Mr.Lizard is OUTSIDE!

I came home this afternoon, noticed the cat was outside - didn't think anything about it. Came in the house, zipped downstairs, turned around and screamed - there sat Mr. Lizard. It's NOT that I'm scared of lizards, I just wish they could say "Hi! Don't be afraid, I want to go outside". But noooooooo, they are just there to scare the whits out of you.

So, I gathered the whits that were left; propped open the screen door; threw the rug over the lizard and picked it ALL up praying that lizards don't LEAP and took it outside. THERE HE IS! Velcro, the cat came running down the stairs to the lower patio and I had to shoo her away. That lizard has sat in the same position up against the rock bed and hasn't moved for over an hour. He needs to go HIDE.......... Now that he is outside, he is really beautifully marked.

Whew, no lizards in my bed tonight. Oh, and thanks to whoever made that suggestion - I've slept for two nights with one eye open!

He's pretty! But pointy and sharp looking, I really would not want him in the house, yikes! Glad the coast is clear again.

wow-you weren't kidding about his size, and i agree, he is beautifully marked. hoefully he will relocate so velcro does not get to him or her.

All kinds of lizards wanting to get in your bed - hmmm.

Sweet Dreams are not made of this...

Lizards, being cold blooded, require heat to warm them for life's various activities. And I will just leave the nature lesson there.

Why didn´t you put a ruler next to him for the photo so we could get a true idea of his length? I am skeptical of your "foot-long" description. Lizards that big tend to live in tropical areas.

My boys would have jumped for joy if that lizard had come in our house. I however would have reacted like you.

Ohh, he looks kinda scary, not the iguana that I expected. I am glad he is "free" again.

I don't think I would have slept too well knowing that it was creeping around the house. So glad he is outside. Velcro, on your toes, Cat. Those creatures are not allowed in the house!
