More critters

So far, I’ve showed you our tarantulas and snakes. But wait, there’s more. You haven’t seen our lizards. These guys are tough to catch, even in a photograph. I swear, they’re quicker than bunnies. 6 foot (2 meter) high fences stop rabbits, but these guys just climb them and it is up and over in a flash. I’ve been trying to get a picture of them, but they scatter quickly. This one was photographed from inside and was on the porch getting out of the sun and heat. It’s just a baby and you can see it at the edge of the cement.

The lizard is hard to see, so I’ve enlarged it:

Hopefully in the future, I’ll get a better picture of one of these. I did manage to bite the tail off of one once. I believe it grows back. No, Dougall, it doesn’t taste like chicken, it tastes like dinosaur. Not only do I want a better picture of a lizard, but I need one of our bats. They’re tough to get. They come out after sunset and the way they fly is crazy-not smooth like a bird, they weave and dart.

  1. We are ALWAYS trying to get the little skinks that skitter across our brick wall…you are sooooo right, they are fast. SHE can’t even get a picture of them.

    But maybe this summer….

  2. Greetings from sunny New Zealand. We have lizards and a reptile called at tuatara in New Zealand but Me and Nellie have never seen any. They hide in the bush and only come out at night. Love Nellie and Jasper the two bestest maremmas in the land

  5. We’ve got those here too Kyla and we’ve heard rumours that our cat sisters have not only caught but eaten them! We personally enjoy a raw hide or hoof for a snack or treat.

  9. We have lizards all over the place in Florida. I don’t really care about them, but my kittie sibling Jillian loves to catch them and show them to Mommy!


  10. I had a bat in my room once – what a big baby I turned into. It’s not that I’m scared of bats but I don’t want them flying into me whilst they go mad-dashing-flying about a room. I did the only thing a girl could do – I called for help.

    • I left a comment on your blog yesterday and it is still “waiting for moderation”.

      • So sorry for the delay. Think I need a sugar-daddy so I don’t have to work at the same time as trying to keep up with the blogging world.

        To add to what I replied – to the comment that I finally found and replied to – whew – can you imagine if he’d had to change a baby’s nappy??? 🙂
