Uromastyx likes her belly rubbed

this is a fucking lizard getting her belly rubbed if you don’t think that’s the cutest shit then get out of my blog

LOOK AT ITS LIL ARMS FLAPPING AWWWWWWWW

Just a quick reminder that this is not in any way cute, and that this animal is incredibly agitated.

No ^ you cannot bash on our happiness.

This makes you incredibly ignorant.

I’m not ignorant, I just choose to accept the fact that I cannot do anything to save this lizard, so I take it at face value.

"I know this animal is in distress, but I find it funny anyways."

When people like me put little reminders on posts like this, it’s not for no reason. It’s because by spreading this, you spread misinformation that leads other reptile owners to think this behaviour is cute or funny when in actuality it is stressful and downright mean the animal. When you’ve been presented with a fact, and choose to condone it because it makes you happy at the expense of that animal’s well-being, you are indeed ignorant.

Or maybe this particular lizard breaks all of the preconceived scientific jargon-ized bullshit and actually likes it’s belly rubbed? There’s always that. Besides, it isn’t for anyone but the owner to decide what they do to their pet or how they interpret the pet’s actions. So in all fairness, respect, and peacefulness don’t make a big deal out of something that doesn’t need to be. P:

In all fairness, respect, and peacefulness, if your friend hit their dog and said “Well they like it!” because the dog continued to be friendly towards them, would you continue to think that it’s up to them to interpret the pet’s actions? Or would you call that abuse? Is it any different than with a reptile?

Stress can kill small animals. Falsely interpreting behaviour as good when it is a sign of something distressing or potentially harmful can kill small animals. Can kill ANY animal. This uro cannot speak to us to say it likes or does not like something. And given the facts presented about this specie’s behaviour, I’m more inclined to speak to the probability it does note actually like it’s belly rubbed.

Quoting last night’s explanation: “For female uro’s, when they don’t want to mate, they will flip onto their backs. It’s a sign of submission, and she flails her arms in an attempt to get her owner to leave her alone.” Feel free to do some googling.

In the end, if there is no other voice for any animal out there, I will absolutely make a big deal of it. We are not above anything, especially when it involves a life and our own entertainment.
