Subject: BS: Lizard Farm...
From: Bobert
Date: 18 Oct 13 - 08:30 PM

Seems that this is the time of year to put all kinds of things away for the winter and that means...

...pushing lots of lizards out of their hidie-holes...

Today we went about putting up the big umbrella by the pool which hadn't been opened for the last couple of weeks - maybe a month - and 11 of these cuties thought they were going to ride winter out inside of it... Very entertaining as we had to all but grab 'um and throw them out but it had to be done...

They'll set up shop in the teak box with the other 2-3 dozen of their cousins...

I have always liked lizards, but I haven't seen one in more than 25 years. So far as I know, there aren't any in Alaska.

They mostly do not survive the winters in Canada. So, we don't have many of 'em (except newts and salamanders)that you have in southern climes.

But, to fill in the evolutionary gap, we do have an large number of cold-blooded politicians that seem to do quite well for themselves in any climate, winter of summer. They normally come out of their cozy hiding spots every four years or so, during the election period.

Mudcat seems to provide shelter for several. Mostly UK species, bit of an insult to newts I 'm afraid.

I know what you mean, ake- lizard brain, and not much else. We may have different people in mind, though.

I have read that it is not the winter temperatures in Alaska that keep us from having snakes and other cold-blooded reptiles but rather the length of the winter.

That's true. Akenhateon means the likes of me.

My pond has a colony of newts. Don't think he'd like them though. A couple of them seem to be into soft furnishings, parrot weed goes sooooo divine with lumps of igneous rock.   The frogs are disgusted by their presence though, and reckon they will spread disease if they don't have their lifestyle reported on a list.

Back to the newts... They seem to survive the winter ok. I put a couple of balls in the pond to stop it freezing fully over, which helps them, the frogs and a couple of small snakes that have taken up residence recently.

Lizard brain? My niece in Singapore inherited an iguana that came with the house. It didn't have a name and I suggested Isambard. It stuck. I have been a few times and have had the novelty of taking him for walks on his lead. He has far more brains than a certain greyhound not a million miles from where I am sat.

We are discussing newts. How intellectual should the discussion be?

Anyway, the debate has to be at level of the least intellectual Scotsman.

Are these lizards poisonous or in other ways harmful? If not, why poke them out of their hidey holes? The poor things are only trying to survive the winter. All reptiles and amphibians in UK are protected, and it's illegal to kill or even disturb them. (We have road signs erected by the authorities with a picture of a frog in a red triangle. That means watch out for the poor things and try not to squash them on the road!) Whole building development projects have been delayed here for months if newts or rare amphibians are found on the land. I think it's rather sweet that your lizards all hid in the big umbrella. And what is this sinister 'teak box' all about?

I don't know what kind of lizards these guys are... Seems we have a lot that look like the the green pone in the GEICO commercials and others which are more patterned... None bite at all... They are pretty friendly... I had one ride around on my shirt for several hours while I was working...

Well, Eliza, the little darlings are sneaky and will end up spending the winter where ever they want... There are at least two here in the house that we haven't been able to catch but even if we do they'll figure out how to get back in...

lizard farm.....great name for a band!

we have lizards in Dorset - not as many as in Spain. I don't think they can be dangerous. I've not heard of anybody suffering lizard bites. or stings. or even getting a dirty look from a lizard.

I've seen small lizards in the Tropics that change colour to match whatever wall they stick themselves to. Even a bright strawberry pink one on my bedroom wall. Very pretty!

Don't lizards eat insects? That would incline me in their favour; a fly-catching lizard could be downright useful in the kitchen.

There are precious few venomous lizards in the Americas--or anywhere else, for that matter. The only one of which I know is the Gila Monster and it is endangered.

LOL, Big Al...

But seriously, I love all of them... And we really aren't all that concerned about the ones that have found their way into the house... They are quiet guests and if they poop then it's so small that the vacuum gets it... And how much can they pee???

In the Carolinas, Bobert, you will also find snakes in attics, traveling up and down on the vines and lattices on the outside walls. Keep vermin down. I was astonished the first time I heard that. It seems to me that I'd rather share my space with a lizard.

I never knew 10cc named their band after lizard pee?

In fact, I was under the impression that..

Hey! Lizards must be what our cousins call cool dudes!

There once was a well hung iguana
Who called his John Thomas a banana
Al said "This is a limerick!
What you have there is a yellow prick!"
Now find something to rhyme with sultana
