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.
