This L.A. Couple Met with the Help of a 3-Foot-Long Lizard

Each week we ask a local couple, ”How did you meet?”

In our series How Did You Meet?, local couples tell us how they first hooked up.

Rachel and Roscoe love to explore Los Angeles on scooters—but it was a reptile rather than a Bird that brought them together.

Rachel was in her backyard attempting to balance her three-foot-long pet lizard on her friend’s feet as her friend did a headstand (as people do). From their balcony, the guys next door noticed the acrobatics act and summoned their friend Roscoe to come check it out.

“[My friend] told us there were some cuties,” Roscoe, an actor, explains. “When I came to the balcony to check it out, I saw Rachel trying to balance a lizard on her friends feet.”

Rachel recalls, “They asked what we were doing and it ended up turning into a big party. We hit it off and have been together over a year now.” All thanks to a lizard named Marvin.
