When Mel was young, he found a baby Varactyl that ran away from a group of poachers. And naturally anyone who finds a friendly, dog sized lizard is gonna want to keep it. So after a lot of begging, Nat decided to let him keep it to teach him responsibility. Mel named him Peete, but he had no idea that it was still a baby. They eventually had to build a whole new shed to keep him in, but Peete’s been a happy member of the crew ever since.
