    Lizards gross me out and freak me out! However, if they're small little gecko's its fine, I'll pick those up. But I'll even hold an iguana, but the rest just freak me the eff out!


    Well, today I was walking up to a friends house and there was this big fat black lizard near the bottom of the steps up to the house. It freaked me out and I even got the chills! I continued walking and it started Jumping up the steps and made big plopping noises when it landed! I later saw there were about four of them! I wish I had a gun, they seriously scare me!

    Don't move to South Florida then. There are like a bazillion lizards around here. They range from the little ones (which I can't stand) to the big ones that are like little dinosaurs. LOL!!

    There was one of the small ones in my brand new car for a couple weeks. I was so afraid to touch it. But, I finally got it out without crashing the car. icon_smile.gif

    My sister's neighbor has two big lizards. There has been times when they have escaped their cages. The male is apparently castrated and still aggressive. Plus, the female apparently layed eggs all over the house one day.

    I know, a chiseled midsection could really help the Lizard Man's intimidation factor.

    There's only one lizard in the U.S. that I don't like; the alligator lizard. They're about 8-10 inches long, and they bite like crazy! Nasty little bastards. Otherwise, I really love lizards and snakes, and most all herps. Even American alligators can be cool if they know you.
    Geckos, utas (side-bltched lizards) desert spinys, fringe-toed lizards, desert iguanas, chuckwallas, and green iguanas are all cool. So are true chameleons.
    YAY for lizards!

    Please don't kill 'em; they're good to have around, and powerful spirit guides, too!

    One time I bought my kids an Iguana and we named it Lawanna after my ex wifes sister in law. They looked a lot alike. Since we live in AZ, we eventually just let the thing go as it was getting so big. We see it all the time and the poor thing is huge.

    Those don't seem to scare me, however in person I might have a different opinion, but they seem interesting really!

    You can keep the Gila monster though! icon_biggrin.gif

    I have Western Alligator lizards in my yard, as well as skinks. I used to have one as a pet when I lived in Austin.

    I just love them.

    I have the cutest little lizards all over my complex here. The downside is the dumb little things run along the walkways and I end up tripping over myself to keep from stepping on them.

    When I was a kid I had newts in my fish tanks, and my mother hated them. They would often crawl out of the tanks and we'd never see them again, so she'd often have nightmares that they'd crawl into her bed while she's sleeping.

    Lizards are nice. icon_biggrin.gif

    In high school, flying dragons are common among the willows planted there (the school is built on a marshy area and is surrounded by a sort of forest of willows and other hardwoods.

    They are one of the most beautiful lizards ever. You see them gliding from tree to tree/ They are virtually invisible when against a tree bark, but when they fly, they reveal the colors on their 'wing' membrane.

    Ours was Draco mindanensis obviously and it was brownish with light blue/teal/yellow to yellow/red markings on the membranes. In all other ways they look the same with the other Draco species. They are quite small, and you can crush one just by mishandling it.

    We even caught two of those one time. icon_biggrin.gif. The wingspread is about as wide as your palm. They're like reptilian butterflies to be honest. Shy and won't even bite when you've caught it, just pretend like it's dead then bolt when you're not looking. So yeah, lizards are nice... but...

    Caterpillars are TERRIFYING!
