Lizard pic..in Honor of Earth Day!

This lovely green anole was wandering along the brick facade of my home this morning.

They often lurk by the front door and try to run inside the house.

I know it's spring because this little guy got in the front door before I was able to catch him and take him outside again.

When they feel threatened, they puff up a red ball in their throats to look poisonous and scary to predaors.

They are also called chameleons and are able to change color very quickly.

He is the tiniest dinosaur in my garden and I salute his ability to survive and change on this Earth Day.

Poor little lizard, but his cold eyes remind me of Cheney.

Beautiful. Do their tails fall off when they get nabbed? I remember catching lizards as a young boy when we lived down south...

Yep, but I am very careful and have not broken one off since I was a child. But if the tail does break off, it will grow back.

I just wish you wouldn't defame that lizard, the way you did, by comparing this noble creature to that much less noble one!

glenda, could your little anole Do the robot?

No doubt Cheney has cold eyes, but it seems his heart meds are making him sleepy as of late.

I too protest the application of cheney's name to that little creature. If his family hears what you have done you had better watch out for an atttack by the Anole Army.

I humbly apologize for my degeneralization and mischaracterization of little anole.
It was a cheap reference at his expense and I shall labor to bring him small gnats as tribute.
