Nothing comes between Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King and his best pal. While most would consider a dog to be man’s best friend, King has shown the same relationship can be had with a lizard.

Those who follow King on social media lately have been given a glimpse into King’s lifestyle and how he likes to do different activities with his pet lizard. For example, some people like to jog with dogs, but King prefers to skateboard with lizards.

That lizard sure seems to be having a grand old time, but Tony Hawk he is not. But look at how much fun King is having!

It would seem King is trying to get his lizard friend to enjoy athletic activities. Just last week King was seen jumping rope alongside his four-legged reptile buddy.

I’m going to have to start paying closer attention to King because I cannot wait to see what he is doing next with this lizard. What’s next for “King and the Lizard?”
