Cuddling time with a large monitor lizard

This large monitor lizard loves climbing up onto his owner's lap for warmth, a manicure, or just a good cuddle. His owners include photographer Galina Sokolova (@prosto_pryanik on TikTok) and Oleg Vladimirovicjh (@olegvladimirovicjh on TikTok) from Moscow, Russia. 

They have had the monitor lizard (whom they've named "Echo") for four years now, after taking him in when he was three years old. They say that despite his looks, Echo is as friendly and soft as any other pet (including their own two cats and additional pet lizards) and he loves to relax with his owners.
