One woman upped everyone’s ‘Gram game with her infamous dog-sized lizard that lavishes in Netflix and salmon. Which made us start thinking, is this lizard the new Grumpy Cat?
Well for one, this one’s special – it’s Instagram’s favourite dog-sized lizard, MacGyver (@macgyverlizard).
MacGyver biologically originates from a species of lizard called Argentine Giant Tegu. Deviating from its reptilian roots, we acknowledge that MacGyver is the owners’, Scott and Ice’s, “scaly baby” as you can see from their cute family portraits or through their Instagram accounts – namely MacGyver’s Mommy (@macgyvermommy) and Mac’s Daddy (mac_daddy_himself).
Here’s a glimpse into the Internet-famous giant lizard’s life:
Was once a smol thang #MajorThrowback
But now a big boi
And a cherry-popping predator
Slides into your DMs
And also… (self-explanatory)
Can be extra clingy
Anyhow, MacGyver is just your typical Millennial
But is more famous than us and goes for meet-ups
Maybe because MacGyver is in Games of Thrones?
Quite the meme too
McGyver is a “Very very very very very good dog”
Last but not least, MacGyver is an opinionated creature and has a political view
In a VICE-Broadly interview on ‘What It’s Like to Live with a Famous Giant Lizard’, it is known that:
“Mac supports Bernie because of Bernie’s human-friendly policies, especially his stance on campaign finance reform. He thought about supporting Hillary or Trump, because rising global temperatures and the extinction of humans might benefit his cold-blooded brethren, but he finally decided to give humans a second shot.”
