Somewhere along the line, our western culture has garnered the idea that reptiles aren’t cute. We might’ve acquired our stigma against scales from those fearsome Komodo dragon Discovery Channel documentaries, or perhaps it has something to do with a certain basilisk chasing after a certain lightning-headed wizard. Whatever the reason, it’s time to rethink our perceptions and change our opinions on one reptilian friend in particular: the entirely cute and wholly handsome iguanas, of course! The following are 7 photos depicting definitive proof that our iguana buddies are the most wholesome armored friends you’re likely to ever meet.

What snuggly iguanas we have here! These two beaus can’t help but cuddle up when close to each other. Surely, the time of lovebirds has passed, and the era of loveiguanas has arisen.
