Jaow Toong Gnuen, an iguana who once called Pattaya’s Avenue galleria home, still likes to hang out and pose for photos there.

His owner’s shop has moved, but an iguana who once called Pattaya’s Avenue galleria home still likes to hang out there.

The 9-year-old male reptile named Jaow Toong Gnuen belongs to tattoo artist Prasert Thosa-gnuan, who once had an outdoor kiosk at the Second Road mall.

His iguana had the run of The Avenue and became used to people and became friendly enough so that he posed for photos.

But Prasert moved his shop out of the mall to a nearby sidestreet. Jaow Toong Gnuen, however, liked the mall and continues to come back during the day, sunning himself on the concrete and posing for more selfies.

But the smart iguana knows where his bread is buttered and returns home at night to eat and sleep.
