The actor, who has starred in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Jurassic World” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” took to Instagram to celebrate what he called international #TakeYourLizardForAWalkDay.

In a video, Pratt shows Leo, his DPL -- domestic pet lizard -- on a leash.

“Fact: in 2018 fewer that 1 in 12 DPL’s (domestic pet lizards) even have leashes and far fewer will even go on a nice relaxing walk with their owner,” Pratt writes. “Demand action now.”

In the video, Leo looks content as Pratt breaks into song.

He’s a fortunate lizard.
