We just had a Blue Tailed Skink in the house. I’m proud to say I caught it before the cat or the dog did. I really enjoy these things.
When I lived in Wilmington (ages birth-6) and Cary (ages 6-10), North Carolina, I frequently caught the green lizards. We used to have so much fun letting them bite onto your finger and just hang there. I always toyed with the idea of letting one hang on an ear lobe but I don’t think I was ever that brave.
