About MacGyver the Lizard

MacGyver the Lizard, the internet’s "favorite dog-sized lizard." Known best for his large jowls, friendly personality and cuddly attitude, this Argentine red tegu lizard is so smart he comes when his name is called and is even potty trained. Clocking in at 20 pounds, 225K+ Instagram followers, 140K+ Facebook followers and another 50K "MacGyver SubScrybers" on YouTube, the red reptile has undoubtedly crawled his way across your screen in the past. A force to be reckoned with, MacGyver remains the only lizard that has beefed with rapper Snoop Dogg on Instagram, showing he truly fears no one and nothing.
