The dog's interest in a corner of the yard alerted us to Mr. Lizard in a flowerpot. About 8 inches long, he's the biggest we have seen here.
Hours later, he was still there and it occurred to Kathy that he was stuck. Yup, he couldn't climb the glazed ceramic walls. So we watched him slowly die.
No, kidding (and on Earth Day. I'm bad. Oh, wait that was yesterday. Tasteless joke, now ok.). So she released him.
But the slightly sad news is that in the leaves was another lizard who had met the same fate but quite some time earlier.
