I’m Blue the Savannah Monitor, and I’m one of the animal ambassadors here at The Bunny Hutch and CLIMATES-Rescue! As an animal ambassador, I spend my days teaching visitors about the importance of responsible pet ownership.
Because there are very few laws about reptile breeding and adoption in the state of Virginia, I was purchase by a fraternity who didn’t know how to care for me properly. I was a party accessory, not a loved pet. They did not realize that as a full grown male monitor I would end up being several feet long and need to eat a diet of raw meat. I was not kept in a healthy environment. They even exposed me to alcohol and drugs. Then, a really awesome member of the fraternity told them that I needed a better home. They learned that I was a bad pet for a fraternity, and surrendered me so I could live a better life.
Most of the animals here at The Bunny Hutch are adoptable. However, due to my special needs, they decided to make me a permanent resident! I enjoy meeting visitors, going for walks on my leash, and visiting the beach.

You can also visit our Etsy shop to find unique lizard-made items! I paint beautiful artwork as an enrichment activity. Also, when I shed naturally as I grow, my humans use that shed to create jewelry, sun catchers, key chains, and more!
