It's not the kind of petting zoo most people have in mind. Dylan Gillies lit up, as he spent time with the lizards yesterday at the Ag Fair in Kenora.
"I just like the feeling of their skin, the way they smell," he says.
Visitors to the fair also got to see ponies, goats, donkeys and a few baby chicks.
Outside, the thunder and lightning passed over quickly enough, so the rides could resume.
