Andy the Lizard Man

Spring has barely sprung and this is Andy's second lizard of the season. He considers himself faster than a lizard and spends most of the day in the garden - a lizard hotspot! He isn't the least bit afraid to snatch one right up, even though I've seen them bite him over and over again. ("It's just slobber mom.") He is really gentle with them and carries them around until dark. Then he returns them to the spot he captured them and declares he could catch them again tomorrow. He is, after all, faster than a lizard.

Lizards are at the top of his reptile list but he has been known to cry because we wouldn't go get him a desert snake. It is a hard life living with all these restrictions.
