The other day I walked out on the front porch and here was one of these lizards. I don’t even know what kind they are but they should be called racing lizards. You can’t believe how fast these little guys can run. We have a million of these things around and they scare me half to death because when I hear them rustling through the dry grass and leaves, my first thought is SNAKE but when I see how fast they’re moving, I know it’s not a snake.
This one is shedding his skin. I had to laugh thinking of the money some of us spend on facial products – exfoliation and creams, chemical peels, face lifts, etc. And here’s a lowly lizard. His skin gets dull and dry and it just peels right off on its own with a nice, bright, wrinkle free new skin.
Surely would be nice if human skin just peeled away every now and then. Doesn’t hardly seem right that lizards can do that and we can’t.
