In a viral video, a lizard sheds its skin and is compared to ground beef.

People have compared the reptile to “ground beef” after seeing what a pet owner’s lizard looks like when shedding his skin.

Dani, an animal lover, posts videos of her foster and rescue animals on TikTok on a regular basis, and one of them is obviously the star of the show.

Dani, who goes by the handle Danimal.Kingdom, posted a video of her red tegu lizard bathing as he prepares to shed his skin.

“Trying to clarify to my lizard that he has to soak because he’s shedding,” Dani, from Los Angeles, said in the video. But he can smell the meat I just took out of the fridge and knows I’m going to feed it to the other animals.”

Kato, the tegu, desperately attempts to crawl out of the pool, a transparent coating on his chest clearly visible as the top layer of skin loosens.

Dani’s original sound

People requested more shedding material after the video received over seven million views.

Later that day, Dani responded with another video, writing, “Here’s an old one from when he had stuck shed around his eyes and he was freaking out.”

Dani, who also owns dogs and cats, can be seen gently peeling the dead skin off Kato’s face.

The follow-up video drew a lot of attention as well, with over five million views as a result of people’s fascination with the spectacle.

“He looks so raw,” Tullius said of the lizard’s natural red color, which led others to believe he was inflamed.

C4nopen3r thought: “ground beef lizard,” while another TikToker agreed, saying: “He looks like ground beef.”

While SharraMT commented: “Handsome fellow. Looks like sausage to me sorry, jut his color is what I mean.”

And Xplr Stan asked: “What type of tegu is he? He’s gorgeous, he kinda reminds me of raw meat though lmao no hate.”

Dani, who also has a black-and-white tegu, explained more about Kato’s origins, saying: “This is Kato. He was rescued about four years ago. I’ve never been a reptile person but, when I saw his puppy eyes and cheeks all. This is a brief summary.
