It's not easy being green...unless your skin is blessed with chromatophores. Posted by Picasa

Cute, but what is he?

Not only did we have another bat in the house last night, but I found a battered lizard that one of my cats brought in. He wasn't nearly as dapper as yours, though.

Hick,
He's a Carolina Anole, or if you grew up in FL...a chameleon. Not a real chameleon, but that is a very common name for them.

Did I spell chameleon correctly? It's one of those words I always pause and wonder about as I write it.

You need a bathouse and some screen over whatever tiny gap is allowing them in.
The cat is probably bringing the bats in and releasing them just to be...uh...catty.

Now you're just being mean! I love anoles. Unfortunately, we are just north of their range, and I do mean just north -- they are present in the county immediately to our south. Now, I ask you, is that fair! :-)

Swamp,
So near...and yet so far. You would think CAROLINA anoles would be all over your state.
They have a lot of personality...for a reptile.
