People are obsessed with this massive lizard and his hilariously human-like antics

You’ve likely come across dozens of Insta-famous dogs and cats in your social feeds, because who doesn’t love adorable furry animals? But we seriously doubt you’ve ever seen anything quite like this woman and her reptilian pal, MacGyver.

The pair are making a name for themselves on Instagram and we can’t help, but obsess over their unlikely bond.

Meet MacGyver–an Argentine red tegu lizard from California and his owner, Ice.

At 4 years old, MacGyver might be the most popular lizard on Earth.

This 20-pound lizard is roughly the size of a small dog.

Or slightly larger.

And is just as cuddly as one.

“He can go anywhere he wants pretty much in the house, but he’ll choose to come over and sleep right in front of the couch where our feet are,” the owner, Scott, tells The Dodo.

Though, I’m not sure how I would feel about a reptile of that size laying on my head.

MacGyver has quite the impressive social media following—over 156K people on Instagram alone.

His followers love watching him participate in daily activities like eating lunch…
