This Sitcom Scene-Stealer is a Fountain Valley Pet Shop’s Headliner

Stat Sheet: Frank the Lizard

The Asian water monitor better known as Kipling on Disney Channel’s “Jessie” still resides where he was hatched, at the Fountain Valley shop Prehistoric Pets. “Frank has a completely awesome personality,” owner Jay Brewer says. “He’s just a big teddy bear. He’s always dependable.” Frank’s done guest spots on “Good Day LA” and Conan O’Brien’s late-night talker. And he’s an actor with range: In his recurring role on the teen sitcom, recently renewed for a fourth season, Mr. Kipling was discovered to be a Mrs. Kipling when she laid a dozen eggs.
