While many people may not think reptiles can be loveable and cuddly, one TikToker wants to change that thought. Crazy Caiman Lady on TikTok has posted many fun videos of her caiman, as well as lizards and turtles, but one of her most recent went viral quickly – a video of her caiman snuggling up to her and showing love.

The now viral video with more than 8.6 million views captioned, “I will write a book on it one day,” shows a cute little caiman snuggling up to her leg in bed, as well as putting his chin on her back relaxing, and getting pets and rubs looking super content. Words written over the video reads, “Everyone says reptiles and crocodilians are not capable of feelings. But I don’t agree. This boy loved me.”
Comments On The Video Are Mixed But Mostly Positive
Comments on the video were mixed between positive thoughts of loving how sweet he is and naysayers saying he just wants your body heat or it was just perfect timing to film. One commenter wrote, “reptiles definitely have some level of emotion and recognition of people who feed and are nice to them. my beardy only lets me hold/hand feed him.” Another added, “he doesn’t know he’s an alligator… he’s just a baby 🥰🥰🥰🥰.” And one other follower added, “The snuggles 🥰 They can form a bond so for the people saying, Just using you for warmth from body heat. It’s more.”
Then there were the people who don’t believe the little guy can show affection or should be trusted. “They’re also capable of this thing called ‘the death roll,’ one person wrote. Another added, “He lays by your side to measure you up, then thinks one day one day.”
Some Followers Caught On To Sad News
A few of her followers caught on to one sad thing mentioned in the video that many may have missed – the word “loved.” One follower wrote, “PLEASE TELL ME THAT WAS A TYPO 🥺,” to which the creator responded, “😔” Many others jumped into the thread to say “No!” in sadness, and one other wrote, “Past tense? Nooo did little Tango pass? I am so, so sorry for your loss sweetheart 💕 he was so special.”
Crazy Caiman Lady Posts Many Adorable Reptile Videos
Many of her videos show a different side to her reptile friends than what many have in their minds. In one video captioned, “Being an influencer is hard work when your a little dinosaur,” she shows how she gives her caiman a daily massage and just how much he enjoys it.
