The latest in pet crazes comes from a little guy native to Kenya, the rock agama (Agama mwanzae). These red and blue lizards bare a striking resemblance to our childhood superhero, Spiderman. They can run around on their hind legs and scale walls exactly like our comic book friend.

If handled regularly and with care, the rock agama is known to make a very docile pet; however, specialized equipment is required to maintain their temperature. Its exotic diet consists of locusts, crickets, mealworms and waxworms.
