THE QT's Pimp Your Pet competition is for all pets great and small - and Ally the lizard currently tops the list of weird and wonderful animals entered.

The Ipswich bearded dragon, owned by Daniel Vogler, is the only reptile among a field of dozens of dogs and cats.

Ally is pictured relaxing in the sunny surrounds of a beach diorama, and the clever fake holiday snap joined other colourful entries in the Pimp Your Pet Facebook competition.

Mr Vogler said his unusual choice of pet was a faithful and fun companion.

"You know the saying flat out like a lizard in the sun? Well, I have that lizard," Mr Vogler said.

"This lizard is a fantastic pet because you can just about do anything with it.

"You can take her for walks on your hand or shoulder and not worry about her running away."

Mr Vogler's entry is among 48 entries into Pimp Your Pet so far.

The competition offers a $250 Pet Barn gift voucher and $250 Harvey Norman gift voucher.

Entries are open until Thursday, November 1, and can be made online at The Queensland Times Facebook page.
