something has crawled outta the green peppers.
July 29th, 2011
she’s an asshole to bring that into store
for a lot of reasons but the biggest one being that the lizard has salmonella and she has it by the produce
if I had been there, I would’ve raised hell about it

After looking at some of the people on this site you are worried about the Bearded Dragon touching your food? I would hope you would all wash any produce before eating it anyway. I do feel sorry for the lizard though, walmart is not the healthiest environment for it For the record Bearded Dragons are the least likely reptile to carry salmonella, Turtles are the most likely.
