My lizard.
I got a lizard at the store. She looked at me. I looked at her. I took her home.
I saw my lizard eat four crickets. She was full.
I picked her up out of her cage. I held her upside down. I let her hang from my thumb. She wouldn't let go. She crawled up my shirt to my neck. She went down my shirt. She was wild. I calmed her down.
I put her on the couch. We watched TV.
Whenever I pet her, she falls asleep. I say, "Good night."


About the Author: EAR is seven years old. He likes lizards. His lizard's name is Lizzie.

(This is not Lizzie, but a lizard I spotted on my walk yesterday. I'm sure he's just as much fun as Lizzie, but I did not feel the urge to make friends).

You have a knack for spotting these reptilian critters!
So I guess we won't see any poems about your encounter....?

Leaping Lizards, Isabella.
I'm enjoying the "balance" in your photo. Get it, "balance" :-)?
So is it like a flea circus for lizards?

Cute little guy. Looks like it has a little apartment and everything.

Thanks all for visiting!

Pastor Rick - I think it's more like a condo, since he can make structural changes inside ;-)

He is adorable. I can understand why they are interesting to little ones...they are small.

Great photo and love EAR's story.

Thanks for passing by Monte Carlo DP yesterday - it took a while to get added to DP family because I already have Menton - so am happy you found it independently.

All the best - Jilly x
