A lizard moved in
I admit, I have a soft place in my heart for all creatures, even the ones that shed their skins and don't like to be held or pet. And I'm thrilled because it seems as if the lil fella' in the picture above has picked my plant as a home.
One day I put this plant on the porch while I mopped my floor. when I went to move the plant back inside, this lil guy was there. I didn't have the heart to shoo him away . . . so I waited til the next morning. He was still there. and the day after that and the day after that.
"Why didn't you shoo him away?" you might ask. My answer is this. I really liked seeing him there. Whenever I look out the front window or go on the porch, I check to see if he's there. He usually is and I'm disappointed when I dont' see him. I even got to watch him shed his skin one day. It's to the point where I don't want to bring the plant in, even if he isn't in there, because I dont' want to take his home away.
I think I want to give him a name. What's a good lizard name?
I know he'll soon go away and do whatever lizards do during NC winter, but until then, I want to give him a name.
I love him. ;0)
