Lizardman and Lizardman

Famous Freak Immortalized in Wax


Lizardmanm the tattooed and pierced author, philosopher and self-described freak has unveiled his own likeness.


Ripley's Believe It or Not!
"These guys really nailed it," Sprague, Ripley's number two act of all time, said in a press release. "It was pretty cool to unveil myself."

Four Ripley artists spent 200 hours on the likeness, including 60 hours just paining all of the Lizardman's tiny green scales.

"I can now be in two places at the same time," said Spague -- but that's not exactly true.

Ripley's is actually creating a second wax statue, so he'll be in three places at the same time.

The first wax Lizardman is now on display at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium in Orlando -- and the second will soon make its way to the Times Square Odditorium in New York City.
