Lizard


An anolis hanging on the porch.
 We have anolis lizards here in South Florida, they are sweet little things having no teeth yet they eat all sorts of bugs which endear them to me.

This time of the year they go in and out through the small openings in the screen doors, on flowers I bring in, or other ways I don’t know of.

Last fall a friend was camping in a state park near our home and of course one of the lizards snuck in their camper.  When they hauled it back to Pennsylvania and were going through the process of cleaning it up and preparing the camper for winter they came across the wayward lizard. 

Bless all of their hearts the humans of the story decided to put the lizard in a box with holes and some cushioning and mail it back to Florida deciding there is no way a creature so delicate could manage in the freezing temperatures of a Pennsylvania winter. 

My thought was there is no way such a delicate creature could manage the US Postal system.  Guess what?  The little guy made it and is continuing life where he started.
