The pet owner was bitten Sunday at his home in northern Macomb County and is expected to make a full recovery, The Macomb Daily reported.
"We've responded to all sorts of animal bites in the past but I don't ever recall us ever having to deal with a lizard bite," said Lenox Township Fire Chief Dennis Fouchia.
The pet lizard was not quarantined and is not expected to be, Fouchia said.
