This is about my pet iguana, Onizuka Godzilla. Here is the journaling:
Let me start by saying this is not Onizuka Godzilla. This is Joey’s lizard, Sundial. But seeing Sundial reminds me of my pet iguana when I was younger. I got “Zuka” when I was in college from my brother. He had one, too, and the two of them lived together in the same aquarium. I remember taking him out to hold and telling him about my day at school, I would feed him tofu and sometimes for a treat, crickets. One day my brother decided to sell his iguana, but I wanted to keep my Zuka. Iguanas get attached with other iguanas. Without my brother’s iguana Zuka became sad and did not eat for a long time. I took him to the vet one day, but he was already really weak. Within a few days he passed away. I remember coming home from school and just crying all day. We buried him the next day and I cried some more. A year passed and I still did not want another pet, but amazingly, we spotted another iguana in the backyard. I knew it was impossible to be Zuka, but it helped me have closure to know he still loved us. Maybe one day we can get another iguana.
