A lizard fell off the roof of our house. What was it doing on our roof? Living there, along with two other lizards, its lizard family.
And the lizard landed in our back yard.
He’s been wandering back and forth back and forth, all over the small little yard space, trying to find a way out.
This has happened twice before. The first time, he climbed up the wall and back on to the roof. The second time was the time we had the back door open and he came in and wouldn’t leave.
This time, the back door is closed – we learned, but evidently, the lizard didn’t – so he’s not coming in.
And no, I haven’t gotten close enough to tell if it’s actually a he. And no, I’m not planning to. 😛 Ever.
At any rate, he’s been walking around back there, walking over and ruining plants. *shriek!* He won’t leave!
This lizard is about four feet long. And no, I am NOT getting close enough to kill it. Cuz, you know, it could claw my throat out (have you seen the claws on that thing?) Or break my legs. Or something. Nope. Ain’t gonna make my day.
And while I could go outside and help the lizard escape, I ain’t gonna. I’m not willing to put my personal safety at risk. And if I went back there, it would be.
Oberon’s safe – he can jump and run way way faster than I can, plus he apparently is small enough that the lizard doesn’t find him at all threatening.
